So Grateful

I am so grateful for the man I married.  I am grateful I can have him forever, and we can grow together.

When I was on my mission, I was worried about my future, and about marrying the right man.  I didn't understand faith very well.  At the beginning of my mission, when I was having a particularly hard time focusing my heart, I begged for help from my Heavenly Father.  I promised Him that I would give all my heart to missionary work, if he would please protect my future.  

I gave everything I had in Chile.  Initially, I probably worked hard because I needed blessings, and it was the only way I knew how to deserve them.  Later, though, I really grew to love my Heavenly Father, and to have a sincere desire to serve Him.  I learned that there was nothing I could do - no amount of hard work - that would make me eligible for the blessings He had already given me.  I would always be a debtor.

Whether I deserved it or not, however, my Heavenly Father truly did protect my future - in ways that I never would have known to want myself.  He has provided perfectly.  

I am so grateful for a good husband, and a happy little life.
