I have so many beautiful pictures of birds and flowers here in Nauvoo. I thought I’d turn a “new leaf” and start posting more often in 2016. It is always very busy here in #historicNauvoo as a missionary, and this blog has always been the last on my list. I have been taking photos all year long and would like to share more of them with all of you.
Cardinals hold a special magic for this western girl who has never seen them before. They dominate the bird feeder outside my window, unless Mr. Squirrel comes by, then they have to wait patiently for their turn. Also pictured are Woodpeckers and tiny grey Tittle-mouse.
These are the spring flowers from last year. Nice to look at a little color in anticipation of their blooms in just a few months. Finally, It wouldn’t be a Nauvoo Mission Blog without a picture of the Temple. We attend every Tuesday evening with our cast. It’s such a pleasure to be inside, and share the peace and quiet with those we serve with everyday. As missionaries in Nauvoo, we really grow close during the winter. There are also pictures of the beautiful murals inside, the stained glass and the spiral staircase.
Our purpose as missionaries is to invite others to come unto Christ by helping them receive the restored gospel through faith in Jesus Christ and his Atonement, repentance, baptism, receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost, and enduring to the end. Our job is easy when God’s creations abound around us and testify of Him daily. His love for each one of us, no matter what our circumstance, is evident.
