Simeon Stays in Decatur

A beautiful double rainbow
Well, the good news is I will be staying in Decatur for another transfer! I am happy with that. My bro is right! Why is everyone talking about Christmas already? It's only November.  Whatever happened to Thanksgiving? Well, I hope this little confusion is cleared up ASAP!

This week we spent just outside finding and that is really all we did.  We hit the paves and the roads very early and just went to work even in the rain or cold and despite me spraining my ankle last Monday while playing soccer, I limped around just fine. I will say it was well worth it and though I know Sister Sappington will probably be a little upset because I did not tell her I know she will forgive me.

Now I have two hurt legs so I am ordered to rest both of them. If no one has guessed, as yet, that may not happen with me always wanting to be out working so I will have to make plans here. The rains have continued to fall here quite a bit and it has gotten a little colder, so I am on the lookout for anything that looks white and falls from the sky. We had an awesome trunk-or-treat but sadly I forgot to carry my camera so no pictures. It was freezing cold so I was more than happy to collect candy and even had to sing for some, too, which was awesome! And though this week has been nothing but running here, there and everywhere it turned out just fine.

A funny sign at the end of Daylight Saving Time
This week during personal studies I came across a familiar scripture I know very well. It was strange how this time around something just stuck out more in Mosiah 3:19 which teaches “For the natural man is an enemy to God, and has been from the fall of Adam, and will be, forever and ever, unless he yields to the enticings of the Holy Spirit, andputteth off the natural man and becometh a saint through the atonement of Christ the Lord, and becometh as a child,submissive, meek, humble, patient, full of love, willing to submit to all things which the Lord seeth fit to inflict upon him, even as a child doth submit to his father.”

Noah's Ark got moved
The most important part I saw was yielding to the enticings of the Holy Spirit because sometimes we think we know it all but we do not.  If anything the Holy Spirit is there to help us always follow those things the Lord needs us to do which is wonderful. I hope we all yield to the promptings we receive … even the smallest one.

So, a story to finish up. This Saturday daylight savings ended. I rejoiced and shouted for joy and by total accident woke my companions up at 4:30 am instead of 5:30 am. Yep, they were mad but those are the joys of missionary work.
