If God were a blogger in heaven and blogged his point of view
Do you think we’d see the folly of the many things we do?
He may blog of similar issues that Earth’s leaders do debate
Of rights and fights and freedoms and the union of our state
With loving words and a special font I’m sure he’d teach us how
Though the nature of the flesh is such that we often stand when we should bow
Would his domain receive a PageRank that pushed a 9 or 10?
Or would we link to other websites like Homestar and CNN?
And in our favorites and cookies would we find foremost God’s Blog
Or would those files be resigned to archives on unused server logs?
Truthfully, The Man doth speak and his words are found today
And a blog is neat, but not requisite, to hear them and obey
So bookmark now this techie’s thought of the need for God to blog
And when you think that God’s not real don’t check your server log
Just find a time to be alone, to listen and be still
And in those quiet moments you will feel your Father’s will
His love is there. His peace is real. No earthly good can ‘er replace

“Brothers and sisters, one of the great consolations of this Easter season is that because Jesus walked such a long, lonely path utterly alone, we do not have to do so. His solitary journey brought great company for our little version ...
- My Words Never Cease
I’d like to dedicate this post to my friend Charles.
It’s been a little while since I took some time to get out of myself. The other week I stepped out of my usual self-absorbed role to wear the hat of a missionary again. Our ward mission leader had asked for several ward members to go ...
- Restoring Faith in the Family
Elder Kenneth Johnson
Of the Seventy
“Stable families provide the fabric that holds society together, benefiting all mankind, even those who may feel they live in less-favorable circumstances.”
