So Thankful

Today I am just very thankful for God's hands in our lives. I am so grateful for miracles that still happen on the earth today. I am so grateful for the temple and the fact that I will get to be with Michael forever. I'm grateful for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and the strong support group and great faith of all the members. I'm grateful for the joy that the gospel brings and also the hope, the comfort, and the peace. I'm grateful for the truth that guides me each day and helps me make tough decisions. I'm grateful for all the knowledge I have, especially the knowledge I have of Christ. I know that He lives and that He loves us enough to die for each of us in hopes that we will all be able to return to live with Him again. He loves us enough to give us a prophet so that we will know what we need to do to get back to heaven. He loves us enough to know what we need at each minute in our lives, whether it seems good or bad. Christ is always mindful of us. I am grateful for the knowledge that trials in our lives are given to teach us and help us grow stronger.

Today at church I relearned a very valuable lesson. Miracles do happen. Fasting and prayers can save someone's life. God loves His children. We all have a purpose in this life.One of them is to be part of a family and families are very important. I love my family so much and am so blessed to have them in my life. I am especially grateful to be married to a very loving and amazing man. I am very grateful for my life.

This video is a great reminder to me and to all of us to "slow down a little, focus on the significant, lift up our eyes, and truly see the things that matter most." I hope you can take a few minutes to watch it :)

Summer is finally here!

We have finally had some summery adventures. We got to go to my home in Washington last week and I have lots of pictures to post. But while you wait feast your eyes on this.

This dance is amazing. If you want a little background on the story of the dance, the boy (Marko) was recently stood up at the alter and his best friend (Melanie) comes to comfort him and then he realizes he is in love with her.

Well.. TTFN!
