Ok... It's been a long time since I wrote in my journal... Sorry about that. Right now my life is good. I'm happy.....I'm blessed... Life is good. Just in case the other file gets deleted, here's a little letter I wrote to our baby-to-be. Hello, mister or sister Jones the 1st. I don't even know where to begin in expressing my feelings for ...

I wish I could describe to you how much gratefulness is in my heart for whoever is in the skies who loves me. The prophets say He is Jesus Christ - and I believe them. This being up there loves me more than I can possibly comprehend. There is no way that words can describe to you, whoever you are, how much I want to learn to love Him. One thi...

Cave Experience in California. Exclusive with Sarah.

Wow... Ok... On Saturday, I played hooky yet AGAIN from work. I know I shouldn't have, but I was going to miss an excursion up to a cave in Auburn, CA with 20 other awesome people. I gave it some thought, and I figured that this would probably be my only opportunity to get to go in this situation, so... I went. I had a WONDERFUL time.. I saw...

Man alive... Girls can become a problem in one's life. I'm feeling a bit of stress in that well... Heck... I don't know how to explain it. There are girls coming at me from every angle. I've talked on the phone with Charlene now about 5 times and I enjoy talking with her quite a bit. Indeed, I do... Today I asked for a girl's phone number...

As an adolescent I had a dream... I had a dream of becoming a drummer for a rock-band. I was told that this dream probably would not come true due to the large amount of people trying to do the same thing and that the odds were definitely against me. Well... Lately in my life I have had the opportunity to be a part of two rock bands. One o...

I've got a lot of typing to do but i think I've got enough time to do it in now, if I hurry. Let me just say that last weekend was heavenly. I fell deeper in love with Diana than ever before.

We all sing really rather well together, so we thought we could help some people feel the Spirit with t...

VLC Gripe

Awhile back, I found that many DVD titles released by Sony weren't able to be viewed with mplayer.  This annoyed me. So, I investigated a bit and found that VLC (another wonderful media player) could not only play them back, but also rip them with ease.  Up until a bit ago, this has been the case since the writing of that article. Whe...

Conference Notes 3

I love the feeling of Elder Uchtdorf's talk.  We really have no basis upon which to judge each other.  We need to accept and love each other.  "Do unto others that which we would hope they would do unto us" Seems like we need to actually do the work we need to do.  Christ "did" the work, he didn't delegate ...

Gen. Conf. - Born Again - Christofferson
PoeticIntensity
0 comments
This is the first time I think I've ever watched / listened to / read a talk given by Elder D. Todd Christofferson. My first impressions of him are very, very high.  He has a very poignant, straightforward, yet very soft tone to his voice.  He does not waver in his speech, and seems completely convicted of the things he says. I enjoye...

I just got done reading an excerpt on Sony's new "open", "non-DRM" solution to downloading their music legally. As I understand it, you have to go to a store, buy some sort of card for $12.99 which has a magic code on it, get the code, go to a website, enter the code, and then you are able to download one of their whole 37 alb...

So...  Interesting that one of the reasons cited for Heth's righteousness is his remembering what the Lord had done for his people, specirfically, bringing Jared and his kin over the ocean.  There has got to be something behind the whole "remember what the Lord has done for you" thing, and living a righteous life.  Heck..

Three days ago my inlaws arrived here, and the living arrangements were such that Annie, Craig, and their two wonderful children got to bunk up with us here in Springville. I don't want to go into detail as to the exact happenings of this weekend, but I'd find it hard to maintain peace within unless I wrote a bit about something which I could im...

It seems that this chapter is just a informational chapter on the goings on over a space of quite a few years.  Heh... That's pretty general, but there's really not any story-line, or analogy, or deep doctrine here... I did find it interesting how they spoke of using cement, and the sparseness of timber, and such like that.  I wonder wh...

I haven't posted many videos lately, primarily because KdenLive (my video editor in Linux) wouldn't run for more than 5 seconds without completely crashing - making it impossible for me to do any video editing.  I haven't had any success with any other video editors out there (including Cinelerra), so, I've been video-less. Anyway, KdenLive re...

Holy moly. I'm not sure I can type everything I need to, but I'm gonna try.

I'm not exactly sure where this decision will lead me, but after praying and doing some analysis of our own, Sarah and I believe t...

The beginning of this talk was set by talking about the experience President Gordon B. Hinckley had as a deacon.  He spoke of the moving power of the men singing "Praise To The Man", at a Stake Priesthood Meeting. While reading that experience, my mind immediately turned back to a very similar experience I had when beginning my mis...

We've been trying to get into the habit of having Famiily Home Evening together as a family, and tonight Sarah planned a splendid lesson that would have been enjoyed much more if I wouldn't have been ill, and dead-tired. But... such is the life of a husband/father/bread winner. :) Anyway... After the lesson, she wanted all of us to write down ...

Well.... Not much to write, other than this week's goal wasn't forgotten. :) I'd say that 5 out of the 7 days I had were a success of making at least 90% of the decisions during the day based on strengthening the family. My job is going well, although it's kind of scary because I'm the sole Linux guru of the company. They're putting a lot of fa...

Lately, I've been feeling a pretty intense lack of the Spirit in my life. I've been unsuccessfully trying to pin it down to something specific and it's driving me kind of crazy.
