Good Things To Come...

So, the past few weeks I've written a few blog posts, but I never end up posting them.  For some reason, everything that I write turns out to be more along the lines of a church talk, or RS Lesson - not blog-y like.  There are lots of things that I could write about and bore you with, but I'll spare you that, for now.  However, with all those things, they all come down to one thing and that is the Gospel.  So, yeah I might get a little "church talky, or RS Lesson-y" on you... so, stop reading if you must.  But, I like the Gospel so I'm going to write about it for a second.  Or, two.

I went down to Las Vegas a couple weeks ago to attend a conference that was just out of this world.  White I was there, I met SO many people from all over the states and even other countries.  Everyone was so great and it was such a great weekend, not only for my "photography motivation/love" but as well as my testimony.  Weird, I know.  

But really...

Sometimes I think it is good to get out of our comfort zones.  It can help us realize how blessed we are for what we have and who we are.  Between attending this conference, and attending the U, I have realized truly HOW grateful I am to be a member of the church.  It really does bring me so much joy and blesses my life everyday. 

It's just... REALLY GREAT!

The past couple of years for me have probably been the hardest of my life.  There have been so many things happen that aren't necessarily things I would have chose to happen.  But, they did and I've learned SO much.  And, for that I am grateful.  Through everything that has gone on and came and passed, there has been one thing that has been constant through it all.  And that is the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  There is nothing else in my life that can give me such great hope, comfort and joy no matter what else is going on.  I always know that things will be okay, even if it's really really hard.  Because, otherwise we wouldn't be here.  

Even when life is hard and you want to throw rocks at things, we/I need to remember that we are SO blessed.  We all have such great opportunities in this life, greater than ever before and we can't dwell on the hard things.  

I can't say it well, so watch this.  He says it so much better than I ever could.
