Favorite pioneer song

In honor of Pioneer Day (which I realized was 2 days ago)

This is my absolute favorite pioneer song. It has had a special place in my heart since EFY (which turned me around at a time when I wasn't making the best decisions for my life. I will always be grateful for Mandy Fowers for making me go with her) and a trek I went on in the same summer. I truly got to understand and love the lyrics. It gives me chills every time it is sung now. So amazing.

Here, enjoy it with me:

Come, Come, Ye Saints

Come, come, ye saints, no toil nor labor fear;
But with joy wend your way.
Though hard to you this journey may appear,
Grace shall be as your day.
Tis better far for us to strive

Our useless cares from us to drive;
Do this, and joy your hearts will swell -
All is well! All is well!

Why should we mourn or think our lot is hard?
'Tis not so; all is right.

Why should we think to earn a great reward
If we now shun the fight?
Gird up your loins; fresh courage take.
Our God will never us forsake;
And soon we'll have this tale to tell-
All is well! All is well!

We'll find the place which God for us prepared,
Far away, in the West ,
Where none shall come to hurt or make afraid;
There the saints, will be blessed.
We'll make the air, with music ring,
Shout praises to our God and King;
Above the rest these words we'll tell -
All is well! All is well!

And should we die before our journey's through,
Happy day! All is well!

We then are free from toil and sorrow, too;
With the just we shall dwell!
But if our lives are spared again
To see the Saints their rest obtain,
Oh, how we'll make this chorus swell-
All is well! All is well!

Yeah, it's pretty great!

Loves, loves, and more loves!!!

Breaking News! ;)

BREAKING NEWS!! The Pity Train has just derailed at the intersection of Suck It Up & Move On, and crashed into We All Have Problems, before coming to a complete stop at Get Over It. Reporting LIVE from Quitchur cryin.

If you like this, re-post it. If you don't, suck it up Buttercup, life doesn't revolve around you!

I saw this today, and thought it was pretty funny.
I just had to share it! :)
Some times I need the reminder too.
No one likes a pity party, that's why they are always a party of one.

Much love for you all!!!

Fantastic changes!

Right after my post saying I'm going to be able to post again, life got a little nuts! So, it ended up being a bit of a lie. I won't have as much time on my hands anymore, but I'll post when I can.
The reason I won't have time on my hands to spare anymore is because....after two years of trying and trying.... lots of frustration, tears, and coveting those who it came so easily to.... I am FINALLY working at a new job! :)
I am now an Office Manager!!!! Or, basically a glorified secretary with a side of accounts receivable. I love it. It's pretty perfect for me right now. I work with some great people who are easy to get a long with. I'm actually appreciated and complimented for doing a good job. I already got a raise that I wasn't supposed to get till I worked there for 3 months. I got it after 1 week. (Please pardon my bragging. I'm just not used to this) I work set hours now, which is sooooo nice! 9-5:3o Monday-Friday with an hour break whenever I want. I thought it might be a little difficult working 8 hour days everyday, when before it was rare to get 8 hours and the days I did work that long were so hard. Turns out, when you enjoy your job, the day goes by fast everyday.
I'm so much happier now (Aaron says he notices it all the time. Poor guy is a trooper, putting up with me being mad all the time after work)! This job is the opposite from my last job in every way, and that is why it is so good. Man, I sure do love change! This was such a huge blessing in my life, and I'm very grateful for it.
Thank you to everyone who helped, or tried to help me get a new job. Thank you for understanding.

There is a lot more going on in our life's that I would like to post about, but I'm trying not to do super long posts any more. That's hard when I don't have time to post, but if you want to know what is going on, you can always call me :)

That is all.
Much love for you all!
