Hello everyone, today was a special adventure here in Germany because I had the opportunity to visit my friends from Brasil who live here. On the way to their house, I ran in to Giselle’s sister on the bus and we had a pleasant conversation.
Then I had the opportunity to play some games with Icaro and I went roller skating with Icaro and Gleybson. We said a prayer first before I tried to get up and moving, and I was protected from hurting myself even though I ended up breaking one of the roller skates while I was using it!
I appreciated that instead of getting upset, Gleybson took a moment to think how my breaking the skate could have been a blessing. He told me that it was better that I had broken it while going slow than for it to have broken while he was trying a trick or going very fast. He also said a good way to look at a situation when it does not go our way is to think of it as, “livramento,” (being saved/ protected from something). I think this is true because our Heavenly Father is constantly watching over us and He loves us. Every day is a new opportunity to get to know our Heavenly Father better and learn to follow His spirit. After skating we played some soccer and enjoyed some spaghetti that Gisellle made and I got to meet Giselle’s daughter who was getting home from work.
It was nice to eat with their family and laugh with them. The journey had been a little long, but it had been very worth it! I then made my way back home safely!
