God Påske!‏ (Norwegian Happy Easter!)

Dear All :)

This past week has been a really good one. Me and my comp pretty much
walked all over the entire city maybe two or three times throughout
the entire week and it was great :) Haha I hadn't really noticed how
much we'd walked until I woke up this morning and everything was way
stiff. Luckily the weather is nice and warm so it makes things more
comfortable while outside.

Anyway so back to why the past week has been so good.. I think I was
able to experience what you might call "a mighty change of heart."
Even though I've still had headaches or other challenges I have been
so happy. I feel like I was able to really get "lost in the work" and
it felt really good :) I don't even know how to explain it but it's
like a spiritual fire has been lit within me and I just can't get
enough of the gospel. The scriptures are so powerful and they give us
so much.

Yesterday they had a farewell program for one of the young men who's
going on his mission soon to the Salt Lake City, Utah mission. They
had some really good musical numbers. One was the EFY Medley "We'll
bring the world His truth/Sister's in Zion" and another really good
one was "In the Hollow of they Hand." I'm not quite sure who wrote
that one but it was definitely a keeper:) It feel's like such a short
time since I gave my "farewell" talk haha.

I'm grateful to hear that y'all are cheering for me :) I think I'm
finally starting to understand a bit more what it means to "Be still
and know that I am God." I don't think I quite got the whole "Be
still" part before but I think letting go of our own will and allowing
His to take its place has somewhat to do with it. Just a thought.

I am really starting to see and feel the
love for the people among whom I serve. It is so hard to put into words
but it's kind of like that feeling you get when after to come out of the temple, ya know it?
Heavenly Father has blessed me so much in the past few weeks :) Now it
doesn't even matter that I've had clenching problems or sinus problems
cuz everything else just feels too good. Ah it's fantastic :)
