Welcome to hell, preacher...

What movie is that line from?

I went to Church yesterday. Good times. I've actually been reading the Book Of Mormon everyday for a while now. It does make a difference, but putting it into words is not possible for me. I love the Gospel. I've been concurrently reading the Comprehensive History of the Church and it adds a great appreciation to the work and the direction of the Gospel in the future.

I try to see patterns in my life, when I look at my past. I see the ups and the downs and I wonder if there is a correlation between having my heart set on something not of the Gospel and the down-times? There is so much distraction in this world: music (good or bad), work, bills, war, politics, family (good or bad..ha ha ha), obsession with myself, there is too many to name. Sometimes I can go outside and stand there and there will be nothing going on but it would be...so...loud.

Anyway, I'm deleting Ministry from the IPOD and I-tunes library. I'm not announcing this to brag or show what a spiritual man I am but I'm looking forward to being reconciled to Christ and I don't think I want that weight always dragging on me. Music is physical to me; when I get reflective, Ministry becomes heavy...not in the musical sense.

Patrick, I see from your mucho name changing you are confused. The whole world knows of it, the whole blogosphere knows it by your writings, what is ailing you? Is it your innate white guilt? How does it feel to come from slave-owning history? Right. Paint Your Wagon, just another propaganda flick trying to make stealing of the Native Americans' land seem palatable. I pity you and your children, prick Henry. Is that your real name? Stupid parents...

sorry ph - this relates to a past post - yes - i definitely see it all as a human disease - not all an american thing....i do think the usa should be more caring - they are the massive players - so to set an example??? Britain is in the same league now - agreed - if every individual took care of themselves, that would surely take care of the wider community...non? you are a nurse, i nearly was - so we have probably been taught much of the same lingo

i respect your belief in the god you so choose! I'm not into bashing religions and religious people - despite my stance....i was raised a very staunch catholic...lapsed now - would i go back to it...probably not....but i certainly don't believe in bringing another person down on the premis of their religious persuasion - that is sick! i heard someone saying moron instead of mormon( you know the one)...that is just really small & malicious, degrading and ultimately the biggest, ugliest bigot of them all!

Thanks. Honestly, it doesn't bother me about (you know the one). There are things each of us as human beings need to work out in this life; each of us as individuals have different paths. Enough of that soap box. This world is crazy. Actually I agree with alot of the Left Forum but I disagree on the causes and the means they spout.
