My greatest creation is still yet to be.

“The sweetest melody is the one we haven’t heard.”
-U2

“We are proud of the artistic heritage that the Church has brought to us from its earliest beginnings, but the full story of Mormonism has never yet been written nor painted nor sculpted nor spoken.”
-Spencer Kimball; “The Gospel Vision of the Arts” (I LOVE THIS TALK!)

“The rest is still unwritten.”
-Natasha Bedingfield

My greatest creation
is still yet to be.
I daily am searching for
that inspiration in me

I’m no special professional,
no Shakespeare or Mayer
but I desire to express,
and have something to share

So give me some time,
and I just might be victorious
in creating something beautiful,
valuable, and glorious.

 ❤ Katherine

My greatest creation…

is still yet to be.

Shakespeare said it best:

Image“There is much truth in jest!”

ImageI love, love LOVE this quote and have been using it almost ad nauseum since I first heard it about 10 years ago.  It basically means that although our jokes aren’t meant to be taken completely seriously, they still reveal a lot of truth about us as they show what we value and believe.  For example, a person who jokes about being fat probably actually feels that way (at least somewhat) about him/herself.  Likewise, people who make jokes (though perhaps lighthearted in tone) about the fiasco involving the website of the Affordable Care Act (as hosts Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley recently just did on the CMAs), are making some kind of a statement against it.

I LOVE jokes, I LOVE humor, and I LOVE wordplay.  But not everything in our world is worthy of being included in our jokes.  I personally will NEVER make a joke that hints of racism, abuse, discrimination, or pornography even in the slightest (read more here!).  We must be careful to not cross that line of propriety, and use humor wisely and tactfully.

Text-to-self Connection:

1.  What kind of things do you like to find humor in?  Why?

2.  What sorts of topics are off-limits for jokes?  Why?

KATH DON’T CARE what Simon Says…

Truths to Consider:

1)  WE ARE ALL ARTISTS! (here’s Prezident Uchtdorf’s take on this…)

2)  We ain’t all gonna make it big (and that’s okay, ya’ll!)

3)  Stem of Jesse (Jessica!) in the scriptures

4)  What insight “The Merchant of Venice” taught me about the HBO filth series “Girls”

5)  My take on “The Great Gatsby” in 3 sentences.

6)  Haven’t yet written about Mark Twain’s  ever famous and influential piece (Huck Finn).  Stay.  Tuned.

7)  What Amanda Bynes (indirectly) taught me about Mormon temples.

8)  “American Idol” certainly has produced some talent, but overall is waaaaay over-rated.

9)  Hozaboutcha take an exodus from this blog and go read about what Moses says about idols? (here!)

10)  Katherine loves wordplay.  And admit it, she’s pretty darn awesome at it, huh? 🙂

Howard Stern

is a coward who’s show should burn!

figuratively

A STERN sonnet about a miserable man

howard

This man is awful.

His “program” filth.

I’ve never watched it.

And never will.

Howard could stand to cut his hair.

Or maybe he should use some Nair.

That would burn his scalp of sin.

Sorry, hope ya’ll know I’m just JOKin’

Howard-Stern

But seriously words cannot express

How much Stern is a pathetic mess

I HATE that some consider him a star

when he takes freedom of speech WAY.  TOO.  FAR.

But Howard, wouldn’t it be fun.

If your story turned out like that of the Prodigal Son?

🙂

Repentance is real ya’ll; even for the vilest of sinners.

Jesus_Christ

It is.
