epi-fany?


epiphany.... that word is pretty funny - i get a few of those every so often. this week has been CrAzY and I am so happy that is over...but here's the catch....

-When life gets so busy, I always find a million other things that I would rather do then the things I need to be doing. Then, when days like today roll around....all I want to do it sit and think. But all I've been doing is thinking!!!!! Why is that?

-Also, on a more subtle note, sometimes I get a little of out wack with balance. Sometimes I like to think about how life really works. What should I do? Service instead of studying? Or study instead of playing wife :) Its really interesting. Somedays I do better than other and can maintain that balance.
Overall, I finally came to this conclusion. Its not how many acts of service that you do that gets you into the Celestial Kingdom, nor is it how good your grades are, etc, that gets you there either. Its the process of doing both that qualifies you to be the person that the Lord wants you to become, as you listen to His guidance while doing the activities that He places in your life.

It seems so interesting to me that we re-learn the gospel over and over again, just in new ways each time. Something strikes a different chord each time-I like this process...I'm just starting to get used to it.

Now to sit here and think of what to do next...enjoy your weekend!!!!
