Starting another scrapbook

This is the first page & my most recent layout

I have been procrastinating a little on starting the 2nd scrapbook I am doing for my aunt. I have until Aug. to finish this book, but I want to finish it in time to take it to Idaho with me. I have been feeling uninspired which is surprising. However, despite it taking me about 4 hours total, I finished the first page! It's crazy how some layouts just seem to happen and others take me forever to get just right. This page looks pretty cute. I have to laugh a little. . .just recently I had someone say to me that scrapbooking was just a way to make one photo cost $20.00 I admit scrapbooking has cost me quite a bit of money over the years, but in exchange I preserve my memories and other peoples memories while creating a piece of art. I don't think of the money because I simply enjoy having an outlet. The joy I get from the books I have made for my family and for myself are simply priceless. I have also been told that the pages(books) I have made for others bring so much joy to the recipients. I am not the best at it. I can't afford all the fancy embellishments, but I create what I can.

My Testimony

It's hard to put into words how I feel toward my Heavenly Father and the Savior. I have so many reasons to be thankful for what I have gone through & endured. Because of my trials in life I have gained a strong testimony of Faith. I have always had Faith in the Lord and in Prayer. As I faced the decision to get a double lung transplant I had to rely on faith to make the choice.....By listening to the spirit, I was guided to Pittsburgh where my life was saved. I believe prayers are answered. I have always tried to follow the philosophy of this: If I do what the Lord expects of me, he will give me what I want & need. That has always worked for me. I Believe in MIRACLES..........My life on this earth is a miracle- I prayed on my knees for years to be healed from my lung disease. I knew that through a priesthood blessing (if it was God's will) I could be healed. So many times I thought he would heal me instantly...my faith was tested as I continued to get sick and no cure was in my future. I turned to prayer....I talked to my Heavenly Father, I cried to him and he heard me and he healed me by guiding me to Pittsburgh and guiding the surgeons hands. I learned humility, and thankfulness. I realized that we need others to lean on and we are supposed to strengthen each others testimonies. I learned that the hardest things we'll do are usually the greatest blessings in our life. I was able to experience a lot of things during surgery and I know I had comforting angels in my ICU room. THe Lord knows each of us by name and he will never leave our side. We need to remember to stay close to him and have Faith that he is watching over us. I know this for a fact! I know that following the gospel will bring us true happiness- the world will tell us otherwise, but I know I am truely happy & living the gospel has brought me that. Amen
