Journal of Discourses 23:280; “…Whatever men’s laws may be we cannot deny the truth of God, the revelations of God. I cannot do it, I would be damned and go to hell if I were to do it….” – George Q. Cannon, Salt Lake City, October 8, 1882
So did George Cannon go to the Celestial Kingdom or not?
This week started off with a bang, if you will.
I woke this morning to find another barrage of angry posts on the blog from a very disgruntled Mormon.
Now he’s been posting every day, several times a day, and because of his vocabulary I’ve banned his notes from showing up on the blog. Today I downloaded info from this blog and discovered this Mormon gentleman has gone to the trouble of acquiring an e-mail address with our ministry name.
I’d like to ask everyone to pray for this man as he seems to be obsessed with e-mailing spam to us multiple times each day. I won’t go into the number of times he’s tried to post comments since I banned him or how incredibly rude he’s been.
Typically I have my postings written up to a month in advance and then post them automatically to the date I need/want them to be read.
About ten days ago I came down with a cold and while battling that I had a severe reaction to seasonal allergies. While I love all the gorgeous pink blossoms on flowering cherry and plum trees in my area, they cause me and my sinuses a great deal of grief. To complicate matters I have MS – no boring days in my life! Without going into ad nausea detail I need to be well for my treatments and this is where you come in!
Pride in Being a Mormon
Discourses of Brigham Young, pg 30; “Take a pride in acknowledging the Savior. Train and educate yourselves until you will take a pride in acknowledging God, the Author of all. Take a pride in the religion that makes you pure and holy, and that produces in the heart of every individual who embraces it a feeling to be truthful in every word he speaks, to be honest in every act he performs, in all his dealings with his neighbors. Take a pride in this and fear not the wicked. 12:326”
Matthew 6:21; “For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.”
The ABC’s of Utah Vital Stats 2012
That’s how many people in Utah have committed suicide since 1980. In those 32 years the size of a small town took their own lives. It’s sobering news when thought upon in that light and even more sobering when you realize that today someone in Utah will take their own life again.
Every 131 minutes someone in Utah will attempt suicide.
The potential these people had to make us a better society or to contribute their time and talents is gone – forever.
While compiling the stats this time around I didn’t see any significant changes in the way Utah does life, except for the continuous rise of suicides. As I mentioned in the status of Utah schools I carry a hope inside me things will change, and for some people that’s true. Fortunately God can and will intervene when we open our hearts. While I understand and know that as the world keeps drawing further away from the Lord things will continue to worsen, there’s an eternal optimist living in me that doesn’t think it needs to be so.
God is Louder
This past week my family and I enjoyed a few days together over on the coast. I fell in love with oceans as a young child while visiting an uncle who lived in Jersey and from that time on I’ve been in awe.
While visiting Pacific Beach, WA this past week I stood out on the back porch of the house we rented and just listened to the waves rolling in. One after another they came as I made a mental note of their consistency and how their strong rumbling noise kept going even with other noises around me.
Their sound reminds me that God is always present, always on time and always bigger and louder than man-made noises.
When we allow God into our lives His comfort is greater than our most self-degrading thoughts and His Holy Spirit stronger than any self mustered willpower we’ll ever know.

December 30 – Jude 1:21-23; “Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life. And of some have compassion, making a difference: And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.”
December 29 – Revelation 5:6a, 9-10a; “And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain…And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.”

December 22 –1 Peter 5:2-4; “Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind; Neither as being lords over God’s heritage, but being ensamples to the flock. And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away.”
