"You cannot give a crust to the Lord without receiving a loaf in return"

Oh it has been a long day today. I took Joshua to the airport this morning at 5:30. Drove back and went straight to my janitor job at 7:30, then went and did a poop scooping job. Came home and went to the gym. I ran a full mile and a half on my knee. It is feeling, hmm.... a bit sore and tight but I think thats normal. I haven't ran on it for 4 months. So that felt real good! Came home and showered and did some things, then went to work at Gold's for 5 hours tonight. Just got home. I am tired!

Well.... 2 more weeks and I am out of Provo. I will be unemployed and job searching again. Oh I hate to say I am not looking forward to it, but....I am not looking forward to it. I have been sending my resume and applying to places a lot the past 3 weeks but haven't gotten anything just yet. OH! And I am so nervous for school. I'll have to be a good student. man! But it'll be good for me.

The past 2 weeks (or however long its been since I have posted) have been pretty good. Working lots, being with Jared a bit, and just doing life. I learn more and more each day.

Conference was so incredible! There were so many incredible messages given to us. ALL things that are so obvious that we need to work on as a people. We have a long way to go but we'll get there. Each conference, I realize a little more and more how absolutely amazing, and really what a miracle it is that we have a Prophet that gives us revelation in our day. THAT'S INCREDIBLE! I get anxious to hear what they have prepared for us each time. I definitely have my work cut out for me for the next 6 months. So do the single guys.... (hahahaha... I realized this conference how grateful I was to be female!) I listened to the priesthood session yesterday and it was so so good! Monson's talk was wonderful. I loved what he said, "Choose your love, and love your choice." SO GREAT! Today I listened to Elder Oaks talk on desire. The story about the guy who cut off his arm to save his life was incredible. I can't even imagine. Here's a little part of it I really liked a lot.

"Desire dictates our priorities, priorities shape our choices, and choices determine our actions." -Elder Oaks

We underestimate how important desire is. Everything stems from desire. We cannot improve in any way without a desire to do it first. I loved this talk.

Oh. I sure love you. By the way... I'm a visiting teaching failure without you. I miss you.

Whatever Sarah! You're not a failure. I love you both!

And I love that you made a "surprise" visit to AZ, Tarah!
