Recently I’ve started to panic about life after graduation. Who knows where we’ll be? Who knows if Jarom will be able to find a job at all? I play out unlikely but worrisome scenarios in my head, growing more and more desperate as I go on.

Last night I went to bed at 8. Well, at 8 I laid down in bed and cried because I was worried about being broke and hopeless later this year. Then I prayed and pleaded for things to somehow work out. Then I went to sleep.

Today we got Jarom’s W-2 in the mail and I sat down to file our taxes. And it turns out we should be getting a hefty refund, enough to see us through at least 5 months with no other income. It’s a perfect safety net. Perfect timing. And really, an answer to a prayer.

    Beautiful. What a beautiful answer.

    I love the talk “But If Not” by Dennis E. Simmons from the April 2004 General Conference. Sometimes I’ve wanted to (ok, I DID) scream and yell and KICK SOMETHING…but I do believe that “all things work together for good to them that love God.” (Romans 8:28, 35-39) Good luck!

Be opinionated! We certainly are.
