Our lives aren't ours to plan out. The Lord is the one making the plans and we simply choose to follow them, or take another path. Lately I've learned the importance of turning my desires into the Lords desires. I have desired to finish college, do my internship and then possibly a mission. I've wanted a boyfriend throughout all of my college experiences, but those that I date never seem to stick. With all of these things in mind, and considering some of the trials I've been through, I know that what I want isn't always going to coincide with what the Lord would have me do, even if they are righteous desires. Timing is never an issue in the Lords mind, instead He focuses on the events and things that will mold us into better sons and daughters of God. I have learned to take every day as it comes and to not plan to far into the future.

This past weekend I really developed a testimony of fasting and prayer, and I know these principles of the gospel are essential to our happiness here on earth. With fasting and prayer I have been able to be more in tune with what the Lord desires for me and the path he would have me take. How great full I am for the scriptures and inspired prophets who are helping guide us back to our Heavenly Father.

I still need to make my resume for applying to internships, and that is definitely a slow process. School is going good and I have some tests coming up pretty soon in Humanities and in my 473 Issues in Therapeutic Recreation class. I have really been enjoying the social life this semester and I've met a lot of really great people. I did date this guy for about 3 weeks and that sadly ended on Sunday. Oh well, what can u do? On Friday I get to babysit for Mark and Karen, so I'm really excited about that! Their kids are adorable! Anyways, many pictures are to come! That is, once I get my computer back! It's been at the doctors for two months now :(
