1. Ile zębów ma dentysta? )How many teeth does a dentist have?)
-Sto ma, to logiczna! (he has 100, this is logical!)
So a dental place is called a Stomatologiczna which if you break it up, makes a punny Polish joke!
2. Beczka! -Barrel! What to say when laughing. You might want to try slapping you hand you your knees or something for effect.
3. Miód na serca -honey to the heart
4. Every now and again I switch inbetween English and Polish and sometimes I say weird things or make interesting comments when chattering away with Sister Grgich. (Nothing unusual.) What I forget is that when I switch into Polish, more people are likely to understand me. I am usually too preoccupied with the happy thought that I may have cased something properly to consider the effect an unfortunate person at Piotr i Paweł might have when a scattered Canadian girl is chattering away when all of the sudden they hear:
I think I am going to be a little better about thinking before speaking. I think there is a reason Heavenly Father wanted me to learn Polish, less speaking and less awkward remarks!
-when the sister's in Gdańsk go bowling (watch out! This is also our approach to missionary work.)
-on our way to Poznań! We had zone-training. "Early morning trains are our favorite!" -said no one ever
Matthew 13: 45-46 (Bible)
"Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls. Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it."
Jacob 2: 18 (Book of Mormon)
"But before ye seek for riches, seek ye first the kingdom of God."
After we do this, we will be richly blessed both in temporal and in spiritual thigns. I know that as we prioritize the Lord in our lives and commit to living righteously, he will bless us according to our needs. We will want for nothing more as our lives will feel filled up, to the rim of the glass. Remember when you were a kid and tried to put in as much milk as you could before spilling? Our Heavenly Father wants to do the same.Let him bless you, invite him into your lives. The merchant man recognized and understood the worth of the gosel in his life and gave all that he had.
Have a great week, Sister Young
