Hannah Originally uploaded by shaneguymon.
Here are some new photos of Hannah from this weekend which also happened to be my birthday. So Happy birthday to me, I am now the ripe ol' age of 26 which brings me on a down hill slope towards 30. I can already feel it in my back. Although in my mind, and my heart I still think I'm 18, and some people would say my face would give a good arguement, especially since most people I run into think I'm either in High school or just graduated. Anyways I hope you enjoy the photos, if you click on the one to the side, it should take you to a set of pictures. I'll be adding more in the near future, because I really need to get my flickr account back up, I've been neglecting it, and it is really awesome when you get into it and really see how it works, and all that you can do with it.

I stare aimlessly watching a ceiling fan spin round and round, I roll over to the side kicking my feet off the bed as I turn my body smoothly into a sitting position with my feet softly touching the carpet. My eyes quickly scan the dark room to gather my surroundings, and soon I gather myself together enough to lift myself completely from the bed, and somehow I still feel weightless as I make my way into the closet and grab some socks and shoes along with a cool shirt to wear. I sit myself back down onto the bed slowly and slide my socks and shoes onto my feet, and tie my shoes up tightly. I get into my car and take turn on the radio, the length of the drive seems shorter than usual as I reach my destination and as soon as I open my car door I can immediately hear the sound of squeaking shoes, and a bouncing ball. As I enter the gym it seems as though everyone knows my name, and they all speak highly of my abilities to play the game. Suddenly the feelings of having to live up to their remarks enter my mind and sinks deep into my chest. I step out onto the floor and each step I take is as though I am walking on the moon. So as I start to dribble and make a move it is slow, and hard, and I become lifted up into the air slowly rising and floating. Everyone else seems to be able to move about as a normal person would. I grow frustrated with this, as I am unable to get to the basket. I begin to shoot the ball, only every shot ends up being short no matter how much effort I put into heaving the ball towards the basket. Each step I take leaves me floating into the air and I try and try to force myself to stay on the ground. Soon the air is filled with counter arguments refuting all the positive remarks referring to me. Then the excuses begin raining down drenching everyone on the floor, until I my frustrations grow.

I stare aimlessly watching a ceiling fan spin round and round, mundanely spinning in circles in a dark room. Throwing shadows on the wall that grow in huge proportions as they stretch forth across the four walls. Soon I began to feel the weight of my body and the softness of the sheets against me, and the sound of my cell phone beeping beside me slowly forces its way through my ears into my brain.

Sometimes I have to remind myself that right is not always easy. It has been said, "Enter ye in at the strait gate; for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, which leadeth to destruction, and many there be who go in there at; Because strait is the agate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it."1

Many times when life gets hard and difficult I begin to get discouraged that perhaps I have erred, and perhaps I have made some wrong choice, or have sinned. Then I have to remind myself that the right choice is not always the easy choice. What does that exactly mean, well it means that trials, hardships, obstacles, struggles, and tribulation are not in any way signs of sinning, nor is it a punishment.

We are all here on this earth to learn and grow, and the only way to learn and grow is through struggle, and pain. I read something the other day, I've read it many times before, but it was inspiring to read this last time, "My son, peace be unto thy soul; thine adversity and thine afflictions shall be but a small moment; And then, if thou endure it well, God shall exalt thee on high; thou shalt triumph over all thy foes."2

No one's life is easy, and all too often I get caught up in the belief that if I had more money then I would be happy, and ok, or if I had two cars, or if I had a house to call a home. Although all of these would be great comforts they in know way ensure mine, or anyone else's happiness.

Am I idlely wasting away my days with blind faith in God, is my trust in him in vain because of my slothfulness? I would fight the fight that my efforts are in the eternal progression of my soul, and I am in a constant battle to improve, and be perfected. It is a long and slow battle, but I feel that each and every day I am making the small steps in the right directions. Sure I slip and fall throughout my journey.

It is funny I was explaining it to a friend the other day, and the best I could do was to compare it to math, which I am terrible at, but it was the best comparison I could come up with to illustrate life. You see first you need to learn the formula, to figure out the problems of life. Once you figure out the formula you study it. However even if you have a great knowledge of the functionality of the formula many times you will still get the wrong answer. So in life I can honestly say that I know the formula, yet still many times I get the wrong answer. Whether it be out of pride in my knowledge in the formula, to where I try to speed through the problem, and stumble and fall, or whether I grow lazy, and carelessly fall to the way side, regardless of the reasoning I still get the wrong answer.
