This post is for the one who thinks this blog is about 80% boring, 10% lame, 5% nerdy, 3% *yawn* and 2% sorta kinda maybe a little bit interesting.
(And no, this isn't for the brother who can't even stand to hear the word blog because he thinks it's the dumbest thing of all time. This person actually reads it, occasionally.)
In this post I am going to attempt to be interesting, try to find something non mommy/wifey related, and maybe even touch upon something controversial.
But before I do here is my disclaimer: I am very conservative, and I do have strong feelings and opinions about things. However, I respect and value your beliefs and opinions, and I love you, all of you, no matter what you believe. So please respect me for my feelings and beliefs and don't start hating me all over the net if I say something you disagree with. Comment all you want (but nice language please).
I am worried, terrified even sometimes, about where we are going as a people. It doesn't matter where you look....in the history books, in the Bible, in the Book of Mormon..you'll see that we're making a lot of mistakes that have been made in the past. There are a lot of causes as to why we are becoming (for lack of a better word) a wicked people. We are forsaking values that were considered non-negotiable at the signing of our constitution. As a whole, we are turning inward, focusing on pleasing ourselves and our selfish desires.
I am not without hope, I am never without hope, but I still have this gut feeling that things are going to get worse before they get better. I could go on and on about what I think is the cause of this decline. I could bore you to tears with all of the evidences I have seen to back up my observations. Then we could get in a "discussion" about how to define evil and wickedness and blah blah blah but here's the thing. It all comes down to two things for me:
The turning away from God.
The breakdown of the family.
If we can somehow embrace those two things and bring them back, stronger than ever before, we will keep going the way we are. And I promise you, it's not a good place.
So, over time, I'll let it all out right here on this blog, so you know just where I stand. And if I lose most or all of my readers so be it. I will no longer sit idly by. I cannot.
Everything I hold dear is at stake.
