The Journey to Freedom

The Journey to Freedom

Monday, October 6, 2014

Missions require sacrifice.  We sacrifice family time, experiences, events and relationships which is the hardest sacrifice of all.  Your way of life and your comfort zone is sacrificed.  In our case it will require sacrificing some of the material things we have come to enjoy. We will now have to live on a budget, Ouch.  It requires sacrificing things. Today we turned the Subaru over to Duane wrecking yard.  He will give it to someone in need or piece it out.  It has no value but it is the last hold Elder Anthony has to his father who passed away in 2009.  The Subaru became the joke of the family.  It was always faithful.  I think we only had to take it in a twice for repairs.  You could drive it anywhere with no concerns of it being beaten up because you would not have been able to tell it it had.  It was great to park at BYU in their narrow parking spaces.  One day Elder Anthony called to tell me someone had dented the car.  I asked him how he could tell?  He said this dent was not here before. It was always faithful and it ran great in the snow.  I loved it on snowy days.  We are now down to one car and having to share.



It may be a good thing to get rid of our junk in life so we know what is of real value.

  2. We have been pruning steadily ever since returning. The less we have the lighter and better we feel. Sacrifices are really a blessing!
