Settling In

We officially live in Oklahoma. We got here on Wednesday late afternoon. The drive was pretty good. The weather was great and we didn't have to drive through rain or snow, couldn't ask for better moving weather. We had 4-5 guys from our Church meet us at our apartment and helped us pack all our stuff up 3 floors! I am so grateful they helped us, there was no way Bryan could have done it on his own.

The first couple days here were really warm! in the high 60's low 70's. . .but today it cooled down to around 50 with some cold wind. Still tolerable though. Yesterday morning we woke up to a weird clickity clackity scratching noise coming from our laundry area. My first thought was that it was a 'humongous' cockroach. . .2nd thought was maybe it's a mouse. . .when Bryan unhooked the dryer hose a big sparrow thing flew at his head and was flying loose in our apartment!!! Bry opened the patio door and it flew out~ What a nice house warming gift huh? Otherwise the move has been pretty good. Expensive, but good. It's hard to start completely over in a new place. EVERYONE wants a deposit :) Even the post office got $25 just to give us keys to our mailbox! Merry Christmas to us. . . it will get better, this will be worth it!

I will post some pics of our apartment when I get completely moved in. Bry got the paperwork done to start at the Harley Shop and as soon as his "drug" test comes back clean.

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
