The day the music died...

I hope that by this time you have all heard that Mitt Romney had withdrawn from the presidential race. I also hopped that you have all made supplication to God on behalf of this country, because barring a miracle I see little hope for the greatest nation in the world. Romney has done what he felt needed to be done and I have to respect that, but I fear for the future. The three remaining candidates hold positions vastly different from my own and this blog will not yet make a new endorsement. We have seen a pattern repeated twice in the Book of Mormon and I fear it is happening so slowly to us that we don't realize we are repeating it. If only we would remain righteous, destruction would not come upon us.
May God Bless America, the cradle of freedom.

We thank thee O God for a Prophet

Yesterday some of my friends and I woke up early and were able to attend Pres. Hinckley's funeral. It was a very good service and was so grateful I could go. I've done fairly well dealing with the news since last Sunday, but when the apostles walked in and they left the empty chair between Monson and Eyering it really finally hit me that he was gone, but I know that succession in the presidency is a smooth transition and that this is what the Lord needs right now. Truly Gordon B. Hinckley was a prophet of God.
