Another exciting thing I got to check off my Missionary To-Do List is that I got my passport! You don't need to have one in order to send your papers but since I want to go out of the country pretty bad I figure that if I have a passport already my chances of going foreign are that much better. I set my appointment to get it all sorted out a month ago and it came in the mail last week! Hooray for items checked off!
[obviously my computer skills are lacking because idk how to flip my pictures to 'readable']It's kind of weird to think that in just a few months I could be anywhere in the world with a name tag on. Anywhere! One of the nice things is that the temple is everywhere and so is the Spirit! That means wherever I go will be for a reason and good things will come of it. I went to the Mesa Temple this morning to sit and contemplate my life. There wasn't much contemplating and it was kind of chilly so I didn't sit too long but I felt good watching the sun come up behind the palm trees to shine on a House of the Lord. Unfortunately, my camera phone skills are horrible and I failed to capture just how beautiful the moment was. Trust me though, a tear or two was shed as I hummed A Child's Prayer to myself (and to the occasional elderly couple out for their morning speed walk). It was beautiful and I cannot wait to go in there!!
