Peaceful

My mother once told me that my life is always an adventure. I feel my mother perhaps cursed me forever more. Noah and I have been doing great. We survived the summer and we were cruising along. I should have known after our lesson on Job last week that something was coming. In the Book of Mormon it says:

"For it must needs be, that there is an opposition in all things. If not so...righteousness could not be brought to pass, neither wickedness, neither holiness nor misery, neither good nor bad. Wherefore, all things must needs be a compound in one; wherefore, if it should be one body it must needs remain as dead, having no life neither death, nor corruption nor incorruption, happiness nor misery, neither sense nor insensibility." 2 Nephi 2:11

Job was tested to prove his faith and in the end he was given more than what he had. I get new carpets and a newly painted apartment, AND NO MORE SPIDERS! At least for a little while. :)

Hopefully, in a short time you will have forgotten all about the anxiety and frustration of this past week. I hope that you enjoy your new carpet and your new walls. I'm so thankful that you have such good friends.

I heart you Becky (Whipple) Coleman. I'm so sorry to hear about your recent "adventure" with the water.

Kyle and I would love to make you guys dinner; and have you meet your nephew too (that's Calvin, lol).

MUAH. We'll be sure to pray for you love.

I feel so bad for what happened! You seem to be so happy even though a lot happened to your apartment. Do you guys get new stuff too?
