Hindsight is an awe inspiring thing, isn't it?
Jeffrey R. Holland (a member of the quorum of the twelve apostles, a part of my religion, Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints) gave this quote in the Sunday afternoon session of conference exactly one week ago.
I was sitting on Leslie Loo's couch, trying desperately to focus on his talk. None of us watching were paying a lot of attention, we all seemed so fidgety. But then, this quote came ringing out of his mouth, and I couldn't tear my mind away from it.
Sunday night, after saying goodbye to Leslie and her roommates, I walked home with his quote reverberating through my skull. I walked in to a sleeping apartment and knelt down in the living room and prayed my heart out. I told Heavenly Father that I believed I would be an amazing nurse, that I believed in myself, but most importantly, that I believed in Him to direct my life.
He heard my prayer. I'm going to nursing school.
So on this Easter Sunday, a plastic egg, chocolate bunny, neon basket-less day, I am so grateful for my Heavenly Father and for my Savior. I am so grateful to be a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I'm grateful for my upbringing in the church and the values it has giving me.
I'm grateful for my Savior, Jesus Christ, who took upon himself all my sins, and felt every pain I will ever feel. He died on the cross, and rose again on the third day. He gave me Eternal life.
Happy Easter, Ya'll.
