My Christmas List :)

If only we could get everything we want for Christmas. . . but in reality I am pretty easy to please. The move this year has cost us about every penny we have to our name, so Christmas will be pretty simple around here, which doesn't break my heart. . sometimes those are the years that are most precious. I already have Bryan's gift and I am soooo excited to give it to him. I can't say much about it cuz Bryan reads my blog regularly :)

I have always seen the organized spacious scrapbook/craft rooms and someday I hope to have one of my own. .but this year my wishes are more simple.First of all I hope Susanne Heck gets new lungs. She is in Pittsburgh waiting for the call. She is CF/Cepacia.

Secondly: I need WARM clothes!!! and a new coat/jacket! I am freezing here :) I would also like some i-tunes gift cards to add music to my ipod. I always like workout clothes. I really don't have anything BIG on my list. I am happy with what I have and there is nothing I can't live without. I enjoy gifts that have a lot of thought and love in them.

I already have a Christmas gift right now. . .Bryan is only working 30 hours a week through the winter here cuz business slows, so I get to see him a lot more and that is NICE! I will be glad when he goes back to 40 hours or more (we will need the money), but for now we'll make due and we get to spend a lot more time together. Already a perfect Christmas :)

Anyways, this is a misc, fun post. I really like Christmas. I like finding the perfect gift for people and I like the feeling that surrounds this time of year! I think I will make a Christmas Chain to countdown the days. . .I loved doing that as a child :)

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
