I guess that what I’m getting at is that maybe there isn’t as much of a need for individuals to have an extremely unique and personal insight into future events. That’s hard for a lot of people to accept –that the Spirit may not offer quite that much personally catered guidance for every facet of their lives. Seen in that light, maybe the fallacy is placing too much importance on the Great Question to begin with. Maybe the purpose of a patriarchal blessing or a general prophecy was never to foretell down-to-the last-detail specifics in the first place.
So when you ask yourself if the prophecy will come to pass whether you work towards it or not, perhaps you should consider if you were even meant to ask that question in the first place. In other words, if you’re expecting a specific event to happen in a prescribed way, maybe that’s not how it was ever meant to be taken.]]>
I heard a really good talk on “seeking out” the blessings of our PBs. She told the story of two people and their blessings. One of a guy a century ago who had all sorts of promises but squandered them all. Another of her son who, so far, gained something in his blessing because he sought it out and worked for it.
Not that EVERY belssing can be achieved by seeking them out, but it is important to do.]]>
Don, yeah, you made me laugh out loud, too.
Stealtharachnid, we’re not strangers, we’re all friends. Hell, we’re almost family.
I can see me coming up to you in the hall at church and saying, “stealtharachnid, how ya doin’?”
Some of these names just slay me. I’m thinking Spiderman. Totally off topic, but I’m punch drunk this morning.
ON TOPIC: My patriarchial blessing promises me that I will always have lots of good friends and that I will have money and the privilege of sharing it. So far, so good.]]>
Just skip the Cherries Jubilee for dessert.]]>
I never told her that I received the blessing after my call. tee hee.]]>
My first area in Stamford England was fairly easy, but Birmingham was much more difficult.
Maybe my next mission?!
My thoughts….keep the commandments and let the chips and PB blessing fall where they may.]]>
