“And all saints who..walk in obedience to the commandments shall find wisdom and great treasures of knowledge, even hidden treasures”
-Doctrine & Covenants 89: 18-19
“In the quiet heart is hidden, sorrow that the eye can’t see.”
-Lord, I would follow thee (Hymn # 220)
What things do YOU have hidden?
The $2.5 million fine imposed on disgraced racist Donald Sterling is very troubling. The fact that the dollar amount is a drop in the bucket for a filthy rich coward is of no relevance.
And don’t you DARE accuse me of defending or condoning this man.
Freedom of speech, anyone??
“I disapprove of what you say,
but I will defend to the death your right to say it.”
Even abhorrent racists
have a right to freedom of speech.
“For they [the Anti-Nephi-Lehites] became a righteous people, for they did lay down their weapons of rebellion.”
-Alma 23:7 (in the Book of Mormon)
“We’re gonna get it right if you lay your weapons down.”
What weapons can YOU lay down?
“All seems infected that the infected spy,
As all looks yellow to the jaundiced eye.”
(English poet; Father of modern satire)
When your vision is cloudy, it’s near impossible to focus on anything else. It’s hard to be see color when your lenses are stained. When something’s wrong, all seems wrong.

“I am beautiful because I’m not afraid to answer the front door without makeup.”
-Kath Wilk (ME!)
“Your beauty’s deeper than the makeup.”
-Hunter Hayes (my latest obsession)
This is for the campaign I was part of a few years ago for BYU Women’s Services and resources.
YOU DON’T NEED MAKEUP TO BE BEAUTIFUL, LADIES!
(but still, I deeply ❤ it)
“I loved you, gray sweatpants, no makeup.”
-J. Mayer (who else?)
PS. After reviewing this post, I realize I have 3 pictures of myself. That’s kind of a lot. Sorry if this seems vain. But whatevz, it is my blog after all.
“And in nothing doth man offend God, or against none is his wrath kindled, save those who confess not his hand in all things…”

No offense to any Blogspot users out there, but WordPress is seriously superior!
And I had a blogspot blog once upon a time, so I’m not just speculating!
Don’t slog when writing a blog.
Use the best; use WordPress!
