New years is so different here. Nah, it´s not that different. Just that everyone shoots their guns in the air to celebrate instead of just some little fireworks. Happy you might die from a stray bullet day!!! That´s how you know that the new year will be a good one--if you stayed alive long enough to see the new year!! hahaha just kidding. It is pretty scary and we had to enter the house at seven, but all the houses are made of cement, so there is hardly any risk. More people died from driving drunk than from stray bullets.
This week I have been meditating a lot on a quote from Heber J Grant that says ¨That which we persist in doing becomes easier for us to do; not that the nature of the thing changed, but that our power to do is increased.¨ I know this year we can overcome the faults we have had the last year just by persisting in what we know to be true and trusting in Heavenly Father to help us.
I hope we can all have a wonderful new year full of one year goals, six month goals, monthly goals, weekly goals, and daily goals. This life is a life of goals, and if we are constantly trying to change and be better, we will have the spirit with us more strongly.
