I'm a girl who believes in prayer.
I very rarely make a decision without passing it by the Big Man first,
and if i forget,
i always doubt whether i made the right choice,
if i pray i will always know.

So making a decision about who you are going to marry is HUGE!
there has been a lot of prayer time dedicated to it over the years over here at my house.

A couple of my favourite bits -

In His mercy, the God of heaven, the Creator and Ruler of all things everywhere, had heard a prayer about a very minor thing. One might well ask why He would concern Himself with something so small. I am led to believe that our Heavenly Father loves us so much that the things that are important to us become important to Him, just because He loves us. How much more would He want to help us with the big things that we ask, which are right (see 3 Nephi 18:20)?

We must not imagine that any kind of prayer, no matter how sincere, will be very effective if all we do is to say the prayer. We must not only say our prayers; we must also live them. The Lord is much more pleased with the person who prays and then goes to work than with the person who only prays. Much like medicine, prayer works only when we use it as directed.

Please do not be discouraged if this does not work for you all at once. Like learning a foreign language, it takes practice and effort. Please know, though, that you can learn the language of the Spirit, and when you do, it will give you great faith and power in righteousness.

And as excited as i am about my future,
and i know i love My Captain with all my heart,
and he's the best person that i know
there are the occasional moments when i'm still worrying,

am i getting it right?
this is it....
this is THE decision of a life time...

but at the end of the day, i know that if i pray
about it and all those worries go away,

then i'm on the right track,

(this picture of Grace Kelly is one of my all time favourite images)

Swan swamped.....

i'm knee deep in swan lake rehearsals again....
(cross your fingers that it doesnt get cancelled again)
and also managed to use up my entire months supply of interent usage in one week....

that would be all that googling of wedding venues that i've been doing....

i pretty much had a breakdown on my way to work the other morning.
i cried the whole 45minute journey into the arms of the stranger sitting next to me....
Too tired....and 4 months of Swan Lake rehearsals is draining me,
i was ready and excited to do it back in February.
That compiled with my parents need to send me wedding ideas every two minutes was unbearable (they got the message and have calmed down)

i also got my period a few days later which explained
the inability to emotionally cope with anything....
i hate being a girl....

i've got like a million awesome holiday pictures
that i might get round to putting up here one day...

but probably not any time soon....

Excerpt from The Velveteen Rabbit

“What is REAL?” asked the Rabbit one day, when they were lying side by side near the nursery fender, before Nana came to tidy the room. “Does it mean having things that buzz inside you and a stick-out handle?”

“Real isn’t how you are made,” said the Skin Horse. “It’s a thing that happens to you. When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but Really loves you, then you become Real.”

“Does it hurt?” asked the Rabbit.

“Sometimes,” said the Skin Horse, for he was always truthful. “When you are Real you don’t mind being hurt.”

“Does it happen all at once, like being wound up,” he asked, “or bit by bit?”

“It doesn’t happen all at once,” said the Skin Horse. “You become. It takes a long time. That’s why it doesn’t happen often to people who break easily, or have sharp edges, or who have to be carefully kept. Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get all loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don’t matter at all, because once you are Real you can’t be ugly, except to people who don’t understand.”

I'm Back!

Holiday/tour was lovely....

still got a few more days before i head back to ballet....

i think i'll use them in mourning of the loss of my Captain.
I love being able to spend every day with him
(even if it was only 4 days)
it felt like a lifetime.

It felt like home.

i dropeed my laptop on tour,
and now everything that should be white is fusia pink.
not that i would mind, seeing as i quite like the colour pink,
but it makes it incredibly difficult to read/see anything on the screen.

Maybe i'll see if i can take it into computer hospital somewhere,
I hope so seeing as its brand new!

A curse upon my butter fingers!

Be warned,
lots of boring travel pictures will be appearing in the next few posts.....
