A Father's Blessing

Well I ended up having my dad give me a blessing. It was a great idea for me to get a blessing from him. Besides the fact that I know what I'm doing with my life now, I learned so many more things from that blessing. My parents really do care about me and what is going on in my life and I need to go to them more often when I am struggling. My parents are just amazing and have such a spirit about them. I love it and glad I was raised by them!! But I also realized that I need to rely on my father in heaven more often. I am too much of a person that wants to do things on my own and figure things out my own way and dont want to put my life in other people's hands. But i've learned how to do that a little bit better now that Vanessa is around and changing me for the better. But i have been praying everynight the last two weeks and its amazing how my day goes better when I start and end with a prayer. But i need to go to him more often and I'm so glad he's fogiving and he still wants me to come to him even though i completely kept him out of my life before. Its an amazing feeling. But here's the news that I think all of you have been waiting for..... drum roll please........ BYUI!!! yes I made the right decisions before, I was just having too many complications with the school and satan was working me way too hard. so here I am back in the groove for Rexburg!! I'll be keeping you posted on how the college prep is comin and the stress levels rising. But i jsut have to say that I'm glad my dad is worthy enough to give me a father's blessing on the spot and my parents are caring enough and have the spirit with them enough to have an hour discussion with me about my life ahead. Thank you mom and dad and especially thank you to my heavenly father. I love you!!!

I'm so glad you received a blessing. Sometimes when we make a choice that will really bless our lives and help us grow spiritually, Satan gets a little jealous. He tries to make us think we made the wrong decision. I am sure that you will grow and learn so much at BYUI!

Sometimes its nice to KNOW that our father in heaven is on the opposite side of that blessing. Thats the best part about a fathers blessing. Your dad may live with you, know your concerns... but your father in heaven knows your heart. Im really excited for you. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Much love always! <3
