Mosiah "And moreover, I would desire that ye should consider on the blessed and happy state of those that keep the commandments of God.For behold, they are blessed in all things, both temporal and spiritual; and if they hold out faithful to the end they are received into heaven, that thereby theymay dwell with God in a state of never ending happiness. O remember, remember that these things are true; for the Lord God hath spoken it." I just love this scripture! haha and the funny thing is i was just on lds.org so that i could copy and paste this scripture and the talk of the week on the Home page is "Be happy, keep the commandments" by our dear Prophet Thomas S. Monson. I just want you all to know that I know because i have experienced the feeling of being truly happy and i know that it really does come from keeping the commandments. When we do the right things we are happy. It is as simple as that. Obvously its not quite as easy done than said but its possible with our Savior.
You can make the pathway bright, Fill the soul with heaven's light, If there's sunshine in your heart; Turning darkness into day, As the shadows fly away, If there's sunshine in your heart today. You can speak the gentle word To the heart with anger stirred, If there's sunshine in your heart; Tho it seems a little thing,
It will heaven's blessings bring, If there's sunshine in your heart today. You can do a kindly deed To your neighbor in his need, If there's sunshine in your heart;
And his burden you will share As you lift his load of care, If there's sunshine in your heart today. You can live a happy life In this world of toil and strife, If there's sunshine in your heart; And your soul will glow with love From the perfect Light above, If there's sunshine in your heart today. If there's sunshine in your heart,
You can send a shining ray That will turn the night to day; And your cares will all depart, If there's sunshine in your heart today." The Pathway really is bright. We have this gospel. We have a loving Heavenly Father and Savior Jesus Christ. I am thankful for all these wonderful things and people, and i am thankful to be a missionary. I am thankful for my wonderful family. I love you all so much!! I hope you have a wonderful week! Until next week. Go spread a little sunshine to the people out there that most need it, and i promise you all that if you do this your pathway will turn from 60 watts to 120 watts!! All my prayers and love always!
