F-Bombs?Hmmm


What is an f-bomb? It's  an English word that is generally considered obscene which, in its most literal meaning, refers to the act of sexual intercourse. By extension it may be used to negatively characterize anything that can be dismissed, disdained, defiled, or destroyed.
I do my best not to swear
because of the principles of the gospel
of Jesus Christ that I choose to live.
But that doesn't mean that I haven't
ever used or said this word. In the height
of my anger or when I was in the youth.
And I bring it up today because I want
to know your opinion.
How does foul language affect you?
What would you do if you heard an f-bomb in church? school? or in the work place? Would you laugh? get annonyed? try to be understanding? or would you misjudge the person or persons for their language & ignore them forever. I'd have to say where I am now in my life. I have been guilty of all of the above. But I am happy to report that I've matured since my days of prejudgement & thoughtless reactions of when I haven't agreed with someones language.
I feel especially grateful for people that have taught me that misjudging others isn't right. Whether it's the language they use, opinions they have or what they believe. If we treat people as the individuals they could be.
 They will become just that &  will be more motivated, to live up to their highest potential..
Because as members of the church
and as human beings in general.
We've taken or should take the stand,
 of being less self-righteous and more self-conscious of becoming our brother's keeper.
Not self-appointing unlawful
 judges to our brothers. 
 Which isn't our position in the first place..


That very scripture should be our motto.
Never to be overlooked, by anyone who is striving to become a  better person.
Not to be better to stand above others.
But becoming a better person for yourself.
Because the real competition should
never be a race against your brother.
But a marathon ran against yourself
in order to be freed.
 Freed from arrogance, jealousy and envy.
That's the point of living a happier life.
If you live opposite of that & compare
your weakness against someone's strength.
You will never be satisfied and will eventually cause self-destruction. Just don't do it!
Know your self-worth, not just others :)
Today was a great Sabbath day & the wheather was perfect. Clear skies & cool air to make for a sunny day. Had an insighful talk with my new bishop. Bishop Vielstich of the Southgate Ward who help easy my concerns. And I'm happy to report after being in the ward for a month and almost two weeks. I've been extended a call to be a "Beehive Advisor" in the young women. I'm especially excited about it because it's exactly what I was hoping for & getting to teach again is just what I need. Hope they enjoy having my escort baby Kengike joining us. Cause knowing him he won't be willing to stay in nursery without me.. Until he gets into primary
come January 2012 & he'll be all grown up.
Today in the words of Ice Cube "Was a Good Day".. lol
