Enough Already








Who's on the Lord's side who?


Is there anyone out there that is fed up with the news media, television in general, or talk radio? I have had to just turn it off. I find myself just wanting to watch old classic movies or reading a good book, or looking at decorating magazines. If I have to hear our NEW Pres. of the good ole USA try and sell his socialism plan one more time I think I will scream. I know it is important to be up with current events, but all of this mess with the economy is craziness. Have you noticed how the Ensign this month is all about self-reliance, preparedness, and having the oil in our lamps full. I love the scriptures, only by trusting in the Lord will we find peace. I am so grateful for the gospel, I think as time goes on, all of us, if we ask for it will have many missionary experiences. The signs of the times, as many say, are all around us. I hope as we all live each day we pray to be a good influence, I know all of you do, what great examples you all are to me. You can just tell how strong these little spirits that are coming to our homes now are. Definitely saturday warriors! I am excited for Jori, this year she is going to be in the Easter pageant, as a birth angel. She is excited too. A chance to participate in such a great program and feel the spirit so strong each night will be amazing. Let us all treasure our blessings, we live in an exciting time, the best of times and the worst of times..... now that I have vented I feel better. I am anxious for general conference. Let us stay close. I love you all.

I hear ya, Lucille. I hate to admit it but I kinda like the bubble of Rexburg that I'm living in. I know it's bad to want to ignore the world but it makes my life so much easier. I can just focus on my family and kind of tune out the noise. I know it's a sheltered environment (our newspaper is going down to only 3 days a week!) and I worry if it is the right thing for my kids but sometimes it's nice to not have to worry SO much.

Uhg! The news, we just turn it off now too and listen to good music or something. We are in for some scary times, thank goodness we know what to make of it all, this gives me peace. You are the best blogger ever!

Aunt Lucille,

I love the style of your blog, its very classy! If I could make a comparison with the government today I would compare it to the Zoramites upon the Rameumptom telling God how great they are, all the while leading themselves straight to hell! While thinking about my latest blog post I remembered the first time I met you and Randy and Jill. It was at Rosa's on Conference Saturday between sessions, I was so nervous, but you were so nice. I remeber that Randy still was wearing his collar from his neck injury. I sure enjoy reading your posts, you always make me feel the desire to do more! Love ya, Kris

I am very worried, I try not to be but I can't help it. Dan and I like to think how lovely life would have been with Romney. We know that if we keep paying our tithing and doing what we are supposed to be doing we will be blessed. I am always excited when you have a new post, I love you!

Jill said...

I miss you!

Todd and Jacy Skouson said...

I just found your blog! I love it!!! Especially the last two posts:). I needed to hear that one about the donuts. Even though I completely agree and get it, I have been making some dramatic changes all in the name of better health and although that's important, I need to remember not to get obsessed:).
I completely echo all of you comments on Obama too!
Hey, if you're interested, I'd love to invite you to my blog, let me know...

Fourth Nephi Chapter 1

2 And it came to pass in the thirty and sixth year, the people were all converted unto the Lord, upon all the face of the land, both Nephites and Lamanites, and there were no contentions and disputations among them, and every man did deal justly one with another.
3 And they had all things common among them; therefore there were not rich and poor, bond and free, but they were all made free, and partakers of the heavenly gift.

16 And there were no envyings, nor strifes, nor tumults, nor whoredoms, nor lyings, nor murders, nor any manner of lasciviousness; and surely there could not be a happier people among all the people who had been created by the hand of God.
17 There were no robbers, nor murderers, neither were there Lamanites, nor any manner of -ites; but they were in one, the children of Christ, and heirs to the kingdom of God.

OK I realise I'm probally going to get kicked out of Zion for saying this.....but...maybe because I'm a convert I look at things from a diffrent perspective. Here goes..... I hear everyone complaining about socialism and say that is what the President is striving for or leading us to. But isn't that what we be living in the millennium? Are we all going to turn to our nieghbors when we are asked to live the law of consecration and say to them "hey isn't this socialisim"? I know it will be a diffrent situation with it being overseen by Jesus himself but it just seem funny to me that the most outspoken group about this issue is the Mormons. I for one being hit hard by this economy would jump at the chance to live the law of consecration. Bring it on baby. Isn't that what we all want???
