A little Understanding?
So today at church one of the bishopric members came up to me and said, "come sit down and lets talk. " My first reaction was "Oh no, not a third calling!" well he really did just want to talk. I have been in the process of getting mission papers and he asked me that how it was going. I told him that its been slow and that it is getting there. Then he asked another question as if he was trying to clarify something, "So are you dating anyone?" ouch. Well the plain and simple fact is that Im not and never really have. He then continued to say watch you'll find someone and not go on a mission. You'll get married instead. At this point in my head im thinking, "yeah right!" on the other hand another part of me started thinking that would be nice and i could live with that. Well here is another piece of the puzzle. Life has been rough for me lately and I seem to be changing in behavior and habit. I know that I have to change back to my old self just more mature in some areas so that I can go on a mission/get married. But here is my question; How come every time a girl gets ready to go on a mission, most people decide to throw the "you'll get married instead" line out there? It drives me crazy because obviously the girl is at a time in her life where that is not going to happen. Yes sometimes it does happen granted but not always. We all do want to get married just at the right time. Anyway if anyone has an answer please help me out.
