Ok, super fast story.
Last night I went to dinner with one of my very best friends on the mission for her birthday. We had a great time at a cute little Mexican restaurant in Downtown Frederick. Only one problem- me and Mexican food do not in any way shape or form get along.
As we walked back to the car I felt like I was going to pass out my belly hurt so bad. We sat down for a moment on a bench and I contemplated going home for the night. Last week the same thing had happened (with chinese food) and I wound up spending the whole prime evening inside the apartment. It made the rest of the week incredibly difficult simply for the fact that my motivation to go outside and work was next to 0. Especially on the days it rained.
So I didn’t want to go inside again, but my body was telling me something different. I thought about it for another 30 minutes as we stopped by a few people we had made commitments to. None of which answered the door. As we climbed back into the car I had to make a decision on what we would do. Sister Guthrie would support me either way (bless her heart) and so it was totally up to me.
I was leaning towards going inside when I heard these words very clearly, as if someone had spoken them to me.
“Oh Ye of little faith, know ye not that I can make you whole?”
In that instant I resolved to stay out until 9 o’clock and I wasn’t going to just stay outside, I was going to work because God was working with me and with Him nothing shall be impossible. (Luke 1:37)
When we came home at 9 I felt so much joy and peace. I know that God makes those who believe in Him stronger than they ever could be on their own. I love my Heavenly Father and I love My Savior. They mean everything to me and this work means everything to them.
Also this week I went back to Braddock Heights with Sister Short! She helped me out with my aversion to my own blood when I broke a blood blister on my finger. Yeah that was tragic.
Work hard this week guys. I love you all.
Love, Sister Johnson
P.S. A recipe for rainy days when you don’t want to move, let alone get out of your bed.
some baking soda
lots of chocolate chips
1 c. Peanut Butter…or more…ok lots of peanut butter
oh and a dash of vanilla.
Add a kitten into the mix to hold while you wait for the cookies (not the kitten) to bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 9 minutes.
