Wisdom Teeth out.
So the Wisdom teeth came out this morning. I was awake and numb, and it was okay. It really doesn't hurt much at all and I'm just taking Motrin. I feel pretty good. I'm really excited that I will be able to make it to Sacrament on Sunday and I also have a quick interview for my patriarchal blessing!!!!! Which I really don't want to miss.
I feel very blessed to be doing so well. The Oral Surgeon allowed me to listen to my music during the procedure and I was listening to the Nashville Tribute to Joseph Smith, a complete favorite of mine! It was very helpful in calming my heart and mind.
I mostly only listen to this kind of music. Our LDS gospel and church music, I just find it so uplifting and much of other music in the world not very uplifting.
Something I heard at our last Fast and Testimony was that whatever you do, every choice you make is either adding to or taking away from your testimony of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. A friend of mine said that and it helps me every day to make decisions pleasing to our Father in Heaven.
I have eaten about 6 McDonalds Ice Cream cones today :D yum!!
and am a little sore, but decided it is a good thing to keep up with my journal.
So much of this journal and writings will reflect my life. The form of it will be messy until I can organize my days again and then it should be more focused. Much of it will include my journey towards Heavenly Father's Kingdom and the path laid ahead of me, how I can be better and help others as well.
If anyone has any experiences with Patriarchal Blessings please do share!!!
I am just so excited about it!
I really am so pleased and so grateful to have the opportunity to know of the True Gospel in this life. To have the privelege to follow the commandments of our Heavenly Father. I know that we, who follow in this righteous way receive many blessings in this life. I know it is worth just a proud and happy look on my Father's face, that he knows that i CHOSE him and CHOOSE him everyday in this overly-temporal world. Knowing that I was a spirit daughter and was so excited about His plan for us, to come to earth and strive to learn and grow and come back to Him makes me excited for life, just estatic for my journey. The Holy Ghost helps me to learn and to see new things each day.
I don't believe this world lets you sit still. I think you are moving forward or you are going backwards, in all ways; Spiritually, mentally, emotionally, physically, etc. I do not believe sitting is the answer.
And I leave this with you in the name of the Savior Jesus Christ, Amen.
p.s. - Herod the Fink has some amazing songs! I love the song: I've got a friend. Catchy and meaningful!
