Why do some people cling to their pride?

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!

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.

Dear Readers:

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’?

“I will stand as a WITNESS of God at all times, and in all things, and in all places.”

Screen shot 2013-08-03 at 11.20.58 AMThis was a significant part of the theme I would state every Sunday in Young Women’s.  It comes from this passage in the Book of Mormon.

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.

Screen shot 2013-09-02 at 4.05.18 PMYes!  (hard to believe I know…)

Screen shot 2013-09-02 at 4.07.21 PM(“um,” I will continue, thanks John…)

And is there sometimes a bit of possible tension between my 3 fold identity of Mormon, woman, and human?

Absolutely. 

But has there ever been a clash that I believe could

hurt the image of the Church or cause major confusion?

No. 

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.  🙂

I’m only one voice in a million, but you ain’t takin’ that from me!

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.

Christ!

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…

My list of countries is so long that they won’t all fit in one screenshot.

Good problem to have, I’d say.

SOME MONEY SO FAR…but not a ton 🙂

Don’t want to get into that whole pride cycle thing described in the Book of Mormon.  Although I AM already a Lamanite, right?

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.  katherineannewilkinson@gmail.com

Some writers pride themselves on their honesty…

but I pride myself on my honesty AND on my class.  I also pride myself on my humility.  Oh wait…..

What’s the exact difference between “pride” and “dignity”?

Screen shot 2013-08-04 at 1.02.35 PM

I’ve pondered this often through the years.  Just another line of propriety thing, I think…

I TOTALLY feel ya, Macklemore….

“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”

#read lyrics here: 

#ambivalent feelings toward fame…..

#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 🙂

Being happy with my achievements does NOT mean that I’m not thankful to God

Image

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:

Even I have my standards….

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.

walking with a stranger....

stranger red gas can again

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.

But any potential suitors, rest assured that I can also look like this:  pretty white
