Like a sunrise from a lonely night…

“Like a sunrise from a lonely night…”
-Hunter Hayes 

“Weeping may endure for a night,
but joy cometh in the morning.”
-Psalm 30:5

“Each of us will have our own Fridays—those days when the universe itself seems shattered and the shards of our world lie littered about us in pieces…But I testify to you in the name of the One who conquered death—Sunday will come. In the darkness of our sorrow, Sunday will come.”
-Joseph Wirthlin (of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints; deceased)

My heart is heaviest in the night
But I know the morning brings new light
-KatieWilk (ME!)

How you know the Mormon Church is true.

If the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints weren’t true, 

19 year old boys would have ruined it a long time ago.

A Poem on the Unfortunate Trend of Jorts

Image

A Poem on the Unfortunate Trend of Jorts (jean shorts for males):
..
If a guy wears jorts
he should go to court
and serve some time
for his fashion crime
..
Jorts are terrible
Absolutely unbearable
Not tryin’ to be unkind,
but if you think they’re ok, you’re blind
..
No one should be keen
on shorts that are jean
To conclude this poem, I’ll be short
Men, PLEASE steer clear of those hideous jorts!

 

Nevertheless, ‘The Lord looketh upon the heart” (1st Samuel 16:7)

Sing out pretty, and sing out clear. But you’re not the only one I wanna hear!

Image

You know those people who are (semi) professional singers/ actors/ actresses/ performers who sing all loud and dramatically in Church? Yeah, I find it pretty obnoxious. You’re not on stage or at an audition, so tone it down a bit, wouldja? And seriously, we all know you’re into performing. No need to brag or marvel at the sound of your own voice. Please stop immediately. Learn to blend in a bit.


Sing out pretty, and sing out clear,
But you’re not the only one I wanna hear!


PS: I am friends with plenty of musical/theater people who don’t do this. They know when to turn on the Broadway, and when to be more subtle. This isn’t a diss to those kind of people. Just a diss to the annoying people.
