2 Nephi 1:20 it reads,"Inasmuch as ye shall keep my commandments ye shall prosper in the land." I know that as we keep the commandments of God we like a kite in a heavy wind can stay secure in difficult circumstances. Let the commandments be a blessing rather than a burden in your life.

(Alma 34:32). We are birds who have left the nest to prove we will be obedient to the Father. I love the hymn O My Father, it truly speaks to the soul as to where we came from. I am so grateful to know that I once lived in the presence of my Father in Heaven. I am also grateful to know why we are here and where we are going, thanks to the Plan of Salvation.

Jesus Christ, unlike my tie. I love the verse in Isaiah that reads, "Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool."Isaiah 1:18

Elder Scott gives a wonderful talk on the subject on where we should spend our time entitled, First Things First. I think I often need to reevaluate what really matters in life and how does the time I spend correspond to it. Sometimes as a missionary it seems there is not enough time in the day to fit in all the things that needed to be done. I can't imagine having a family a job and everything in between. How do you manage your time?

As of lately my mind has been focused on the principle of gratitude. In general conference we heard great talks from our Prophet Thomas S. Monson (The Divine Gift of Gratitude) and also the apostles, such as Elder Holland, on this very subject. I too am so grateful for my many blessings; there is so much to be thankful for. I am grateful for my family, my companion, the people of Providence, the beautiful fall colors and especially my Savior Jesus Christ, to name a few. I love the hymn Count Your Blessings - #241 and I too need thank the Lord for all I have been given. Like the Leper I hope I will return and thank the Lord for healing me.
