Young Minds

Most everyone knows I have no children so it is vary rare that I interact with any. Just the other day I was coming home from the grocery store and I see two kids hanging out in the street in front of my house. Now I have a little "creek" or drainage ditch in front of my house, and on a couple of occasions I have noticed kids looking for frogs in it. No nevermind to me, they aren't bothering anything unless like that one time they moved the big rocks from the ditch into my yard and I had to move them out the way when I cut the grass. Minor inconvenience so no harm no foul.
     So as I pulled in my driveway I get out and get ready to take my groceries in the house when one of the boys hollers at me. I go down to see what he wants and of course its to ask about frogs. I talk to him and his brother about the frogs and how they hide when people come around. We then talk further about animals, hunting, and the circle of life. I notice they both have just sat down in the street and their listening attentively like were having school. We just talked for a few minutes and then I went on in the house. The moment made me jealous of all the parents out their, and the opportunity they have to teach the kids. If you are not spending time with your kids engaging there young minds you are missing out, because their minds are thirsting. If you don't teach them while they want to learn they will get older, and it will be a battle to tell them anything.

VISION 11/4/2020

Behold, I woke on Wednesday morning November 4, 2020. I was happy to be blessed by the Most High with another day. I headed out into the world and there was great sorrow for some and great joy for others. I had great joy because I knew how much grace had been shown to me by the Savior, and I thought maybe the others who were happy shared this same feeling and the ones who were sad were that way because they don't know the Savior. I found out that all of their feelings were based off the election of a new king, and nothing to do with blessings that they had received from their Heavenly Father.      I continued on until I came to a sight that amazed me. Their was a crowd of people that wanted to fight each other. They were evenly divided and some had various weapons and wore the armor of their chosen side. There was red and blue and letters and symbols like 'Q' and 'BLM'. None of them said anything that sounded like it came from the Holy Word, they quoted only from th

FAILURE (Personal)

Throughout my life I have had failures. Anyone that saw me try to play basketball, run track, and wrestle in high school can attest that my athletic career was a failure. I took test in school that I should have got an 'A' on if I had studied and applied myself, and the times I didn't prepare and didn't get an 'A' I consider it a failure. Even more so in the academic realm, I never finished my bachelor's degree in Engineering. Just years worth of credits sitting in limbo to remind me of my failure to finish when many people made sacrifices so I could achieve a higher education. As many know I have never been married and have no children, which I also consider to be a failure on my part. Most importantly, in my walk I have committed sins knowing that it separates my from my savior. Doing it in full knowledge of what Jesus did for me. I have been a failure at living the life that he wants me to live. I say these things to let you know that I understand failure

The Great Divide I

  I actually started on this post back in October 2020. It was all over the place, but I just recently looked at it and got it more focused.       So something has been on my heart for a while, and I have finally decided to write down a few words that will hopefully explain some things about my actions. First off let me state unequivocally that I believe in Matthew 5:43-45 (Love your enemies) and Matthew 22:37-40 (Love your neighbors). So if anyone ever needs help, be they stranger, family, friend, or even enemy, you have but to ask.       With that out of the way let me get to what this is about. I wrote a post called Fence Jumping a while back.   Check it out if you get a chance. I tried back then to let people know some things that are going on. Tried to explain why I'm choosing not to be as social of a person these days. I get the sense however that either people don't care or I haven't withdrawn myself enough f
