There is a lot of pain in our world,


Image

but there is a lot of joy, too.

Lyrics here

The sky is the limit and I just wanna float.

Free as a spirit on a journey of hope!

Sometimes telling the truth is terribly painful, uncomfortable, embarrassing, and inconvenient,

Image

BUT IT HAS TO HAPPEN!

Image

“The truth will set you free”

~John 8:23

Image

“The truth can be ugly beyond imagination,

but concerning such topics as abuse, we simply CANNOT ignore it.

It may set others free as well.  Figuratively and literally.”

READERS:

How do these principles/ideas apply to YOU?

And I know that they do somehow.

Truth.

And now I’m about to say something that

I often wish I could shout fiddle from the rooftops.

Are you listening?

Okay, here I go:

“I DON’T ANSWER TO ANYBODY,

AND IT’S A LOVELY, LOVELY FEELING!”

There are of course limits to this philosophy, because I do represent Christ,

I believe that women can be sexy,

but also ought to maintain class and (line of) propriety,

Screen shot 2013-08-31 at 7.52.10 PM

and also I am a role model.

Screen shot 2013-08-31 at 7.33.13 PM

But still “I do what I want!”

Katherine, get back to John Mayer…

And now Lightn’ing strikes for that thunderbolt of blasphemy

for comparing myself to one of the greatest guitarists/poets of all time…

But allow me to quote from him once again:

“I LOOK GOOD CUZ I FEEL GOOD!”

4 John Mayer lyrics/links/quotations in one post.  Excellent job, sweet self…

Oh, yah, not only do KW and JM share fashion blunders, we also share writing blunders.  Check it out here. 

PS.  Even if your outfits are occasionally a little whacky, you can still be as cool as me.

“It’s true.  It’s true.  I choose you! (says Sara Bareilles). 

To have an awesome day!

Now GO!

Go fall in love.

Go change the world.

Go help an old lady move.

Go help her carry her groceries.

Go clean your car, (that’s what I need to do).

I need to go do my hair, and a few other things…

Screen shot 2013-08-31 at 8.09.50 PM

I.  Choose.  You.

I don’t love it when people watch R-rated movies, but I’ve watched a few in my life.

Back to the original topic as explicated in my title:  I have another great blog post brewin’ about the topic of Mormons /R-rated movies/ Katherine.  But for now, let me just say this:

LDS leaders have long counseled it’s members to be selective about their choice of media.  They have even specifically cautioned to avoid R-rated movies.  However, as always has been and always will be, individual agency is acknowledged and respectedJust be smart, ok?   

(queue less formal voice here:)

But just so you know, I made a deal with Aphrodite.  If any of my readers watch R-rated movies, within 10 days she will strike you with a thunderbolt of blasphemy.  Plus why do you need to watch films anyways?  I know a GREAT blog you can read for entertainment, spiritual nourishment, and ugly pictures of a beautiful girl…

Oh, and one final thought.  After reviewing the video (all good writers review their work), I realized I mentioned I’m not a scientist.  Which I’m not for the most part.  But I still like the song, particularly when Natasha sings it:

Also, I was right about Potassium.

She’s Got a Way

Image

She’s got a light around her

and everywhere she goes a million dreams of love surround her.

Yes, have seen the Billy Joel musical “Movin’ Out.”  It was good until the kinky dancing started (during this song if I remember correctly), and we all felt REALLY uncomfortable.  I’m all for the first amendment and the freedom of speech AND the freedom of dance, but keep your moves clean, ya’ll!

Not as bad as it sounds…

jesus-christ_dDpJM_1359374588

I have compared this blog to Christ.  That may sound a bit sacriligious, but just a minute, let me explain before you excommunicate me.  First of all, my discovery of identity (as articulated in my core beliefs) does not replace my faith.  It merely enhances and diversifies my character.  So yes I still believe in the literal Christ.  However, this blog has given me freedom, expression, joy, and immortality. And it helped rescue me from a dark place.  Does that not sound like Christ?  So I think I’m safe from the thunderbolts of blasphemy 🙂

Look a little closer

Seems like a picture of nothing, right?

Wrong.  Look a little closer,

ordinary picture green light

and ponder all they represent.
