For the past few days I have caught what I am going to call "Neverland Syndrome." As I prepare for my own mission I sometimes wonder if I am old enough or mature enough to accomplish such a feat even with the help of my Heavenly Father? I wonder if everyone grows up this fast? Can I stop it? Do I want to? I have come to realize that even as I may try and fight growing-up, as long as I am becoming someone that I can be proud of and that my Heavenly Father can be proud of, I have nothing real to worry about. I may not decide my fate and the hills and valleys along the way, but I can determine how I will confront these obstacles and become better because of them. In other words...
Even though I will not be able to talk to my friend face to face for quite sometime we will be one in spirit. We will both be serving the Lord and God's children with our whole hearts.
I am so grateful for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I am grateful for my Father in Heaven and His Son, Jesus Christ. I know that He loves each of us unconditionally and showed that love as He died for each of us to allow us to one day, return to our Father in Heaven. I know that the Book of Mormon is truly Another Testament of Jesus Christ and can bring us closer to Him. I also know that families can be TOGETHER FOREVER! There are so many wonderful blessings that we can receive through obedience and humility!
