He Is Risen...

"I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live"

My favourite thing about Easter is spending the time to reflect on all that the Saviour has done for me.
Words can not expression how truly grateful for the Saviour I am.
I love him with my whole heart.
He is my Lord, he is my big brother.
He knows the plan that Heavenly Father has for me,
He watches out for me each and every day.
He cares and worries about me.
He hears my prayers.
He knows me better than any person will,
He knows me better than I know myself.
And he knows the great potential that I have in me.

He lives.
And He loves each and everyone of us,
No matter where we are in life or what we have done,
He will always love us.

Enjoy your Easter break,
And remember to take the time to reflect on the true meaning, 
And to thank the Lord for all that he has done for us and continues to do for us.

Elder Joseph B. Wirthlin gives an amazing talk about the resurrection, so I am going to allow him to finish this blog post for you.

I love this video, the artwork/photography are amazing,
Put to music of my favourite hymn just adds to how powerful this video is to watch.

Link Love...

I love finding things on the internet that are interesting, fun, touching, and inspiring.
So let's me share some of them with you...

Have you ever wondered what happened to some of the Disney princesses after the movie?? Here's the story.

Awesome tents... I would LOVE to take one of these camping... I love the book one and the 'Get a room' one is a funny one

Career path... A public art project with two simple questions: "What I was little I want to be?" "Today I want to be?" What would your answer be?

Have you been doing too much pinning? (Or even too much computer work?) I think you need to stretch your neck... here is an exercise.

Ok this kid and the puppy dog is so cute!

Finding that life is too boring? Need to add a bit of drama to spice up your life? Just push the button!

Underground library.

I love this quote about photography.

There are some people who's first reaction to something like for example someone falling is to laugh... that would be me in most cases... especially this one!

Need a to give a apology to someone... try one of these.

Do You Really Want To Know?

Words are strong.
Three simple words like...
"Are you okay?"
"How are YOU?"
They hold strong power behind them.

Asked in the right way...
It can pull down walls,
And allow the truth to be told.

So many times people respond to those questions with what they thing people want to hear.

Instead of with the truth.
The honest, heartfelt answers.

When people ask me those questions
The first thing that comes into my mind is...

"Do you really want to know?"
"Do you want the blunt honest real truth?"
"Do you even care?"

Would you really want me to turn around and say...
Life is going ok, 
But at the moment I am struggling,
Things have been hard,
And I have been hanging on by a thread.
I could really do with a hug
Just distract me please.

From now on I am going to be honest.
So if you are a friend or will be a friend of mine in the future...
Please know one thing...
If you do know actually want to know...
Because you will get the honest truth from me.

Some days you will catch me on a good day,
But there are days where you may catch me on a bad day.
Just be prepared before you ask.

Actually care about me.
Cause there are days where I need someone to show me that they care.

I am not perfect, 
I make mistakes,
I struggle to trust,
I find it hard to let people in.
I push people away,
Because that is how I know how to cope with things,
When things get to hard to handle,
When things feel like they are crumbling around me.
People may not understand why I do things,
Heck most of the time even I don't know why,
But friends don't judge,
Friends forgive.

Enough rambling from me.
Thanks for reading.

Listening: Song that I have been loving of late has been this one 'Learn to Love again' by Lawson

Eating: Today I have really been craving watermelon... this is something I don't think that I have ever really craved before... but tomorrow I am going to go and buy a nice big one.

Drinking: Lately I have been addicted to two things, first one is water- this has been more so a large craving since moving to Brisbane, I can thank the hotter weather here for that one. The other drink is hot drinks, this has along really been in the past week, I do love my hot chocolate and herbal fruit teas. before I can having a tea though I do need to invest in a kettle.

Wearing: A recent purchase of mine has been my favourite thing to wear with pretty much every outfit has been my pocket watch necklace: here & here

Feeling: Frustrated. I am over not being able to do much with my wrist. That it get's worn out, sore, then painful soon afterwards. I am going to give treatment with my physio one more week, then I'll listen to my GP and head off to see a orthopaedic surgeon.

Weather: Finally the weather here in Brisbane has improved. After about what seems like about a month of rainy yucky cloudy days, today was clear skies, and bright sunshine.  Looking forward to winter though, I do like curling up on a cold winters day.

Wanting: Two things at the moment... I would love for my holidays to come sooner, and for me to get my blogging groove back... to do this though I would help if I got my butt into gear and actually hooked up the internet here rather than relying on the same amount of internet I have on my phone.

Needing: To get my butt into gear when it comes to fitness, I would really love to be able to run again, I miss running, it's the best way to clear your mind. And when my wrist is better I want to be able to box again, I love sparring, it's a good way to take out your frustrations.

Thinking: That as you can tell by the sparring and running that I really need to clear my head at the moment and to get my thinking right, over the past month and a half I have really struggled with my anxiety and panic attacks. *if you have never had a panic attack... think yourself extremely lucky!

Enjoying: The other week I purchased a couple of new books written by Elder Jeffrey R. Holland. Yesterday I started to read 'Broken Things To Mend' and wow, I have only read a couple of pages but he is an amazing author, if you have ever heard any other he's talks you can understand just how powerful of a speaker he is. I LOVE his books and can't wait to read more!
