Seasons change and . . .

So do I.

I've thought a lot lately of how I've changed. Who I am. Who I am becoming.

I'm certainly not as funny as I used to be.
My sarcasm has faded and I don't enjoy laughing at the expense of others.

My social life has dwindled significantly.
I choose to spend my time learning, serving, building solid relationships and cultivating
talents.

It's rare to find myself performing on a stage these days.
The adrenaline of fame really gets to me. Satan knows it. I write and record to inspire.

The common theme I have pulled from the above changes can be summed in a few words.

I love my Savior.
He is my priority.

The closer I draw to my loving Father in Heaven, the more compassion and love I have for the people in my life. I don't care what decisions you make, have made, or will make. I would give anything for people to feel the way I feel. I need no compliments, nods of approval, or other forms of recognition. The greatest compliment of all: for you to do all you can to live for Him.

My vocabulary is limited to express my truest feelings.

But this sense of knowing will set you free. So fight for it.
