weeks just FLY by around here.
I TA every morning then I work at Avenia during the day and usually hang out with my friends/family in the evening. I love it! But I don't have much ME time. Sometimes I wish I could just freeze time....Today is a good day though-it's my day off so I am going to enjoy the peacefulness of having no set schedule and being able to do anything I want.
a few updates:
Bain and mom are in NYC... WITHOUT ME. I am sad! I called yesterday to hear "guess where I am right now!"........ Answer-Shake Shack.. SUPER jealous. Bain competed her Outstanding Dancer solo today and I heard it went AMAZINGLY well! Bain sent me a text saying "It felt freaking unreal gurl!" haha and my mom said "Her solo was awesome and her costume is fierce" Bain will be dancing practically 24/7 until she comes home next Friday.
Katie may or may not have come into Avenia yesterday to try on wedding gowns.... and she may or may not have chosen the one that I had picked out for her since March. I know my lovely Katie SO well. SHE IS GORGEOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! times 1,000!
Tay and I are now on season 2 of Prison Break. SO good!!!! We also tested out his front porch swing on Monday when the weather was SO nice out and it was amazing-I love summer nights.
Be sure to check out Avenia's blog!!! I just posted about a bride name Haley who married her EFY crush after he returned from his mission. Cute story!
Spiritual Thought: Mosiah 4-7 (AMAZING chapters)
2: 'They had viewed themselves in their own carnal state, even less than the dust of the earth...they cried aloud with one voice, saying "O have mercy, and apply the atoning blood of Christ that we may receive forgiveness of our sins, and our hearts may be purified; for we believe in Jesus Christ, the Son of God, who created heaven and earth, and all things; who shall come down among the children of men."' 3: '...the Spirit of the Lord came upon them, and they were filled with joy, having received a remission of their sins, and having peace of conscience because of the exceeding faith which they had in Jesus Christ.."
6: 'If you have come to a knowledge of the goodness of God, and his matchless power, and his wisdom, and his patience, and his long-suffering towards the children of men; and also, the atonement which has been prepared from the foundation of the world, that thereby salvation might come to him that should put his trust in the Lord, and should be diligent in keeping the commandments and continue in the faith even unto the end of his life, I mean the life of the mortal body...7: this is the man who receives salvation...8: neither are there any conditions whereby man can be saved except the conditions which I have told you.'
9: 'Believe in God; believe that he is, and that he created all things, both in heaven and in earth; believe that he has all wisdom, and all power, both in heaven and in earth; believe that man doth not comprehend all the things which the Lord can comprehend. 10: ..believe that ye must repent of your sins and forsake them, and humble yourselves before God; and ask in sincerity of heart that he would forgive you; and now, if you believe all these things see that ye do them. 11:...remember, and always retain in remembrance, the greatness of God, and your own nothingness, and his goodness and long-suffering towards you, unworthy creatures, and humble yourselves even in the depths of humility , calling on the name of the Lord daily, and standing steadfastly in the faith of that which is to come... 12:..If ye do this ye shall always rejoice and be filled with the love of God and ye shall grow in the knowledge of the glory of him that created you, or in the knowledge of that which is just and true.'
20: 'He has poured out his Spirit upon you, and has caused that your hearts should be filled with joy, and has caused that your mouths should be stopped that ye could not find utterance, so exceedingly great was your joy. 21: ..if God, who has created you, on whom you are dependent for your lives and for all that ye have and are, doth grant unto you whatsoever ye ask that is right, in faith, believing that ye shall receive, O then, how ye ought to impart of the substance that ye have one to another.'
5:7 'And now, because of the covenant which ye have made ye shall be called the children of Christ, his sons and his daughters; for behold, this day he hath spiritually begotten you; for ye say that your hearts are changed through faith on his name; therefore, ye are born of him and have become his sons and his daughters. 15: I would that ye should be steadfast and immovable, always abounding in good works, that Christ, the Lord God Omnipotent, may seal you his, that you may be brought to heaven , that you may have everlasting salvation and eternal life, through the wisdom, and power, and justice and mercy of him who created all things, in heaven and in earth, who is God above all.'
7:33 'If ye will turn to the Lord with full purpose of heart, and put your trust in him, and serve him with all diligence of mind, if ye do this, he will, according to his own will and pleasure, deliver you out of bondage.'
I am going to try and be better at having more spiritual thoughts on here because I think they are important and that they are a beautiful reminder of where we came from and where we should be going.
AND here is one of my FAVORITE songs paired with AMAZING choreography... it is simply stunning.
