LIGHT

    I have mentioned in earlier blogs about a wonderful Senior couple that were in our District at the MTC.  The Jenkins are the Self Reliance Missionaries for our mission.  They work very hard and travel many kilometres to present the church's Self Reliance Program to interested parties.  They seem to be at one end of New South Wales or the other end.  Along with the many miles or "K's" they travel they see some pretty amazing sites and Sister Jenkins is a good photographer as well.
    Since Elder Ellison and I stay put in the office, I like to borrow some other missionaries travelling photographs.  Isn't this sunset just stunning?  I love looking at it.

 Another interesting picture and thought from Sister Jenkins follows below.


We stopped to take a picture. After I had taken the picture I realized the sun was almost ready to give its golden glow that comes just before dusk. So, I waited a few moments for that glow and then took a second picture. 
After I saw what I had taken I realized that there was an object lesson in the contrasting pictures. 

The first one, although I like it a lot, is in contrast to the second photo which is bathed in light. I realize that our lives are like that. We can live our lives doing things  "our own way" or we can live our lives doing as the Savior has asked and be bathed in His light.

It is my hope and prayer that any of you reading this will desire to know the way to return to our Father in Heaven with your families. I  just cannot imagine Eternity without my family!


I feel like Sister Jenkins.  
As we have been anxiously awaiting part of our family to come visit us in Australia, my excitement to see them is beyond measure.  

How great will our Joy be when ALL our family will be reunited together again?
