Another uber personal post? Yes, Yes, it is.
I've had several very spiritual experiences lately. I am pretty much convinced it has to do with my new calling in the Young Women. Hiding out in Primary for 8 years was pretty appealing. Cary and I had taught every age group and I had served as a leader for scouts as well as activity day girls. We were content. We had a routine and it was comfortable. We were comfortable.
That is, until that fateful mild winter day when I was accosted outside my front door and asked to serve as a Young Women's leader. One of the leaders in our ward is a dear friend and I reckon he was designated to talk to me.
Change is not my friend!
I did not want to not have Cary aka my security blanket with me and I sure didn't want to be alone as I muddled through something completely new and foreign to me.
Yeah, I was full of a lot of hot air and did, in fact, accept the calling.
If God asks you to do something, you do it. No?
Have you have had the faith to do something even though you were scared out of your mind?
I wasn't sure that I did. To some it may seem like a minor change, something not worth all the fuss that I was making. Perhaps. Since my baptism in 2002, I have never, before now, held a calling in our church without Cary. We were a pair! A Team! A well-oiled machine!
Also, I'm a big chicken.
But, here I am, 2 months later, a leader for the Beehives, taught 2 solo lessons, AND I've been blessed with these amazingly wonderful spiritual experiences.
I've been able to grow my testimony. I've had so many confirmations that this is were I am supposed to be, that I am somewhat ashamed I was such a punk about it all in the first place.
What was I thinking?
