I just got out of the shower.
Not something I typically do at 11:00 PM.

I taught class over at Center Stage and then went and practiced with the BYU breakdance club and then went home.

There are 2 ways this scenario could play out:

Single Kyle:
Goes home. Stops @ Del Taco on the way to buy 6 soft tacos. (They’re only $.39 each!) After getting home he eats food while watching a TV show. (any show will do) Then he drinks a TON of juice. (not a big water guy) Finally he brushes his teeth says a prayer and calls it a night. (If he’s really tired he just sleeps in his clothes)

Married Kyle:
Drives straight home to see wife. Prays food will be available upon arrival. (Leah is amazing, there was a pizza waiting in the oven for me) Eats quickly. Then hits the shower. Puts on clean clothes. Brushes teeth. Reads scriptures with wife. Says a prayer and then calls it a night.

I don’t feel like there have been any really big changes since being married. It seems like being married is just a lot of little things that you do a little differently than before – typically for the better (I think). Although I don’t think anyone will argue that I am worse off for taking a shower after 4 hours of dancing.

“But if he wash them not, nor bathe his flesh; then he shall bear his iniquity.” (Leviticus 17:16)

? What are some small changes you have made since being married?

the interview.

I’m less than two weeks away from getting married.

That means that tonights interview was with the Bishop!
Oh Yeah!

There is something about interviews that has always made me a little uneasy. (I attribute this to my sliding scale of obedience)
Even when I have been on my best behavior I’ve always been a little nervous going into interviews.

I feel like there is always something else I could or should be doing better. So when they I get asked if I feel worthy to go to the temple I always have a little hesitation in my gut. I could try my very hardest and still come up short of perfect cleanliness.

“…and no unclean thing can dwell with God…” (1 Nephi 10:21)

So, of course there is always this tiny lingering feeling of unworthiness.

I’m not sure I’ll ever get past that. I may never feel like I am totally clean and ready to just be in His presence.

Well, the Bishops interview is done – now there is just the Stake President on Sunday!

? Do you ever feel like you are 100% clean?
