In LDC we are doing a The Family: A Proclamation to the World show and there is going to be a 10 min doohickie of just love songs and I realized that when he said that at least 15 songs jumped in my head.
I love, love songs.
I just love them. I love the way they make you feel, I love the ability they have to make you think of the one you do love and the happiness that was put into writing those songs.
So these are my favorite love songs.
Love, love, love, love.

Come What May
Marry Me
We Belong Together
With or Without You
Kiss Me
Everything I Do, I Do It For You
The Only Exception
Whether you're in a relationship, or just in many different friendships with others love songs remind us how wonderful if and how things happen for a reason, life keeps moving forward. We make goals and we keep striving for them, sometimes we don't know how life will turn out but we know that love is a real thing, it exists. You will find it if you haven't, everyone will have the opportunity to love and be loved.

Do you have any favorite love songs?

2 Nephi 9:39 - Get it Right

"O, my beloved brethren , remember the awfulness in transgressing against that Holy God, and also the awfulness of yielding to the enticings of that cunning one. Remember, to be carnally-minded is death, and to be spiritually-minded is life eternal ."

Sometimes these scriptures pop up a time too late. After you've already offended the Holy God above. After you already feel like crap and already have the uncomprehending feelings of regret for what you've done. Where you feel lower than dirt, where you feel unworthy to partake in anything that surrounds your life. That you aren't worthy for the love that he has to give you.

Will I ever, "Get it Right"
(Play the music while you read the rest)
I don't watch Glee anymore because it's been getting pretty sketching pertaining to quality and storyline as a whole. But I do look up the songs sung every week and this one song came up. It is an original song that a Glee writer wrote or someone. Regardless of who wrote it, it speaks and rings true to what I feel when I make stupid mistakes that could have been avoided, but instead I forget the consequences, I forget what is important. I forget to remember what is on the line; my future life. My future family, and myself integrity and self worth. I'm worth something, I'm worth everything to a being who is so much more than I and I'm glad that he is the one running my life...and if I listen to what he is saying he'll lead me in the right direction and give me strength to resist the temptation that Satan loves to play with. I'm a daughter of God, my loving Heavenly Father, I am not a daughter of Satan. I am good and true to what I say. One day i'll get it right, I don't know when that will be, but I know that if I put my trust in Him, it will work.
(Pictures aren't supposed to make you cry...but this one strikes a chord in my heart)
"How many times will it take for me to get it right?"
"Can I start again? With my faith shaken?

Do give every person a chance to prove themselves?

Happy St. Patty's Day

I woke up today and slipped on my green sun dress. Sun dress, those are two lovely words that usually have an accompanying friend named the sun. This lovely, warm, attractive entity is my friend and I have missed him through the months of cold winter and skiwampus weather that has plagued my life and messed with my emotions. I think I have a minor case of seasonal depression, very slight. I think everyone can say they feel the effects when their absorption of vitamin D is cut in half because of the frozen balls of rain that cover the earth. But not today on this wonderful day of green, clovers, and sparkling cider.

Are you wearing green? If not, watch out!

This morning I jumped my brother...he wasn't wearing green so I pinched him butt, arm, and leg a few times before he threw on a green shirt that he isn't even wearing now. But I am a gracious sister so I will not pinch him for the remainder of the day. I think he learned himself a lesson.

Sorry for the negative...

I have one day a month where all my emotions are askew and I would rather die than face the day ahead of me. Call it a moment of depression or anything in between. Regardless of what you end up calling it, it sucks, I hate this feeling. It hasn't happened for a few months and just yesterday it hit me like a ton of bricks...every time one of these emotionally draining train wrecks occurs I seem to spend the whole time loathing about everything wrong with me. I tend to looks to towards the bad and complete dismiss all good that is happening. Basically I feel as though I haven't tried hard enough.
I am not any farther in life than I was a good year ago. I feel like i'm losing time or wasting it like I waste my money. I'm impulsive, I don't think things through until I'm halfway in and I can't take what I said back or give it back or want to give it back. I'm in a continuous circle of regret. A circle for hurting people. A circle for not working hard enough. A circle for sorry's. A circle for loss of money. A circle for trying to help others but I really can never do anything for them. A circle for treating people ill when they deserve so much better. I hate feeling like this.
I feel down and out, I know the feeling will go away but boy does Satan take advantage of my weakened emotional state and take the opportunity two hand hold and pull to show me all my faults at once. It's overwhelming and not fair. But what about life is fair? Absolutely nothing. But that's what it's called life and in the long run it's going to be ok.
