a scripture, a couple pictures

And now I would that ye should be humble, and be submissive and gentle; easy to be entreated; full of patience and long-suffering; being temperate in all things; being diligent in keeping the commandments of God at all times; asking for whatsoever things ye stand in need, both spiritual and temporal; always returning thanks unto God for whatsoever things ye do receive.

(Alma 7:23)
I love that everything in this scripture are things we become and create little by little, one tiny action at a time.


District Meeting! We made a ton of chicken and potatoes and had a feast. We kept making the elders eat more so we would have less to take home. Good old Foote woman techniques employed here: "Elder, there's just three left, you eat one and then we'll have the other elders eat the others." "Elder, there's just one left, you can do it." Ha they finished it off.

Me and Soeur Vidal eating kebabs! We're in France (the land of baguettes, escargot, mushrooms, pastries, etc etc etc) and yet we find ourselves eating kebabs. They're just so dang good.

We ate Gallete de Roi (King Cake). Apparently a couple weeks after Christmas (today actually) is the day they celebrate the Three Kings coming to give gifts to Jesus. There's a special cakes (flaky and almondy and really good) and everyone gets a piece and hidden in the cake somewhere is a feve (little porcelain baby or knick-knack of sorts) and whoever gets the feve gets to be king (hence the crowns).
