Hopefully the password protection works, but I need to write this down. Mom and Dad have agreed to lend us some money for our first down payment on a home! Evelyn and I were shocked that they would do this for us. But I guess they were worried that we would never get around to buying a home here in the Lower Mainland.
So on top of all the papers and exams I’ve been writing, we set out to look for our first home. We found a very nice one that will be completed by the end of November. We applied for the loan, and lo and behold, we were pre-approved for much more than we were expecting!
Things seem to be happening at warp speed. In just a span of three days, we are in a position to buy a home! Again, the hand of the Lord and the generosity of my parents are playing a key role in our life. I wonder why. I have done nothing to deserve these blessings.
I need to be more faithful in all things.
For the first time in a long time, I attended the priesthood session of General Conference. I had to take two days of vacation to do it. It was definitely worth it! I felt the Spirit in a way that I haven’t felt in such a long time. A year in the graveyard shift, and I haven’t had the chance to attend. I am so glad that I was able to go this time around.
The main thing that I learned was that I need to have faith, even a small seed of faith that I could be forgiven for the things that I’ve done wrong. I need to have even a small seed of faith that He will multiply my efforts in bettering my family. I need to have even a small seed of faith that He will help me be successful.
Since I heard those words, I’ve been a lot happier, and a lot more relaxed, in spite of all the stuff on my plate.
