Hows it going? I'm sending you some pictures of my horse that I bought. She is kinda small but then again she's "billin" - (brazilian) so that might be why she is so small. She is about 9 years old and I bought her for 500R$ about $265 US Dollars and that's the story of the horse.
Well, there's more,
There was a family of 4 that was going to get baptized and there was a member that said that he would buy the horse just so the family could move to another city but the member decided to not buy it at the last second even though he said that he would buy it no matter what. So the father of the family felt deceived and was like...this is how members are in this church? They have been investigating the church for some time now and the mother and the 2 kids really love the church a ton so i decided to buy the horse and I did. Now there is a brother here selling it for me.
So, we´ll see if I get the money back.
The family was realy cool. I really hope they stay firm.
I would also like to share with you a quote that has helped me get through adversities in my life. I first heard this while doing sprawl drills at wrestling practice coach Lou told us that if we could tell him who said the quote we could stop. The quote is:
“Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs even though checkered by failure, than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much because they live in the gray twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat.”
This quote is by Theodore Roosevelt but at the time none of us knew that so we got to continue conditioning. I have come to realize that this quote means to me that if we don’t try and if we don’t have adversity then we will live in the gray twilight without doing mighty things we cannot win glory without this test and the adversity that comes along with it we cannot gain eternal glory. Adam and Eve learned that by partaking of the fruit they would experience pain and adversity but through this pain they would gain joy and glory. And that through this we can receive Gods greatest gift of Eternal Life that we may live in the presence of God.
