Original Secret Agent

           I know what your thinking. Is that Elder Brunson or a secret agent? It's very hard to get us in the right order because of the similarities I have with a secret agent. Take James Bond for example, he always looks fresh and wears a suit. I would make the argument that I do too. I seem to be holding a gun in that picture (lets face it I'm just pretending) but James Bond has a real gun all the time. However, there are a lot of differences between me and 007, the first one is I'm not British and I don't have a license to do harm to anyone. Second, I'm serving the Lord and he is serving the Queen. Third, my morals are a little different then that of James Bond. There are a lot more characteristics that 007 has that I don't and that I have that James doesn't! Even though I look pretty convincing in this picture it is obvious that I am not 007!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            I thought of this comparison after looking at this picture of myself and reading this quote,
Who is it?
"This is what I learned: that everybody is talented, original and has something important to say." By Brenda Ueland. It's the original part that really stuck out to me, because we are all original we are one of a kind, we literally all different. Even though everywhere I go I remind someone of their brother or cousin or friend, I still know that I am an individual and no one is exactly like me and I'm not just like them. I can tell the difference between me and all those other people! What really makes everything even more impressive is that God knows each one of us........... He knows us perfectly and He knows us individually. How amazing is that? He knows your personality and He knows what you can handle and what you can't. Heavenly Father wont throw anything at you that you can't handle because he knows you and your strengths and weaknesses. So be original, be yourself, be God's child. No matter how far away you may get from Him, He will always know you and welcome you back to Him. Because where were you originally? You were with Him! So be original and live with Him here on this Earth.
