A Whole New Me...


I can't explain how I feel. It's calm, anxious, excited. Maybe that qualifies me as crazy...I'm okay with that.

January 9th I found myself moving to Salt Lake City, Utah

and since then it's been a jouney. Only one month has passed and I'm finding a whole new me. I want different things for myself and I find the good Lord close and His tender mercies pooring out upon me. Yet I find opposition on all sides and the advisary doesn't seem to let up. And finding peace within seems so far away. I don't think I've been this confused since my mission. With a roller coster of emotions prozac seems to be an anwser lol. Yet I know that this move was the best thing for me; as was the mission.

I have found good people here they are so wonderful and full of life. And I'm glad that good friends are only a phone call away. Blessed with friends and family and the word or God...what more could I ask for. Life is interesting and I wonder what the Lord has in mind for me sometimes.

I have had that crazy feeling before, it always happens right before the adventure of a life time. Good luck with all that, adn remeber to live it up, b/c someday you wil lbe married with kids and you will look back and want to know that you lived life to its fullest. (caue I am there right now well not with kids yet...)

It was wonderful talking with you the other night! I miss you but I also know this is something that is good for you right now. I am so happy you are meeting new people and have a place of your own. How exciting is that? And you get to be in snowy weather again! Hopefully we can pay you a visit in the near future. Love you lots!!

The Lord has so many wonderful things in store for you! I remember feeling the way you are numerous times when I was on my own up there in Utah. Sometimes I felt as if I was in a car and the Lord was driving. Stay close to him like you are doing. He will guide you to where and what you should be doing. I found early morning prayer and scripture study a time when I could just allow the Lord to tell me what I needed to do. Sound familiar? (the things I learned from my mission are still helping me). The spirit will guide you. I miss you and am excited for what is in store for you.

My first time on a blog! I am so cool now. It's wonderful that you have started a new adventure...Fifer girls are not content unless we are learning and living...even if it scares us to death. Odd for us though since we are all so entirely opposed to change. Which is why we need to give each new endeavor at least 6 months before an opinion is made. I am only a couple states away s if you need me, just give me a ring. And a few days notice so the I dont get arrested for going AWOL after making a bee line to your location. Love you!
