"i stand all amazed

at the love Jesus offers me
confused at the grace that so fully he proffers me
i tremble to know that for me he was crucified
that for me, a sinner, he suffered, he bled and died
oh, it is wonderful that he should care for me enough
to die for me

i marvel that he would descend from his throne divine
to rescue a soul so rebellious and proud as mine
that he should extend his great love unto such as I
sufficient to own, to redeem and to justifys

i think of his hands, pierced and bleeding to pay my debt
such mercy, such love and devotion can I forget?
no, no, I will praise and adore at the mercy seat
until at the glorified throne I kneel at his feet

i stand all amazed at the love Jesus offers me
secure in the promise of life in his victory
thus ransomed from death I will live to my Savior's praise
and sing of his goodness and mercy through endless days
oh, it is wonderful, wonderful to me."
my heart is SO full.
today was such a good sabbath.i'm so grateful for this gospel. i honestly am amazed that through the atonement you can feel christ literally heal your heart. when things get so hard you can know that he has felt exactly the way you are feeling. i love that. i love the church and i love my life. I am loving my new ward. they haven't even called my name as a new member from the pulpit yet.. so i was not expecting this but.. i was called and sustained today to be 2nd counselor in the relief society. when i was called I got teary eyed. i feel i've been preparing this year for a calling like this. i feel this is where I should be serving. i'm so grateful that the lord called me. i can't wait to learn about and from these amazing women. i'm so content with my life right now. for the first time in a long time i'm not interested in any one and i'm just happy being single. i'm loving time with my friends and family. i'm trying to live life to the fullest and have faith in the lords timing. yay for a new week of job searching and loving the warmth of arizona.

Relief Society is a perfect calling for you! You have so much to offer. Megan is the RS Secratary and just loves being with the sisters in her ward. She gets lots of missionary opportunities. You will just love your new calling! I was thinking of you in RS- just yesterday! I was listening to the lesson thinking about how you taught such great FHE lessons and that you would be so perfect teaching RS. As a member of the RS presidency, you'll get your chance to teach...I only wish I was there to hear! Love you.
