Luckily, General Conference was this weekend...so I had 8 filled hours to help take my mind off of Mike being gone. While in the spiritual state of mind, I decided to watch The Testament (movie about people in Americas during Christ's life, Christ appearing to Americas after resurrection
Now, I have to go into detail about me watching The Testaments. I am sitting here in my house, by myself, and I am crying my eyes out at multiple parts in the movie (when they show Christ's death, and when Jesus appears to the people in the Americas). I felt a little silly doing this by myself...but, it was quite the contemplative, spiritual and thought-provoking weekend as I had just watched 8 hours of conference and then this movie.
Is it just me, or do you like crying? haha, well, not necessarily crying but being in situations where you feel the awe, amazement, gratitude, and your emotions overwhelm you. As a teenager, I used to look forward to these intense spiritual and uplifting situations like Youth Conference, Girls Camp, weddings etc. I actually tried campaigning for a calling in Young Women's JUST to attend things like these during the summer. It just feels good to get emotional sometimes...it must just be because I'm a girl.
So, I'd just like to take a moment to express my feelings tonight. I am so grateful for my knowledge of the restoration of the gospel of Jesus Christ in these days. Jesus Christ is our Savior. He lives. I know we have a prophet on the earth, Thomas Monson. I sustain him and I feel so blessed that God's voice can be and IS heard today. He speaks now, not just a long time ago. My heart is full right now for my family. I have the most wonderful parents that have taught me to love, have a testimony and true knowledge of who I am: a child of God. My brothers and sisters are my most favorite people in the world. There is no better feeling than being with my family and just laughing and enjoying each other. My husband Mike is everything to me. As we come up on 3 years of marriage...my love for him only grows. Each day he becomes more precious to me. It's amazing how the heart grows and expands in love. There is no cap on love and right now, I feel such immense love for all these people in my life.
Wow, that's my girlie, emotional blog post. haha. The end.
