Better Days

So you asked me what I want this year
I`ma try to make this calm, and clear. 
Just a chance that maybe we`ll find:(see title)

cuz I don`t need boxes wrapped in strings, 
or desinger love, or empty things.
just a chance that maybe we`ll find:(See title)

So take these words, and sing out loud.
because everyone is forgiven now.
and tonight`s the night the world begins again.

Name that song?

This week was one fun thing after another. So last Monday I told my mom we were ready for the wedding of Jander and William on Saturday, and she warned me that the adversary would try with all he can to stop it. I knew she was right, but I didn`t know HOW right she was.

Monday at 11:00 (just as we finished writing.) began the first problem. One of the families in the branch who is really good friends with Jander had been talking to her and asking questions like ``are you SURE about this`` and other things, so when we talked to her to pic up some papers for the lawyer she was pretty indecisive and scared and nervous. We had a good lesson with her that night which helped her trust in the Lord. 

Tuesday my comp had an ultrasound on his ankle which has been bugging him because of an old surgery. They were not very kind to him, and he left the doctor's office barely able to walk. at 4:00 we limped over to one of the members that was going to be a witness for the wedding, and she got super angry because WE had been the ones who asked her to be a witness, not the bride. She refused to help us whatsoever. we had had an appointment with the lawyer and the family at 5:00 to finish the paperwork, but at 5:30 limping our way to the chapel without someone to be a witness we missed both the lawyer and the couple

Wednesday the lawyer wasn`t going to help us anymore, but after struggling ALL morning to find a witness and taking the papers to the lawyer, she accepted.

Thursday we still couldn`t leave the house because of my comps ankle, but in the nighttime was the interview and they both passed.

Friday the bride`s family told her that if she got married they were going to kick them out of where they are living if they get married because the lot belongs to the grandpa.

(Friday night they decided to postpone the wedding until may 26 so they could find somewhere to live before getting kicked out of the house, but they still wanted to get baptized, so they decided the groom would just live in his aunt`s house until the wedding and they would keep the law of chastity and still get baptized Saturday.)

Saturday morning the lawyer told us that it was REALLY hard legally to change the date of a wedding the day of, but we got it worked out. 

Saturday night 15 minutes before the wedding the couple got in a fight and decided that it wasn`t a good idea for them to get baptized that day because the wife was angry that the husband might get jealous because they weren`t living in the same house and he might think she was cheating on him and so they decided it would be better to just keep living together because they couldn`t promise to live the law of chastity.

I have a lot of faith that this week I am in for some BETTER DAYS.

I love you all, and I know that God has a plan, which is sometimes different than what we think our plan is. I trust God fully and know that he will help me to do what`s right.

I will forever remember what William said when trying to calm down Jander and make a choice.


Amen, Brother William.

Love you all!

have a great week!
