I've just been so busy as of late and so caught up with school and our move and grades and trying to find time for Scott and taking time for Shuga, and trying to spend time with my friends here in Idaho before we move and trying to spend as much time as possible with my new niece, and the list goes on and on. It appears that with everything else that is going on I seem to have forgotten how to relax. Life is happening right now all around us!

But are we taking time to notice?

Are we taking time to revel in the beautiful of this world? In the beauty that is all around us?

Are we making time to breath? Time to think? Time to feel?

The sun is shining through my livingroom as I'm sitting here taking a much needed break from my chemistry homework. Scott has gone shooting with his friends and shuga is down for her afternoon nap, so the house is void of sound, except for the ticks of my keyboard as I type. It's now that I realize that I need to make time for peace,and make time for quiet and make time for God.

"Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding." Proverbs 3:5

Yesterday I had a major breakdown. I did horribly on a big chemistry test and I was also freaking out because of all of my finals and projects that are due in my other 6 classes! I ended up with a major migraine. I couldn't think or see straight and I was in so much pain that I couldn't even cry. It stressed me out even more because I had a huge group project to finish and two papers to write. And while I would not want to experience that pain again anytime soon it made me come to a realization. This being that I know that the good Lord has a plan for me. I know that when I try to do things my way without his help that he just shakes his head. I'm still trying to match my will with the Lords will. I'm trying to find direction in my life, a purpose that will give me purpose. This last year has been beyond crazy, beyond emotional descritions and one of the happiest of my life. When I put my will after the Lords will everything works out. When I put the Lord first in my life, everything either falls into place or falls out of my life. And while it's days like yesterday that make me wish that school would just fall out of my life, I know that gaining my education is so important and that it is a worthy desire.

Sorry I feel like this post was just a major vent session, but I needed to share my feelings.

On a happier note, school is over for the semester in about 10 days!!

Easter is one of my favorite holidays and not just because of all the candy and the fun Easter dresses...I love that we have a holiday to celebrate Christ. It’s a day to dress up cute, spend time with family and to remember His life, His death, His resurrection, His atonement and most of all His selflessness and love for me a sinner. I know that my Redeemer lives! What joy, peace, gratitude and reassurance this brings to me in this troubled world. I know that when I sin all is not lost but that Christ is there to help me right my wrongs. He is there to lead me by the hand! He atoned for all my sins and because of that beautiful act of mercy, He knows us all, because he atoned for all of us. He knows my joys, He knows my sorrows and He loves me just the same. He knows everyone’s pains he knows everyone’s trials because he has already born them. In this holiday season may we all turn to Christ our Savior and Redeemer and let him help us carry our crosses.

School, babies

This semester has totally flown by! It's almost over and boy am I glad! I have under a month left and it's only getting crazier! Wednesday morning I apply for my next and LAST semester of classes at BYU-Idaho. Can I get a woot woot! I'm so excited and so ready to be done here in Idaho! All my classes are going to be online and I'll be graduating with my associates in July!! And while it's not a Bachlores degree I'm still pretty proud of myself. And I'm excited to feel like I've actually accomplished something with my life in the two years since I graduated from high school.
I know this is a crappy picture but it shows my color!

Enough about me though. I'm a new aunt as of a few weeks ago! My oldest sister Alexandra had her first child. Alice Catherine French, and holy cow she's a doll. She is so beautiful and such a good baby! They had her pictures taken professionally and they turned out so good! HERE is a link to her website she does such good work! Take a peek!!

Here is one of Alice's pictures in case ya don't wanna go to her website!!
