An update and much busyness

Hey internet friends! Is busyness even a word?

Turns out graduating high school doesn't mean you suddenly have free time. I have a job. Grad parties take a lot of work. I didn't realize I would have to take college placement tests. There is much cleaning of my room to be done in prep for moving out. There are many thank-you cards to be written for grad party gifts. Orientation is coming up fast, and so are all the things I have to do before going. And I'm not even close to moving in yet!

So I would like to apologize for being absent from the blogging world. Not only have I not been posting, I probably haven't read any posts by my fellow bloggers. I'll try to get to that soon, but my life is kinda hectic at the moment :) It's like life just keeps getting busier. I should probably get used to it and kick my procrastination habit.....

Update on me taking the missionary discussions:
The second one still hasn't happened. I haven't had time to talk to my dad about what time might work for both of us. He wants to come to a couple of the discussions, which is awesome, but our schedules don't match at all.

I think pushing my baptism date back has turned out to be a good thing, though, cuz I hadn't realized June 14 was the day before Father's Day. That would have been awkward. "Happy Father's Day, Dad! I'm getting baptized into a faith you know nothing about, and oh by the way, you won't be able to walk me down the aisle when I (eventually) get married! Plus I might leave y'all for 18 months for a mission, but I haven't decided yet!"

All this waiting is frustrating, and I've definitely felt Satan's influence trying to talk me out of even trying. It just seems easier to let things continue as they are - I consider myself Mormon, I'm just not official yet, and I'm comfortable living that way. But I KNOW I need to get baptized. It WILL happen this summer.

I had a dream last night that my sisters knew about my conversion. It was a happy dream. I want them to know. They already feel abandoned, cuz I'm leaving for college this fall. I need to minimize damage caused by my "betrayal" of the faith we were raised in, and I can only do that if I have enough time. And much help from Heavenly Father.

What was the point of this post?

  1. Aw stay strong Marie-Rose!! You are so important and Heavenly Father wants you to grow in the gospel!
    I know your troubles aren't exactly the same as mine, but I feel impelled to share something. When I was going through my extreme doubt period, I had my dad give me a blessing. In the blessing it was said that I was an elect daughter of God who was sent to this earth for a purpose, and that even if I didn't know that for sure, Satan did. He said that Satan knew how important I was to God's plan and how precious I was and that is why he tried extra hard to get me off the path.

    You are so precious to Heavenly Father, and your beauty and righteousness radiates through your words. Keep enduring, loving, hoping, and praying.

    We love you!

    1. Oh my goodness. My friends have said similar things to me on occasion - that Satan knows what I can do, and he doesn't want me doing it, so he does his best to keep me from it. I feel like that's maybe why I have trouble praying, and remembering to pray...

      Anywho, thank you for your beautiful comment, it made my day :) and I have no doubt that you WERE prompted to share, because it was exactly what I needed to hear :)
