About that Other Blog

So I did recently start a political blog. Here is the address:
If you like politics, you may like checking it out, especially when I get some cool people contributing to it - I have a few such people who have agreed to help. If you go to it and have any comments/suggestions, please make them. Thanks!

Happiness is . . .

going to a special place in another city and randomly just happening to end up there at the same time as one of your very best friends who happens to live in an even different city.

reading a good book with a friend.

going to sleep on time (which I'm not, but it would be a happy thing if it did happen).

Ahhh . . . the relief that can come from talking things out. The D.T.R. is generally something dreaded and avoided, I think, but in my very limited experience, I also believe that it is one of the best things ever. One of my friends recently stressed to me that "ABOVE ALL, the best thing in a relationship is open communication." A good D.T.R. certainly fits into that. It lets a person exhale and move on in the chosen path.

180th General Conference

I am quite tired tonight, so I don't think I have enough energy to really blog right now. However, I do want to say that General Conference was great, as always. I feel like a big theme of it was families and how important it is for parents and children to have close, personal relationships. Many people spoke of how important it is for children and youth to be taught well. I totally agree and am glad for the talks because the family in our society today is certainly in danger and often not what it ought to be, as is very much evidenced by other societal problems that would not be so widespread if there were stronger families.

On a different note, I have started a new blog. I only just began and don't have anything other than the initial post up, so I will wait to give you the address until I have more. It is going to be political in nature, meaning that there will probably be a lot of venting on it. I am hoping to get some other people to contribute to it, so when I get the address put on here, I hope you will check it out to see if it will be of interest to you.

He Lives

He Lives
This is a nice little message with testimonies of the living Christ. I hope you like it. He does live. I am so glad to know that because of how I feel and how I am blessed. I am so not worthy of His love, but I am so grateful for it.
