I leave for college this week. I'm not sure how I feel about it yet. I don't think I'm quite ready. I'm certainly not quite packed yet. I still have to go buy nail polish remover and wash my new comforter and figure out which clothes I can leave home. Not to mention a million other things that I'm probably forgetting. So that's why I haven't been posting. Sorry 'bout that... :)
|I could sit and look at this Temple all day.|
I had the opportunity to go on History Trek a couple weekends ago. We went to sites like Winter Quarters, Liberty Jail, Far West, Carthage, and Nauvoo (and probably some more that I'm forgetting right now). The night before we left, I prayed. My goal for this trip was to figure out how to best approach my dad about my baptism, so as to help him be comfortable with my decision.
And then practically everything and everyone was like "Faith in God includes faith in His timing" the WHOLE TRIP. I think I got my answer, it's just not the one I wanted.
I've known for quite a while that I'm supposed to learn patience by waiting to get baptized. I thought I could put a time limit on my trial, though. I thought I could decide when my patience lesson ended. Needless to say, I was quite wrong.
It's one thing to wait for something, knowing exactly when that thing will come to pass. It's a totally different matter to wait, not knowing when your waiting will end. I KNOW that I will eventually get baptized. It will happen. And right now, my intent is the only thing that matters. For some reason - Heavenly Father's reason - I need to wait. So here I am, waiting.
And also going to college.
