The Road You Are On Will Take You Where it Goes

"The road you are taking will take you where the road goes and nowhere else, and as a corollary, if the road you are on is not taking you where you want to end up, you need to get off that road now!" (Forever Sisters, p. 87)

Basically if you want to be healthier, you have to stay on the healthy road, which means no donuts or chips, and obey the rules of eating right and exercising :0

Happy September!
To my grandchildren; if you want to do better in school, obey the rules of that road, plan, study, do your homework, fulfill the requirements, and follow that road until it ends.

 If you want to be a more effective Zone Leader, pray, prepare and
map out your plan as you head on down that road.
 If you want to be safer, have Elder Busath install a smoke alarm and CO detector
in the little, old home where you are assigned.
 If you want to be on the road to silliness, install your "third bathroom" high overhead on the shelf in your master bedroom :)
 Leesburg Zone Leaders, Elder Forrest and Elder Harman

 If you want to be on the road to inviting the Spirit into your home, post inspiring messages to encourage and remind you of what's really important.
 Lecanto Sisters Jamison and Petersen on the road to a happier home
now that all the repairs on their long list have been completed.
 Leesburg Senior Missionaries Sister and Elder Western on the road
to super hero status in our book.
 Random, we know, but maybe Howey is a relative of "Where's Waldo"
and we did in fact see it while...on the road.
 Elder Hansen, on the road to eternal youth,  
celebrating his birthday at our last District Meeting
 Elder Busath attending an iPad class at the Apple Store in the Florida Mall,
on the road to being a techno geek.
 A beautiful baby blanket for our Shelby Mae, due in just a few weeks, made by Amber Hammock, in the Pleasant Hill Ward. On the road to being thoughtful grandparents?
 After spending the whole day on the road again in Sumterville, looking for a new home for our missionaries, with no success, we might add.  We decided that we needed a good ending to an unproductive day and purchased and assembled a new vacuum cleaner needed for the sisters assigned to the Belleview Ward.

 On the road to being more physically fit and community service minded.
On September 6, 2014 President and Sister Berry accompanied us on the annual 5K Heart Walk and Run at the University of Central Florida.

It's our P Day and we actually had the opportunity to relax and have some fun. 
Of course that was after the 5K walk, cleaning our apartment, running errands.  So we decided venture down the road to International Blvd. and go to a movie theatre in one of the malls to see "The Hundred Foot Journey" which was highly recommended.
 It was a wonderful movie and definitely worth seeing!
Last, but certainly not least, we had the privilege to attend the baptism of our neighbor Marie Duperat, and her two daughters Christy and Alicie Desire, taught by Sister T. Jensen and Sister Grosland assigned to the Hunter's Creek Ward.
In closing, we just want to assure you that there is good news as we all travel down this winding, some times hazardous  road of life...
We can avoid becoming emotionally and spiritually lost and from having to suffer the consequences of dead ends and devastating detours. There is someone who is looking out for each of us.  He is our prophet, Thomas S. Monson, seer and revelator for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.  If we are obedient and follow his counsel, we can avoid making serious mistakes and will arrive safely at our destinations.
Be safe, and thanks for stopping by!
See you later alligator...
