"the light which shineth"

Picture 6

I had a bad week 2 weeks ago. It went like this:

+laptop crashed and 12,000+ photos GONE
+car problems mean $100+ here and another $2,700+ there. Guh
+new watch, broken. wah.
+possibility of a job change, then a call saying it wasn't going to happen. crushed
+looking for a new house to rent, proving to be let down after let down.
+my remote car keys both broken making that an almost $200 fix
+and sometimes I get overwhelmed with nova granola, which is actually only a good thing because that means business

sob. sob.

It's all cool now. Things get better. I have my laptop back and I learned a lesson in backing up important stuff. My car runs smooth. I bought a new watch. The new job might actually swing my way again. We'll find a house to rent eventually. My car keys are a go! Nova orders are made and I love doing it. I survive.

wanna know what felt good? reading this:
Doctrine & Covenants 88 verses 6-13

 Which truth shineth. This is the light of Christ. As also he is in the sun, and the light of the sun, and the power thereof by which it was made.
 As also he is in the moon, and is the light of the moon, and the power thereof by which it was made;
 As also the light of the stars, and the power thereof by which they were made;
 10 And the earth also, and the power thereof, even the earth upon which you stand.
 11 And the light which shineth, which giveth you light, is through him who enlighteneth your eyes, which is the same light that quickeneth your understandings;
 12 Which light proceedeth forth from the presence of God to fill the immensity of space—

What an amazing scripture passage. I needed that today! I am sad you had a rough week, but I am glad everything is working out. Car problems are the most frustrating thing in the world and it always happens at the wrong time. Love you. Thanks for being so amazing and honest girl.

BAM! That is some powerful scripture- thanks for sharing. Jane, I seriously think you are the coolest so I'm bummed you had such a rotten week.

Oh no! That week sounds like the most bummer week ever. Sorry.

Glad things are better. You can always come live with us. :)

I've had weeks like that where there's a never ending amount of problems. I'm glad things are working out again for you. And that was a great scripture to lift your spirits, and see your blessings. I hope that new job position pans out for you!

Darn Jane! Those are major bummers. Glad things are on the up and up. I want to know more about the job change. Do tell.

Lindsay said...

Oh you are just so strong and great and positive Jane. I hate lame weeks like that. Last I heard from you it sounded like you weren't too sure about the job change...so maybe now you know how you really feel about it? That's always a good thing.
