Love this weekend
I love this time each time of year, YES spring is here and the daffodils are blooming greatly but I love this weekend because it is Conference weekend for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saint. We listen to the Prophet Voice.. LOVE IT. If you have questions about what I am talking about visit www.Lds.org But I think it is the time of year that I get to relax a little and partake of the conference in my home. I am so glad that I have BYU-TV. and I have it on the internet to listen to it as well. I think its also the time of year that I do spring Cleaning... I can do more than one thing at a time.. YOU can see my bedroom floor as I have been listening to conference. I remember my time at Rick's I was always cooking up a storm to have someone over for BRUNCH during conference since it was on tv there as well.. I gave that up seeing I have worked most of the conference for the past few years. Yesterday I had to work all day which sometime the Lord provides when we are not ready for him to provide. But I can say I was wide awake this morning around 3 and started watching conference. So I have now sat and listened to 6 hours of conference.. plus I made it to most of priesthood last night. I still love listening to our prophet... IT is so wonderful to have him lead and guide us. and I love the fact that Elder Dallin H Oaks spoke yesterday... FUNNY... if you look back on my blog.... I think it was the same talk. Sometimes you need to hear things twice to get the full effect of a lesson. Last night Priesthood was strong words on marriage... Now I have to give my 2 cents worth here.... I know when I turned down marriage... YES YES I do. I was at Rick's it was my first year at college and I was not really looking... I was but I wasnt I feel in love with Kimberly T. and I asked her to marry me... It was six months later that I heard from her. During that time, I dated... and I was chased... OH yes I was chased.. There was a young lady that was in one of my classes and she sat next to me everyday. she would walk to classes with me... she even did the whole asking me out over a school radio station. (WHICH I never listened to.) Come now I was not that good. I was called when she did it by another young lady and said we did not hear from you... I was like who is this and what are you talking about. REALLY I never heard the song request for me. I remember going into the professors office and sitting down with him and saying what is going on.. At the time I did not realize I was a hot commitiy being a male on Rick's campus and being single and well... I left with the fact that I was still single. I asked 2 people in my life to be my wife. Kimberly and Andrea.. OK if you count suzann yes her as well... I Loved each one of them. I for some odd reason felt that Jen and I would be married someday but Living 3000 miles away from each other did not help. Oh wait I forgot Summer... WOW this really could be a good story... I forgot about Summer. So last night as I was talking to Stan, I said to him... YOU know I am happy. I would love that relationship but I am happy. Today as I was finishing this up.. I posted on facebook another wonderful talk about marriage. Yes it was a very tearful talk and I did enjoy it. and I made a humorous comment about marriage. Let's face it MY family is not on a good track for marriage... I think Arlene and Jim loved each other but yes BUT... Patty's first marriage ended. Steve's marriage ended, Brenda's marriage ended... and well yes we have had a few that ended. So I facebooked.. OK.. No more on Marriage please.... and I got a hand ful of wonderful comments back. Ted: HA HA HA HA get on it! From my friend Stan... "sigh" I thought wed already heard this.. I need a good tithing talk or maybe something more on charity.. Jake said I think there is an alternative... you can get a dog.. :) WHICH here I think is where I might have put the humor in it... YES I have humor.. someone did not think so.... \I said.. Jake but a dog makes more of a mess, with a wife I could have a maid... WOW that was the part someone went off on me for being a sexist pig... WOW WOW WOW you really dont know me if that is what you think I am all about. and then she went on to say that she heard that All I wanted to be is a kept man and that I dont want to work. OK here is where you know I have deleted her as a friend and have ended all ties to this person. I just want to say... I value the role of a woman in this life. As a mother, teacher, friend, compainon... That just hurt that someone one would say I was a sexist pig. Oh heck I have joked and it is true... A woman can make more money than a man can.. (WELL at least me) But for me being a kept man.. wow that person has lowered herself... and I think wow maybe conference is what you should have been listening to instead of playing dungan and drangons. wow. OK that is my 2 cents again.. anyway to all my sisters out there that are mothers, and teachers, and have to work know that I love you for being the person you are and that you Are one of Heavenly Fathers blessings to us men.
