lo que pasa, pasa


Since my last post, I started and quit a second job, I had a mission reunion, found out my mission president is moving to Peru because of his new church assignment, my youngest brother came home from his mission, I got a haircut, and I found time to clean and reorganize my bedroom.

You know sometimes things just get all mushed together. For me the last several months have been mushed. I've been really busy that I just didn't really have time to sit and think, let alone play catch up on my blog. I can look back tho, and even in this last little while I can see the hand of God in my life. He has led me to be where I am...and is teaching me daily.

I've been listening in my car to Jesus the Christ on c.d. I just finished yesterday. I have learned more about my Savior, and the feelings of peace and joy I got everyday because of it has helped me make it through some really long days. I know that Christ is my savior. I know that I have a purpose, and as I slow down enough to meditate and listen that I am led and guided. I am taught and inspired.

This last conference was really something special for me. I took the time to stop and listen. I have loved and listened to conference before, but I think for the first time I listened with the specific desire to know and feel of God's love for me, and I felt it! I received some direction and answer to some of my prayers. I'm not always a good person. I have my faults weaknesses and shortcomings... and I tend to be slow to remember God. But I know I can change. I want to change, and with my Savior and His continuous, and infinite atonement I can change. I can be better, and I want to be better. I am grateful for the atonement in my life. For the love of God, and for His servants the prophets who He has sent to guide us.

I have the best family in the WHOLE world. (including extended family) I have been very blessed. It was nice to have some time off and spend time with my family this past week. Michael coming home was a wonderful excuse!!! You know he's the same kid, but there is definitely something more mature and grown up about him. He has done some serious growing these last two years. I'm proud of him. It takes a lot to go on a mission, and stay there!!! ha ha! I'm glad that I was able to serve a mission, if only to appreciate that fact even more!

My sister's are all at home right now... although I'd love to convince them to live even closer to me, it is nice that they are as close as they are, and I get to see them more often. It's good for my mom (I think) to have them all at home right now. This will probably be the last time she has as many kids (although they are all grown-ups) at home. I know I probably wont ever live at home again, although I've entertained that idea...but only for a few seconds. It's Probably for the best. I'm actually friends with my mom now. Yep! I don't want to ruin if I don't move home!

Well, now that I have more time on my hands, and am becoming a baker/pastry chef, once my work schedule is all figured out I will have time to make and keep some friends! That will be nice. I now have time to be more involved with church activities, and am available to serve!!! YIPPY! More time to make myself happy!
