Closer and closer...

Last moments for this week:
The last BYC meeting
The last doctor's appointment, on Wednesday
The last free pizza from Papa Murphy's
Finally throwing away my corsages, beautiful dried flowers, and taking down my dance pictures
The last Seminary Counsel party, with ridiculous amounts of Panda Express and candy

Whoa. I can't believe it's almost here. I am freaking out, ha. I am so, so nervous. In one month from Friday I am off to Virginia! The other side of the world! Nothing will ever, ever be the same. I'll officially be an adult.. Wow.
This week was awesome. I couldn't believe how well the Senior Night at the Seminary went (: It has been such a blessing in my life.. the teachers are incredible, and have taught me so much. They've opened my eyes to all sorts of things, and have really helped me live, not just know about, the gospel. Being on seminary counsel especially has taught me alot. Although it's been really hard or frustrating to wake up early and go to meetings, or have to clean up after everyone leaves, it has been such an incredible experience, and I wouldn't have changed a thing. It was amazing (:
Probably my favorite part was our theme, D&C 68:6. It's kind of funny, as we were choosing the theme, I was convinced another one would be better. But as we talked about it, I just felt alot of peace and finally realized that the one we chose was the best. It has been so powerful.

"Wherefore, be of good cheer, and do not fear, for I the Lord am with you, and will stand by you, and ye shall bear record of me, even Jesus Christ, that I am the Son of the living God, that I was, that I am, and that I am to come"

This scripture has grown to be so close to my heart. It gives me so much comfort in the big things to the little things, from performing a solo in solo & ensemble to choosing a college to go to. That's one of my favorite things about the gospel - the principles apply to all aspects of your life, and encompass both the smallest and the most immense things. It's great (: And so comforting. It really strengthens my faith. Life is so exciting, but very scary right now. But I know that I don't have to fear. The Lord is with me, and will stand by me, and so I will be of good cheer! I don't have to be afraid. It will all turn out ok (:
