Today I welcomed in the sunshine with open arms and a smiling face.
As I took a stroll around temple square, I marveled at the beauty all around me.
For two years I have spent the majority of my time living up here in the dazzling city called Salt Lake.
There's a certain comfort that comes with the knowledge of ones path for the future. I have always been 5 or more steps ahead with my plans.
Not today my friends, not today.
As startling as it may sound, I have no idea where I will be for the next year and a half of my life.
GOOD NEWS though, the understanding will come in the next 10 days or so, and will come in the form of a big white envelope with my name printed on it!
Today I submitted my papers to be a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
When that envelope comes in the mail, it will contain a call to serve and a location of where the service will take place.
How comforting it is to know that my destination for the next 18 months is completely in Gods hands. I know that He will send me where he needs me most. I know that He is preparing certain people that will change my life, and I know that He is preparing me to change theirs.
I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is true. Why else would I have such a strong desire to testify of it? I know that God loves all of his children, and I cannot wait to declare Gods plan for happiness to some wonderful people in some location in the world.
My life has been truly incredible up to this point, I couldn't have asked for anything more. How exciting it is to know though, that I have even better things to come. We ALL have so much to look forward to. Every day has the potential of becoming our best day so far, and I know already that the next 18 (or so) months of my life will be my best ones yet.
Stay tuned for a video of me opening and reading my call in the next few weeks.
Enjoy the sunshine this beautiful day!
