Attention all Bloggers!

Someone once told me that bloggers are selfish.

But I'm going to give you a chance to be a nice blogger and help me out. Can you help me out?

For one of my classes, I'm required to post something I learn from class on another blog. Then people are supposed to comment on what I write. At the end of the semester, I put it all in a portfolio.

But no one is commenting on my blog lately... catchin' my drift? Even if I don't know you....write your thoughts. Please! At least something you like about what I've written.

Thanks--in advance.

The Portent of Stormy Weather Ahead

Lest you think I've completely gone over the edge and become an activist, I wanted to share this video with you. It has highlights from April 2008 General Conference. This came from President Monson shortly after he became the senior apostle, prophet and President of the Church.

The person who made the video wrote: "In the April 2008 Priesthood Session, President Monson mentioned "political machinations." Not knowing what that meant I looked up the word and was stunned as I read the definition. This video was inspired to help wake up my fellow LDS members to the dangers we face in America as seen over 40 years ago by President Ezra Taft Benson. It is time for all of us to get our homes in order in preparation of the approaching PORTENT storm that Pres. Hinckley warned us about in 1998."

May the Lord bless this great land built on religious freedoms. I testify its creation was governed by the hand of God. May we

The War in Heaven

I came across this video last night. Isn't it great? Take a look for yourself.

December 6: Day of Fasting and Prayer for America

I received this e-mail this morning:


"We are becoming firmly convinced that our elected politicians are incapable of representing the will of the American people – and incapable of adhering to the Constitution of the United States of America which they took a solemn oath to uphold and defend.

"We are among the millions of U.S. Citizens who are at our wits end sending e-mails, faxes, telephoning, meeting with elected officials, demonstrating, rallying – and hoping – that those representatives will do the will of the people. They have failed. Have we, as well?

"The United States of America is a choice land, a nation that was founded by our forefathers who were divinely inspired by God the Father Almighty. This choice nation has been the defender of freedom throughout its relatively short history. We have led in the fight for freedom against many tyrants and dictators who have plundered and pillared their citizens and have subjected them to great sufferings through blood and horror. The people of those nations who suffered these great injustices knew that they could always depend upon the goodness, power and righteousness of the United States of America to extract them from their plights. And it was done – many times over. It was not done without expense – the expense of the blood and sacrifice of the members of our armed forces – and the suffering of their families.

"As the year 2009 soon comes to a close, we the citizens of the United States of America finds ourselves facing many of the challenges – which those nations suffered at the hands of their political leaders. We are being attacked from within! Who do we turn to? Which great nation can we turn to help us to keep and maintain our freedom? We do not have the same hope of those nations to whom we were benefactors. We MUST turn to our Savior. If we are a righteous people, we will be deserving of, and receive of His blessings as He has promised. He suffered and died for us – He atoned for our sins; each one of us - individually. We know that - as a nation – we can once again be the choicest of lands.

"However, we cannot achieve that blessing without our willingness to please our Lord and Savior. We are asking that all who read this message that have faith in Christ designate Sunday December 6, 2009, as a day of fasting and prayer for America.

"You do not have to march on the nation’s Capitol nor go to a tea bag rally. From the comfort of your home, you can get on bended knee and with a broken heart and contrite spirit, petition the Lord to bless this nation generously according to His will. Then, keep the fast for that day.

"Make that Christ-like commitment to our Heavenly Father. He will listen, He will answer. That has been promised. 'And whatsoever he shall ask the father in my name, which is right, believing that ye shall receive, behold it shall be given unto you' (3 Nephi 18-20). 'And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive' (Matthew 21:22)."

Now my thoughts:

I'm not at my wits end, nor do I think there is nothing left to do; I see much we can still do. But I cannot think of a better way to unite our faith in the Lord to call upon Heaven to bless our leaders, our country and its citizens, and guide this great land of America--a land which was built upon religious freedoms the Pilgrims sought when they came more than two centuries ago.

I wish not to be a vigilante, neither to make afraid nor offend. But I see this as a way to unite as followers of Christ to ask the Lord to bless this great nation.

It is on that note I extend this invitation to join on December 6, Fast Sunday. Our great nation is in need of divine intervention. This is the best thing we could do to make our voices heard. Please pass the word.
