We were driving into eureka on a Tuesday night
The snow was coming down it was a miserable sight
It took us 2 hours to go 60 miles
But my companion and I still wore a great big smile
I thought to myself, why is this so?
Why are we smiling and happy when it was so bitter cold
I thought well it could have been that dinner we just ate
All that Italian food on those fancy plates
Or was it because our training meeting was done
And we knew that we could enjoy some fun
Or was it because in my studies
I could answer a question for my buddy
Then I thought back to Sunday what a way to start the week
It was nice to go to church and strengthen my testimony when it was so weak
Or was I happy to teach some people and by away from home
Living and spreading the gospel in Montana, being able to roam
Maybe it was because I worked out so early
Even if you add up all the min I workout they equal thirty
Then I ponder on all the tuff rules I have to obey
Getting up at 6:30 and studying most of the day
Then spending time talking to people who think I am crazy
Because I am not indoors watching tv and being lazy.
They ask me what has gotten into you, why do you like to boast?
I simply answer, I’m inviting you to listen to the Holy Ghost.
Then a light bulb flickered on inside my simple brain
I know why we were happy and glad we weren’t going insane.
Obedience to the gospel we live it all the time.
The lord blesses our family’s and that is what eased our minds.
I reminisced about all the letter I got from my kin
To here they were doing great it brought joy from with in
I knew if we were righteous in this Zion land
God would help us prosper with his loving hand
It was a promise he gave to a prophet’s way back in the day
He even gave his beloved son to pave us a righteous way
So all we have to do is follow his loving rules
And heavenly father will give us all the tools.
I challenge all who ready this to live up to their best
Heavenly father won’t give us rules if we can’t follow them like the rest.
