Hey y'all!

How's your week? What's the news?

The weeks here sure do fly by, but the days are slow, hot, and rainy. But we're hanging in there and loving it. So I just wanted to share a few things that I learned this week that I loved. 

Our mission president shared with us this week about fig trees. Fig trees first grow fruit, then they grow leaves. Sometimes though, fig trees will put out leaves even though they have no fruit. He taught us a great lesson about hypocrisy and competition. We can't put out leaves if we have no fruit, even if all the other trees have bloomed. Our time will come, we just have to accept the time of the gardener.

This week in relief society we had a fantastic lesson based off of the General Conference talk "Your Four Minutes". It's one of my favorites. The woman teaching said something simple, yet profound. She said, "Later means maybe never". Which is so true. How often do we say that we'll just do it later and it never happens? There should be less later and more now in our lives. For time really does slip by at a rapid pace.

Have a great week. Love you all!
