Week 46

LOL! I am actually wondering and thinking really hard why do missionaries get really fat in mission even though they walk a lot, they cycle a lot and they exercise a lot but it doesn't seem like its slimming down the body. Looks like I am going hardcore on my last 6 months going on diet before I come back. 

How is Jonathan doing right now? Tell him I hope to see him again in mission field. 

Yesterday in the church, they were discussing about family issue and they were asking opinions from us missionaries. I remember that our family used to have a lot of argument because of my ignorance. But I am glad its all over and it taught me a great lesson. So, this family has an older son who is studying abroad and the mom always comparing the younger son with the older son saying how much he needs to follow his brother's example. Adeline, Robinia and I go to the church school and receive religious teaching in the school and in the church. I cannot deny that religion really do play a great role in strengthening the family. I have seen how my relationship with my family is strengthened. And I am definitely thankful for the Gospel of Jesus Christ and definitely glad to be part of it. 

How do I deal with my stress? I love to always have positive view and thought. I do not allow any negative view from preventing me to achieve or do something. And the more spiritual you are, the less stress you will have. I have to say that this is the most spiritual time in my entire life. Be thankful for everything. Always believe that everything that happen in life is according to God's plan. We may not know why this happen to us but always remember it is for our own good. Every night when you pray, do not just thank whatever you have but also remember to take counsel or to ask opinion from God.  That's the attitude that I have :) 

Alma 37:37 - Pray every day and every night
Jacob 4:10 - Take counsel from God 

I want to leave all of you a blessing for reading Book of Mormon. You will come to know that it is as interesting as your favorite book and you will always have a positive mind and view. And overall, you will come to know that this is the only true church restored by Prophet Joseph Smith. Love you all. Remember to read :)

I love piano. I love every sound that comes out from piano but too bad I do not have the talent to play piano. 

Was again playing with effect pictures.
