Dear everyone,Well, I don't know that I have much to talk about this week. My Birthday was nice. =) Word got out to the members (somehow) that it was and I got like 3 cakes. That was nice. We worked our tails off and had much success in finding. We're going to try to collect that harvest this week.
We met a cool couple this week. The wife is a less-active member and the husband knows nothing of the church. However, they came to church and he liked it. We sat with him and he was very kind and charming. The wife wants to come back to church and live the Gospel. I'm excited to see how they do in the coming week.
So, I'm 21 now and I've noticed something simple: I'm not really any different than I was 3 days ago. It's a simple statement, but it's true. I'm now a "full adult" by age. But so what? Does that matter? These are questions I've been asking myself. Do I need to now suddenly give up the things of "childhood" which made me smile? My super heroes, silly board games, fantasy novels, or light-hearted jokings? Is full adult life all serious and all responsibility? Is it less-than-respectable to love the things you've always loved? We'd all say "no", I think. I've been thinking a little bit about this and I've realized that who we are doesn't change with age. Interests can. As can ideas, beliefs, etc. But who we are is something greater than that. So, if I happen to be a bit of a kid at heart, so be it. =) I've come to the conclusion that a person can be balanced in all things and mature and responsible and still enjoy watching Disney movies with their nieces and nephews.
