Surgery

Tomorrow I am having surgery for an inguinal hernia, but I am prepared. Tonight I have found the true meaning of repentance and the Spirit. It started when I was typing a letter to Anya Young, because she is moving. I wanted to get it done before tomorrow, because tomorrow I will be incapacitated. However, I’m listening to my MIDI files, and it’s keeping Kjersti up. A large fight ensues, and I go to my room feeling horrid. It is then that I decide to pray with all my might, mind, and strength to ask forgiveness. Somehow, I am touched by the Spirit and I know I had been forgiven. So, I climb into bed, when I feel like I need to go apologize right that second to Kjersti. I go upstairs, and she apologizes too. It was good that I went upstairs, because my mom calls Brother Dahl and I get a priesthood blessing for my surgery tomorrow. Now I’m back in bed. I thank God with all my heart that He gave me forgiveness and that I could feel the Spirit tonight. Whatever happens at the hospital tomorrow, I know that I have God’s blessing, and that is all I need. That and Tylenol with Codeine. I’m thankful for this experience & I will treasure it forever. In the Name of Jesus Christ, our Savior and Redeemer, amen.
