"Wherefore, be of good cheer and do not fear, for I the Lord am with you, and will stand by you.."
"Some church members may feel weighed down with discouragement about the circumstances of their personal lives, even when they are making sustained and admirable efforts. Frequently, these feelings of self-disappointment come not from wrongdoing, but from stresses and troubles for which we may not be fully to blame. The Atonement of Jesus Christ applies to these experiences because it applies to all of life. The Savior CAN wipe away ALL of our tears, after all we can do...
The Savior's atonement is.. the healing power not only for sin, it's not just for sinners."
The GOOD thing about bad days are that the good days are SO much better.
Friday night was such a fun night. Tara and I got a Jamba Juice, watched 17 again with my man, Zac Efron..(yes, i took pictures of him during the movie) ha. THEN we danced and played in the rain in the MIDDLE of the street and sang to kenny's "There's Something Sexy About The Rain"
We went back to my place to make headbands.. my cute cousin, Jacqueline joined us! She's such a fun and creative girl! We had pazookies and went to bed at twelve.. we were tired.
Today was awesome! My first Saturday not having school! SO nice! I left my place at 8:30 a.m. to meet my friend Stephanie to go to the Salt Lake City Temple.. On my way to Salt Lake it started POURING rain.. I kept praying.. The visibility was so bad. . then after it stopped I was in construction traffic for an HOUR. Lets just say I was tempted to just go home.. but driving 2 hours for the temple was worth it. I love the feeling in the temple. It's so peaceful and I feel Heavenly Father so close. Sometimes I wish I could just live in the temple. I never want to leave. I'm so grateful for the priesthood and for the gospel, I just LOVE everything about it.
Tonight I went out with Scotty. We had dinner at my fav fav fav-- carrabas! We caught up with eachother's lives, almost climbed a tree, laughed our heads off at Provo's comedy sportz improv. The guy sitting next to Scott had red hair and told him that he was lucky to be in between two redheads, or something like that.. It was funny. During the show one of the comedians took their shirt off to try to be funny .. they punished him and then played "choose the right". Oh how i love Provo. We then stopped at Sonic and said hi to our friend Steve (He doesn't even know we are friends with him) but who cares, we enjoy visiting sonic to ask him questions.. he says very funny things, is VERY random, different and makes conversations entertaining. It was a fun night. I'm lucky to have Scotty as my friend.
BAH! I miss my family like crazy. I had such a fun time with them in Vegas.
Favorite text this week from my Dad: "News Flash, Your Dad loves you more than life itself." He also told me that he loves me more than mint chocolate chip ice cream.. that's ALOT.
I got a picture of my Mom with her rockin the peace sign. She will always be young at heart!
