Letter #43

Well hello again family,

It was really good seeing you all yesterday and hearing how you are all doing. I was actually not that surprised to open up my email and to see the long email that mum sent even though I just talked to you all yesterday.  It was good to see you all and to talk to you for the little time that it was.  I really don't have anything to say because I think it was all covered yesterday.  I hope that you all have a great week and before I go I will have to give you another quote for the week to keep you all going strong.

“We see ourselves in terms of yesterday and today.  Our Heavenly Father sees us in terms of what we can become.  Although we might settle for less, Heavenly Father won't for He sees us as the people we are capable of becoming."
- Joseph B Wirthlin

I was told by one of the members yesterday that on his mission one of the general authorities said that if you could see the people behind the doors when you go tracting and what they can become if they were to accept the gospel then you would run from door to door.  I believe that is how Heavenly Father sees us.  He knows what we can become if we were to do certain things in our life. Even though we have the gospel in our lives already just think of what God can see in us if we were to do all that we could to live the gospel fully.  There is always something that we can improve on each and every day.  Sometimes we have to look hard for it and sometimes we can see it quite plainly.  I would like to encourage you all to find something this week that you can maybe do a little better at whether it be reading your scriptures more frequently, being a little more diligent in your calling, finding more ways to serve, or whatever it may be and try to improve in it.  I know that as you do these things you will be able to improve on them you will become closer to your Heavenly Father.

Well I hope that you all have a great week and keep being the great family that you are.
Elder Peterson
