two years.

"And  they were  all  young  men,
and they were exceedingly valiant
for courage, and also for strength
and activity;  but behold, this was 
not all--they were men who were 
true  at  all  times  in  whatsoever
                                                            thing they were entrusted."
                                                                                          Alma 53:20

What can you do in one year? Probably a lot, right? What about two? Take, for example, those Sons of Helaman. From 64 b.c. to 62 b.c. (need I say two years) they fought for the liberty of their fathers. Determined to maintain their lands, their possessions, their wives, and their children, never doubting that God would deliver them. Not one soul was slain as they fought for freedom against the Lamanites. They were preserved as they stood fast in defense of their liberty and faith. All because their mothers taught them well.

They were very young, but look what they did. Look at the example they gave, and the bar they set. It's a pretty high bar, but I want to live up to it. Go out into the world. Preach the word of God. Live the gospel, and return with honor.

Serving a mission sounds like... the best thing EVER! I just can't wait. What can be said? My mother taught me well.

We Are Young, And We Don't Sleep!

Everything will turn out just right. He's got a plan for each of us. And with some things, you just have to say that if it isn't meant to be, then a new door will open and you'll get over any pain and be alright. But if it is meant to be, well... yahoo!! Just do your best at what you think is right. Life doesn't depend on how you want things to go. There is so much more to it. "We are young, we run free. Stay up late, we don't sleep! Got our friends, got the night, we'll be alright!" Gotta love Travie McCoy! We are young, and we've got nothing to worry about for a while. We've still got our best friend, and loads of time. There is plenty of it, and just so much to live for! And it may hurt, and sometimes it's hard to take! But that's okay, that's how it's meant to be. He's got a plan, and everything is going to be alright. (:

That Sky of Ours

Go outside, and look at the sky. It's amazing, so big, and beautiful. Why would He give us something so insanely great? It's rather insane, if I do say so myself. There is a reason they say heaven is up there. It's almost like you can see right in. I think it's gotta be in the top five creations. That and trees. I can hardly take it in. To anyone who doesn't believe, what about this? How does this just create itself? It couldn't happen without God. He is there, and thank goodness for that. I don't think we could manage without him (:
