New Meaning to a Primary Song
This week I reached 215 pounds on the scale, which means MyFitnessPal will no longer let me eat anything less than 1500 calories each day. I have now switched to a 1750 calorie diet. It feels good to have accomplished this.
I realized this week that I have brought new meaning to the Primary hymn, “I Hope They Call Me On A Mission.” Instead of I hope that they call me on a mission when I have grown a foot or two, for me it’s I hope they call me on a mission when I have shrunk a foot or two.
I have really been making sure I have plenty of time to study now. It’s kind of crunch time. I have been reading the scriptures and Preach My Gospel every day. It’s not that I haven’t been reading the scriptures every day before, but I’ve been focusing my study on scripture passages included in Preach My Gospel.
It’s so nice to have all my shopping done for my mission. It feels like a burden has been taken off my shoulders. I am counting down the days until I enter the MTC. I won’t be needing to buy as much food the next few weeks. I’m pretty much set on that.
This past Thursday I had the opportunity to meet Elder Russell M. Nelson. He is doing remarkably well for a ninety year old. He was whistling and it looks as if he walks like he is sixty years old.
Today I have done my laundry, got my groceries and am at the organ recital of Linda Margetts. It’s an eclectic mix of music, a Sousa March, some hymns, and baroque music.
