I'm no longer sick, I think the scare from my branch president saying if I'm not getting better in the next week we're gonna have to have a serious talk and might have to temporarily send you home to get better, I think that kind of scared my body into getting rid of the sickness.... I only have a small cough and just really low on energy..... so i'm a lot better but just so drained.
I'm learning so much how to be more Christ like and learning the true core of the gospel which is truly "love one another" every aspect of the gospel in some way points to god or Jesus showing their love for us, or ways in which we can better love those around us. If we could just perfectly love everyone around us we would have a perfected Zion! If you don't believe it try and think of one aspect of the gospel which doesn't either display gods love for us or help us better love those around us, and tell me cause I am yet to find one!
In our lives we should never count days we should make the days count! we should never wait around for tomorrow to come around we should make the best of this day! I am the worlds greatest procrastinator and always counted the days rather then making the days count. we should not say tomorrow I will start or tomorrow i will repent, i always used to say tomorrow I will start reading the book of Mormon or tomorrow I will do that chore. Henry B Eyring taught choose ye this day this is also found in the scriptures this teaching.Its so easy to put things off especially when they are hard things or things you don't want to do but we even procrastinate the simple things, if we choose this day we will be blessed.
Another cool thing I have learned is: repentance is not easy it goes against everything in the natural man but the natural man is an enemy to god and has been since the fall of Adam and will be forever unless he yields to the enticing's of the holy spirit.(I don't have my scriptures so I'm reciting that from memory it might be slightly out but you get the gist ) yes repentance isn't easy, the atonement wasn't easy, it never was it never came at a cheap price it took the innocent blood of the only perfect man to walk this earth.
Count your many blessings name them one by one and it will surprise you what the lord has done.
Miss you :) Love you :)
