This is all i have for now...

I love this. My mission prep teacher read it on the last day of class...I need to remember this

Between You and God
by Mother Theresa

People are often unreasonable, irrational, and self centered;
Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives;

Be kind anyway.
If you are successful, you will win some unfaithful friends and some genuine enemies;

Succeed anyway.
If you are honest and sincere people may deceive you;

Be honest and sincere anyway.
What you spend years creating others could destroy overnight;

Create anyway.
If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous;

Be happy anyway.
The good you do today, will be often forgotten;

Do good anyway.
Give the best you have, and it may never be enough;

Give your best anyway.
In the final analysis, it is between you and God.

It was never between you and them anyway.

Well, I'm almost done with my time as a Noteworthy Lady. It's a weird feeling. I've been a part of Noteworthy for 2 and a half years...and it feels like it's my identity. I think i'm going to have a bit of an identity crisis once it's all over. Hopefully i can still help out with Noteworthy for years to come, but my time actually performing in the group is almost over. I've had the best and worst past few years of my entire life, but one thing has remained constant and has helped me grow so much, and that is Noteworthy. I can't even imagine life without it. I know that I am moving on to more important things, but it's still a little sad to be leaving.

But on a happier note, The CD is out! and you can buy it on Itunes! It's called Defined, and it's amazing so you should purchase it. it now :)

This song has gotten me through a lot of rough times in Noteworthy and it's on the new cd:

Come, come, ye saints, no toil nor labor fear;
But with joy, wend your way.
Though hard to you this journey may appear,
Grace shall be as your day.
'Tis better far for us to strive
Our useless cares from us to drive;
Do this, and joy your hearts will swell
All is well! All is well!

Why should we mourn or think our lot is hard?
'Tis not so, all is right.
Why should we think to earn a great reward,
If we now shun the fight?
Gird up your loins; fresh courage take;
Our God will never us forsake,
And soon we'll have this tale to tell,
All is well! All is well!

We'll find the place which God for us prepared,
Far away in the West,
Where none shall come to hurt or make afraid;
There the saints will be blessed.
We'll make the air with music ring,
Shout praises to our God and King;
Above the rest these words we'll tell,
All is well! All is well!

And should we die before our journey's through,
Happy day! All is well!
We then are free from toil and sorrow, too;
With the just we shall dwell!
But if our lives are spared again
To see the saints their rest obtain,
O how we'll make this chorus swell,
All is well! All is well!

Life is Beautiful...all is well

For the past few days...

Since Courtney has been on the Sing Off again I can't get onto my email without having at least 10 new notifications about people commenting and subscribing to my Youtube page. This would usually be a great thing except EVERY comment I have received has been absolutely disgusting and I just end up deleting it. I'm just sick and tired of people posting inappropriate things on my videos and i'm almost ready to just delete them all because it's just gross.

Anyway i just needed to complain for a minute about how annoyed I am with it. That is all.

Life is Beautiful...but people sometimes ruin its beauty.

Oh Sara B.


There's a harvest each Saturday night
At the bars filled with perfume and hitching a ride
A place you can stand for one night and get gone
It's clear this conversation ain't' doing a thing
Cause these boys only listen to me when i sing
And i don't feel like singing tonight
All the same songs

Here in these deep city lights
Girl could get lost tonight
I'm finding every reason to be gone
Nothing here to hold on to
Could i hold you?

The situation's always the same
You got your wolves in their clothes whispering Hollywood's name
Stealing gold from the silver they see
But it's not me

Here in these deep city lights
Girl could get lost tonight
I'm finding every reason to be gone
There's nothing here to hold on to
Could i hold you?

Calling out somebody save me i feel like i'm fading away
Am i gone?
Calling out somebody save me i feel like i'm fading

In these deep city lights
Girl could get lost tonight
I'm finding every reason to be gone
There's nothing here to hold on to
Could i hold on to you?

Life is beautiful...even when you have to dig deep to find that beauty.

Seeing as BYU is an LDS school...

You would think they would have more sympathy for students who need to go home a semester before their mission to make money to actually be able to go on the mission...but no, they discontinue you if you leave before you actually have your mission call, and then when you come back you have to reapply, a pretty risky move i'd say. And even worse they won't let you continue at home doing independent study while you work.
Don't get me wrong, BYU is great, but some people just can't afford to pay a million dollars for books AND be able to help pay for their mission, which i would really like to be able to do.
I need to find a class that's .5 credits that i could do from home NOT through independent study...hmmmmm any ideas?

Sometimes the hardest thing and the right thing are the Same

Have you ever noticed that there always seems to be a lot of factors that get in the way of doing something that you know is right? Whether it be money, or people, or your own emotions, there's just always something getting in the way.
No matter how hard we try, or how good our intentions are there are always trials that we find a long the way. Sometimes i just wish that doing the right thing could be a little easier; but then again, i guess it wouldn't be as rewarding if it was easy.

But this is all i know, if we know something is right then we need to work for it. No matter how much we have to sacrifice, or how hard it is, when you know something is right you have to go for it. Because our Heavenly Father didn't put us on the Earth to fail. There is always a way to accomplish what we know is right. No giving up allowed.

"Sometimes the hardest thing, and the right thing are the same"

Life is Beautiful
