Some people cling to their pride because it’s all they have.
All my pride is all that I have…
Pride is what you had, baby girl I’m what you have!
and NOT about pride.
(More to come on these ideas)
“Make sure your disagreements, arguments, and even your wars
are about truth and NOT about pride.”
PS. That first picture is of Ulysses S. Grant and General Robert E Lee. It depicts the Confederate South’s official surrender of the Civil War at Appomattox Court House in Virginia. Virginia was a VERY important location in this VERY important American War. I also know of a VERY cool girl who is from Virginia.
for FAILURE in the home.
~LDS President David O. Mckay
And some broken bones and a broken home are all he’ll have to show.
LINE OF PROPRIETY
myth vs. experience
Let me again express that I never intend to be judgmental or unkind to anyone, not even concerning such individuals as Charlie Sheen (Although truthfully it’s hard NOT to judge such a troubled man). I wish to emphasize that all of us are children of God. ALL OF US. But I just can’t help but think of how badly Mr. Sheen needs Christ. I mean, we all do, but for some people, it is more obvious and drastically evident, know what I’m sayin’?
“No other success can compensate for failure in the home.”
(readers, remember that quote por favor. it’s totez important)
I am not an official spokesperson or representative of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. (But check out more about Michael Otterson here-he’s one of my faves) But I still do believe it is important (AND GREATLY DESIRE!) to stand as a witness of God, even, and especially when it comes to this blog.
Now I am not perfect by any stretch.
And is there sometimes a bit of possible tension between my 3 fold identity of Mormon, woman, and human?
But has there ever been a clash that I believe could
hurt the image of the Church or cause major confusion?
And if there ever was, I don’t believe I would expose it, at least not completely.
Plus it’s not like I’m super famous anyways so even if I did I’m not sure anyone would care. 🙂
it is from this wonderful waving woman…)
love this song, it reminds me of Fiji. It will change your life.
LISTEN TO IT!
Girl, get back to your thesis
ANYWAYS, just wanted to express that I am conscious of the fact that this blog in some small way represents not only myself, not only my family, not only my friends, not only the LDS Church, but also Christ himself.
Is that blasphemous or arrogant? No way, Jose. Peace out!
PS. I’d give my bangs (first picture!) a B+ that day.
What are you a witness of?
And please don’t stop reading my blog because I
ended that last sentence with a preposition…
Good problem to have, I’d say.
SOME MONEY SO FAR…but not a ton 🙂
I WANT YOU TO BE PART OF MY BLOG! I am all about collaboration: musical, writing, business, product review, food, sharing of religious beliefs, etc. No promises, but as long as I feel like it represents myself, my family, my friends, and the Lord well, I’m up to discuss it. Dead serious. email@example.com
but I pride myself on my honesty AND on my class. I also pride myself on my humility. Oh wait…..
“Looking for a better way to get up out of bed
Instead of getting on the Internet and checking a new hit”
“little bit of humble, little bit of cautious”
#this song is about as near to perfection as one can get…
#still wouldn’t hate a Webby 🙂
#just barely over 4,000 hits…in 20 countries…in 11 days-LITERALLY!
#pride is the downfall of civilizations
# I STILL DO OTHER STUFF, PEOPLE! sometimes…
#still no money, but have made strides in that direction 🙂
and vice versa.
PS. Notice how I carefully avoided the troublesome word “pride” (and all it’s variations). Will blog about that soon. But for now, check out this land-mark talk on the subject:
The other day I ran out of gas and had to walk to a gas station. I took my red gas can, which holds a near permanent residence in the back of my car. Along the way I met 2 nice young men who accompanied me. (one of them talked to me, while one took pictures) Darn, they were cute, I wish it had been one of those days when I hadn’t looked like this, but of course that never stops me from socializing.
Now readers, I know that I pride myself in not censoring ugly pictures of myself. But as far as my face in this last one goes, even I have my standards.
