Yep. I ran out of puns.Picture number one: We were doing service for a member, helping her build her chicken coop, and we found this poor guy... I guess he's pretty holy, right?? He seemed pretty dehydrated. I don't think that it was pretty good for his health. ;)
Lehi's dream of the tree of life contained in 1 Nephi 8. But, I'll be going to when Nephi has the same vision (including the interpretation) as found in 1 Nephi 11. When Nephi is shown the tree of life and is asked what he desires, he responds in verse 11 that he wants to know the interpretation. That being said, if there are no coincidences (and there aren't!) why, in verses 12-21, would Nephi be shown the Christmas story?? Simple- what is the love of God the Father?? Go to John 3:16-17. THAT is why Nephi was shown the Christmas Story, why we invite people to come to Christ. Because God sent His son for us because HE LOVES US. Don't ever forget it!
Te whanaunga mo ake tonu!!
