For those of you that have sat through my depressing posts this last week, thanks for putting up with me. and for those who left some sweet comments, thank you for helping me. you really did. In the midst of this trial i had an experience that brought such peace to my heart and allowed me to start looking up. I was in a conversation that could have been messy, dramatic, emotional, even potentially spiteful, and against all odds walked away with a feeling of comfort. That moment we were surrounded by Gods love. It was almost tangible. We noted that those moments that you never want to end, that you just want sit and soak in, are manifestations of His presence. Those moments are glimpses into the eternities.  That has been what i’ve sought this week. more of those moments. in the process of getting to them, i’ve begun to […]

a break in the clouds.

And just like that, the storm has passed. Against all odds, yesterday was one of my favorites.  I have been taken a back by the sheer amount of people who actually care, thank you for that. I had several really neat experiences which brought me clarity and comfort, and one specifically that strengthened my faith far greater than i would have ever expected it to. A new day is here, along with a new perspective and all because God is good, and so are people. later today i’ll post some pictures that i’m also really happy about 🙂

Seriously felt like i was in a fairy tale, i’ll post some pictures at the bottom of this post. wow.-shopping at Urban Outfitters.-being a Gapaholic-The shins. Today i decided to listen to the mood of music that i WANTED to be in. rather than the mood that i was in, which was totally a Civil Wars mood.-the amount of frozen yogurt joints in provo -my roommates making me cookies cause they had a feeling this weekend was hard for me. not so delicious: -farting audible in the hallway waiting for class to start and looking around and realizing i have no one to blame it on… -having realizations about my heart i never knew existed -shading. i’m apparently really awful at this. hopefully it’s not my downfall in my drawing […]

i’m not dead yet.

Hey there all you people! So I almost decided to start from scratch and create a whole new blog, but I decided to stick with what I had and just change the title. So this is a new post! Oh I bet you’re so excited, you have nothing else to do but read about Emma Vidmars life? k cool, I was hoping you’d say that. Come on in, let me tell you what’s up. First things first, I’m still alive and creepin, no worries there. Lets cover all the basics. Boys, Work, Church, Friends, and Future. Sounds like a good idea? I knew you’d agree. So here we go! Boys. Oh boy…the boy situation. Bet you would be surprised if I said it was non-existent? K good. Same old story. Always in the friend zone. The past few months have been pretty fun, I’ve had a few little fetus crushes […]

charity.

So i’m winding down my last semester of my freshman year here at BYU. It’s been 10 months since I came to this place. Wow. So much has happened! I’ve also grown so incredibly much. One thing that I am so incredibly grateful for is the chance i’ve had to truly study the Book of Mormon. This past week we’ve been learning a lot about Charity, so here’s a breakdown. Charity is the pure love of Christ. Moroni 7:47 says just that!“Charity is the pure love of Christ, and it endureth forever; and whoso is found possessed of it at the last day, it shall be well with him” Charity is a gift of the Spirit. Meaning we can’t do it on our own! Sounds weird huh?Are you asking “Isn’t charity just doing nice things?”Actually, it’s not! thats called service! Charity is being able to see poeple as God sees […]
