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?
