"YOU MUST ENDURE THE NIGHT FOR ME"
I remember hearing my Institute teacher recall a moment when the Savior spoke to one of his apostles. His Apostles righteouss desire to protect the Savior in his greatest hour was good and noble. But the Lord needed him to stay alive and stand for Him in this world of caos. I don't know where this story is..or the details...I just remember my teachers words..."You must endure the night". Which to me says; you MUST endure your personal shackles, darkness, pain, and live for TRUTH. To live for a man who gave everything that we might not suffer as he did. A man who loved so purely and suffered the most horrific pain of all time. We MUST live for Him.
I don't see very many people living for him anymore. Infact, I don't see anyone who really spends even a drop of their time thinking about him or his life. I have to ask myself, how often do I think of him? How often do I stand up for him? And do I live the way he taught me to live? I think it's become easier to shake my fist at the sky rather then kneel down and talk to him like a friend. Perhaps to let him know...that his life means something to me. That it was not in vain. At least not for me. I don't want to sit on the fence. Thinking of him in the Garden of Gethsemane, as he bleed from every pore. And I think "One of those drops was for me...." And somehow it makes everything different. The way I LIVE is important. I MUST endure MY night. My bad days, my heartwrenching experiences, my sorrows. I must live.

I bet life would sure be different if we each had a chance to walk in anothers shoes. Or perhaps our perspectives would change in a hurry! We would be less critical...judgemental...assuming. Take for example, George W. Bush. Most of the world hates him. But if you walked in his shoes for even a small moment, I whole heartedly believe, a hardened heart would be softened. And perhaps you might see him for who he really is. A very human man, just like YOU and I! But someone who has tried with all of his soul to do the best thing. To do the best of his ability. Thats what we are all trying to do, eh? Do the best we can in this life. Take the position we have and try in our weaknesses to serve our fellowmen and our God.
God bless you, George W. Your a good soul!

THE GHETTO CRUISE!
So I just got back from a cruise to Caribean with my best mates. It was hilarious!! Probably one of most amusing experiences I've had in a long time and it turned out to be a week full of laughter and the shaking of my head in total disbelief. First off the whole ship smelled of formaldehyde, the pools and jacuzzi water looked like "pee-pee", A life time supply of hot dogs and hamburgers was the main courses, and I had to PAY for orange juice! Holy Crap! Isn't orange juice a staple drink? Anyhow...we got over it fast and had alot of fun. My best friends are a hoot and we were there with 420 mormon singles! (me included as one of them) We met some kool people and visited three ports. Cozumel, Mexico...Roatan Island...and Belize. The trip highlights were; Roatan Island forsure! It was sooo beautiful!!, The eating of bread pudding in the middle of the night, Sleeping in the darkest room I have ever been in! LOVED IT! (It was so comforting to lay in pitch black to the sway of the ship), Late night dancing, reading my book "Twilight", and well....the cruise director (Jeremy). heh heh. I have alot of fun memories to chuckle about and isn't that what trips are all about? :)
Probably one of the best books I've read in a long time! I havn't been into novels for quite awhile, but my best friend encouraged me to read this one. When she told me it was about a girl who falls in love with a vampire, I laughed at her! NOT MY TYPE OF BOOK! But her peer pressure got the best of me! heh. And now I am in love with this book! I couldn't put it down and spent one night reading until 4am. It's so koool! haha. I hear there is going to be a sequel and possibly a movie. Hurrah!
