I Know that Joseph Smith was a Prophet of God!! September 22, 2014

So, yes, the rain that blew in off the coast lasted all the hours of the
day.  I did thoroughly enjoy that to the fullest (: I think my hair soaked
and re-dried like 3 or 4 times that day.  Good thing I never do it anyways
(; haha
We were headed to see a new investigator for the first time the other day.
We met up at a member's home so that he could come and follow us to her
house.  Right when we pulled into his driveway, all of the sudden my
companera says, "uh, there's a spider" and I'm thinkin yeah that's cool
haha you'll live...and I looked over to see this giant monster dash into
our AC vent!! It was there the entire day and we were too scared to even
open the vent! It decided to come out on our way to our dinner appointment
and on MY side of the car! Right above the steering wheel!! I pulled right
over to the side of the road and jumped out of the car haha it was so
dramatic.  But Wow. It was scary.  We made the elders drive all the way up
to look for it and eventually they found it later that night...we just made
them drive our truck during that time so that it wouldn't get us (: haha
Also, I ate cow tongue yesterday. I think knowing what it was first kinda
tripped me up because I couldn't get past what it was to enjoy it haha.

Well, lately I have just been feeling such an appreciation for the Prophet
Joseph Smith.  He endured an incredible load so that we all could have and
enjoy the fullness of the Everlasting Gospel!  It pains my heart to think
of the persecution...and then I think of all of the other prophets of old
who went through so much as well...even our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
I think about the thought of anything happening to my family...I couldn't
bear to stand even the thought!  I would take anything I could for them.
So...I guess that is how Jesus Christ felt when He literally DID take it
all for His family.  My love and appreciation grows daily....I love my
Savior and His mercy.

Shine on!
