I know this picture is disgusting, but I didn’t want to forget. It was Fast Sunday and I was fasting for…our country, for the idiotic people to have their hearts and minds changed. (There was a whole movement on FB today for this fast, so I felt I wasn’t alone. That would’ve been a useless fast if it had been just me, I realize this.) Paul Carpenter gave a great lesson in Gospel Doctrine about how Satan deceives and captures us. He read some quotes by Hitler, quotes that have been tormenting me for years in our current political situation. It was just supposed to be a lesson to keep us safe from Satan’s snares, but I just couldn’t help likening it all to the leaders of our country and how our freedoms are being taken away and it feels too late to ever recover! I ALMOST lost it in class. During the closing prayer, the tears just could not be contained. I busted out the door and headed for the car as the flood gates broke free. Oh. My. Gosh. I sat in the car bawling for 30 minutes, like someone close to me had died. And that’s what it feels like! I honestly do not know how I can continue breathing when I feel so helpless, seeing what is happening to this country. How stupid and evil the world is.
Aaaaaand in other news….After church, we had lunch and watched “Nephi and the Brass Plates” twice in a row. Ashton and Emmy LOVED it. Ethan helped me make dessert for Grammy’s. I kind of invented a blueberry cream cheese BTS dessert. It turned out pretty yummy.
I just love this family. We got to Grammy’s and found everyone sitting around playing games together.
Logan is just THE BEST.
