Desperate

It seems to me some fine things have been laid upon your table,

but you always want the ones that you can’t get!

I HATE the show “Desperate Housewives” by the way (I’ll tell ya why later),

but this post would simply be incomplete without referencing it.

                  Children’s author Obert Skye claims that, “Desperate times call for:

“To despair is to turn your back on God.”

      complicated words slipping off of your tongue

and ain’t one of them the truth...

                                                                       there’s danger in frustration…

Desperate.

PS.  I thought long and hard about including the picture of the Savior.  He wasn’t desperate in the traditional sense, but I feel that his hell in the garden could rightfully be classified as desperate.

Abuse is one of the most heinous crimes in the history of humanity,

Image 

and still I forgive Chris Brown.

I the Lord will forgive whom I will forgive,

but of you it is required to forgive ALL men.”

Once again, I go over my standard 2 minutes

because it is important for me to express ALL I need to say:

Recapture:

I forgive Chris Brown.

I’m quite sure Rihanna has publicly expressed that she has.

I in no way condone his past behavior as acceptable.

Abuse of any kind is unspeakably evil, ugly, and utterly unacceptable.

I can understand where Miranda Lambert (and others with similar viewpoints) are coming from.

I believe that the Atonement of Jesus Christ can redeem even people who make BIG mistakes.

I believe Mr. Brown when he has publicly expressed how sorry he is.

I expect Chris to be on his absolute best behavior from now on.

I sincerely hope I am not offending anyone who has ever experienced abuse.

And to begin to conclude this post, I wish to share the following LDS Conference Talk concerning this heartbreaking topic.

Read here. 

I pray that you, as one abused or one who has caused it, will act now to avail yourself of the healing power of the Atonement of Jesus Christ. I testify that your faith and obedience will assure that He will help you. 

Thank you Elder Scott.

READERS!

         If any of you have experienced

or are currently experiencing abuse of any kind,

my heart and prayers are with you.

Remember that you are a child of God

and deserve to be treated as such.

One website tops it all!

I use a lot of different websites and sources for research, development, entertainment, teaching, communication and of course for inspiration and reference for this blog.  But one specific URL address stands out from all the rest…

this video is about 2x the length I usually do, but still watch it, okay? 🙂

Oh, and here’s just a little outtake:

Now, go visit that website I mentioned…

Love always, Ms. Katherine

Slavery need not only be literal.

Image  Image

Nor does slavery* of any kind need be permanent.

     “Through the Atonement of Jesus Christ,

we can proclaim our emancipation from the slavery of trials and sin,

and thus (re)gain the freedom that is rightfully ours.”

Read more here about how I became emancipated from a kind of slavery

through an expression found in a John Mayer song.

¡Enseñando (teaching)!

1.  What things have you enslaved (figuratively or literally)?

2.  What ideas, resources, people, awesome blog(s) can be a Christ-figure and help emancipate you (figuratively or literally)?

*Slavery of any and all connotations (but particularly institutionalized racial slavery) is something that makes my heart heavy with pain.  Please know that I never intend to be flippant or insensitive concerning these issues (read more here about how racism is absolutely 100% NOT compatible with true Christianity).

Also, I in no way mean to compare myself to Abraham Lincoln or to the Savior.  And still I am expecting a thunderbolt of blasphemy…

WWJD?

I don’t know it all (many people assume I do), but there is one thing I DO know very strongly.  And for the safety of your own self-esteem and confidence, you do NOT want to talk with me about.

Dear readerz,

Look at my title (if you haven’t already).

Figure it out (if you haven’t already).

And now someone alert the media because I’ve just been hit with a thunderbolt of  blasphemy for comparing those 2 men.

🙂

And you’re gonna hear me ROAR!

I really, REALLY like this song a lot…

I once read an interpretation of “The Yellow Wallpaper” where the narrator was compared to a lion…

Not even gonna go there…

BOOKENDING Ahead:

OH, and FYI, it’s okay if you don’t love/listen to/like his music.  One of my best friends does not…

BUT THE MAN HAS MAD SKILLZ!
