I normally don't post until I have some sort of picture to go along with it. But since I am having the blog put to print it helps to serve as a type of journal as well. I can't help but think about how blessed I am to have the Gospel in my life. With how crazy the world has been just this week I feel such strength that comes from having such a deep root of faith. First the bombing at the Boston Marathon and the explosion at the Texas Power plant. Now I read about the huge earthquake in China that has destroyed so many lives or changed them forever. And while the world seems to be running around with it's head cut off trying to figure things out I feel totally and utterly at peace. Which if you know me is so unusual. After Danni was born I had some life changing experiences that strengthened my faith and testimony of the Gospel. I know that God is in control of this crazy world and that if I do all I can to live up to my side of the deal He will carry the rest on His shoulders. What a great deal huh? And deleting my Facebook account has been the best thing I could have done. Not only do I have more time with the kids but I find that I don't stress about life anymore. I don't have to worry about hundreds of other people's lives and just concentrate on my own.
My prayers do go out to all the people who have been affected by all the turmoil that is going on. I know that we are being watched after and loved as we strive to do all we can. And to end on an up note this morning I ran 9 miles with my running group. I didn't plan on running that far but I felt amazing and I am so glad that my endurance is slowly coming back to me. That half should be easy by the end of August.
The home stretch
