This is sooooo me!

Today I spent the afternoon with two pretty incredible guys! One of course was my fabulous husband and the other was my friend from CF Camp Redcliff. I had not seen Jake in almost 20 years. Him and his wife were in Phoenix for a conference his wife had to be at. . .so I was lucky enough to spend ALL afternoon with him!

Bryan drove us up to a cool little 'touristy' area up cave creek. We found a book store. . .and another jewelry store where Jake purchased a $2.00 magnet! We were big spenders today :) However my big purchase was at an interesting 'yard sale' where an imdependant movie was selling off their props and stuff. Apparently they had a 60's themed movie of some kind with perhaps some questionable plots. But that didn't detour me from finding this treasure!!!
I HAD TO HAVE IT. I wanted a wig they had (not high quality, but may be fun), and a night stand. . .not just ANY nightstand. . . .this one called to me. It was marked $65 and the wig was $20 but everything left was 1/2 price~ so that would have been $32.50 and $10.00. They couldn't take debt/credit. . .so I checked but only had $25.00 cash on me. My friend Jake offered to give me more money if I needed it. . .but I had a plan in the works! I KNOW HOW TO YARD SALE! I pulled out my $25.00 and said it is all the cash I had and I would take the table and the wig. Some discussion was exchanged and before I know it I owned both of them for only $25.00 ~ I didn't see any other potential buyers there to offer them more than that I knew what I was doing. So Here She Is, my night stand that in every way describes me, we were meant to be together!!!

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
