Weekly Letters and RM Applications

For about two months now I have been sending my missionary weekly letters. Well, now I am starting to get them! Yay! Usually I have to wait like at least a month to get another letter. It has been a week since his last one and I just got one today! I like this idea of getting a letter every Monday :] 

In his letter, there was an "application to date an RM". It is seriously one of the funniest things I have read in my life! 

For a while now I have been signing my letters with his last name :] He finally started addressing me like that in his letters! It just feels right :]

7 weeks of waiting = PICTURES!!

So I FINALLY got a letter from my mish after what felt like an ETERNITY!!! BUT! It came with a lot of love, 8 pages front and back, and 18 PICTURES! AHHH!!!! This is the first time I have gotten pictures from him and I was so excited! (if you can't tell). I will try and put the pictures up as soon as I can but it might be a while ha.

He is doing great and has a new companion. His companion has a girl in waiting as well so they have a lot to talk about! ;] He also told me the song he is writing me is almost finished! I told him he better not forget it cuz I want to hear it when he gets back haha

I am so in love with that boy and only have 21 more months till I can see him again! <3

Now I am going to vent a bit... I hate it when people tell me I could be a distraction to him and that I'm wasting my time waiting (and so many other things MG's get). Ok 1 you do NOT know the relationship me and my mish have because you are not us 2 you are NOT with him and do NOT know exactly what he is thinking and 3 IT'S NONE OF YOUR DANG BUSINESS!! If I am being a distraction to him, it is up to HIM to tell me! Not YOU!! Yes I know there is a POSSIBILITY that I could be distracting  him and that he won't want me to wait. But do I believe that that possibility is REALITY?! NO. I can tell in his letters that he is doing great and that my letters help him. I can also tell that he still loves me and might even be MORE in love with me! So do me a favor, next time you want to tell me to stop writing him as much or to quit because I won't make it anyways, JUST SHUT UP AND KEEP IT TO YOURSELF.

3 Month Mark

Wow it has been a long time since I have posted. And unfortunately this probably isn't going to be the longest post ever. 

Well, another month has gone by! Only 21 more till I get to see the love of my life again and have my best friend back! It has been over a month since I have heard from him, which is probably why I have not posted in so long. I haven't checked the mail since Wednesday because it is fall break so I am stuck at my parents house. I love my parents don't get me wrong, but I hate the town they live in. And yes that is where I grew up. But believe me, I hated it then too.

I really think the Lord is trying to teach me some patience because I am going crazy! Every week I think "OK. It should be coming. It has been enough time" but nope. Hasn't happened yet. But thankfully that means that when it finally does come that it will be that much sweeter :]

Talking by the Spirit

In conference this past weekend, there was a talk that someone gave (forgive me I can't remember who and am to lazy to find my notes) that said that we need to talk BY the Spirit. Well, I believe that I have had that experience lately. 

After FHE tonight, there was a guy that stayed and started asking my roommate questions. I was listening in and he was asking some deep questions. My roommate was kinda stumped... So I kinda felt inspired to cut in. He stayed and talked with me for like an hour or so. One of the things he said was that he became inactive because some of the LDS members are to judgmental and pushy. Now, he is now the first person to tell me this. My brother has said it and my roommate (not the same one he was talking with) have both told me. I would like to share with all of you what I have told them:

You should not be a member of the church because you like the people who are there. Yes, it is a bonus if you do but they shouldn't be the reason you are going and they DEFINITELY shouldn't keep you from going. Also, you do not know anyone else's circumstances. They could be going through hard trials, or maybe they themselves need to work on the things they are accusing you of so they see it in other people more prominently. Whatever the case may be, the gospel is still true. It never changes. The lessons you learn and the feelings you get won't change because a certain person was there. If you do not like to be judge by people, don't listen. And do not judge them because no one is perfect. Yes, there will be sometimes when someone is teaching a lesson and it seems like they should be listening instead of teaching. But, maybe that is why they are teaching. All of the time I hear teachers say that they get more out of the lesson than their students do or they say that the lesson was made for them because they are personally struggling with that certain thing. 

I guess what I am trying to say is that the gospel is true, no matter where and no matter who. If you love the church and know it is true, nothing should keep you from your eternal happiness.
