My Testimony
PoeticIntensity
0 comments
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.
PoeticIntensity
0 comments
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...

Oh....my....goodness... Yesterday was simply beautiful.....simply beautiful.

I got up yesterday morning and started packing up my drums almost immediately. I was supposed to be at Dane's house at 1:00pm and...

The day I asked for Sarah Young's Phone Number

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...

Rock-star Dreams
PoeticIntensity
0 comments
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. The weekend started at around 8:30pm Friday night when I arrived home in Farmington from Provo. I called Diana immediately (after noticing some new CDs fr...

Well, right now I have quite a lot on my mind to tell you, so I've got to decide which to tell you first. I guess I'll start yesterday. Yesterday was Codell Bingham Sims' wedding. Let me just tell you that this is the first wedding I've been to that has been thoroughly fun. It was GREAT! The sealing in the Temple was nothing short of amazing....

Woah... It's like been a long time since I wrote in my journal, huh? Ohwell, so I've been a little busy, okay? Yesterday night a group of missionaries (Elder Musick, Topham, me, and Elder Reinwand) got together and we decided to go and sing. We all sing really rather well together, so we thought we could help some people feel the Spirit with t...

Jacob : 4
PoeticIntensity
0 comments
This chapter is full of doctrinal nuggets. Some things I noticed this time around which I haven't noticed before are the following: Verses 6-8 are primarily about the importance of revelation.  We are told this importance is denounced by our time's people in 2nd Nephi 28:5-6.  I had never made that connection before. Interes...

Helaman : 2
PoeticIntensity
0 comments
Ya know...  I sure would like to know what the politics of the time were back then.  Helaman's guard was able to single-handedly save the newly-appointed chief judge, by disguise, intellect, and ultimately a firm blade straight through the heart.  Yet, the account says nothing of telling anyone what was happening during the incident....

Samuel's Baby Blessing
PoeticIntensity
0 comments
Well... Today was the big day at church with the blessing of the newest addition to the Jones family, Samuel Jones. The blessing went well, even if I did botch the proclamation of the power by which the blessing was given.  I'm glad God is a forgiving God. The spirit of the meeting was wonderful, and it testified quite powerfully of one sp...

I know I'm WAY out of the loop on this one, but I thought I'd blog about it to possibly help others who didn't know about this quite wonderful program. For years I've been using amd64 processors and have loved them.  Ever since there has been a 32-bit firefox on gentoo, I've been using it to view all the youtube goodness out there. However...

Alma : 61, 62
PoeticIntensity
0 comments
Reading through Alma 60 and 61, I can vividly imagine what it would be like to live in times like those.  I imagine the cry for freedom being heard through the streets, as neighbors and friends decide to take up arms in defense of our right to worship how we want, and for the protection of our families, traditions, and way of life.  Putti...

New Song - "No Way Out"
PoeticIntensity
3 comments
(audio entry)
At the beginning of this year, one of the things I wanted to accomplish by next year was to write enough songs to create an album.  So far I have 3 songs I reallly like, and one which I think should be destroyed by fire.  Not too shabby, considering it's only the beginning of February. When I was 26, 1 day after I had broken up with my...

Wow....   This will probably be a short entry, but I thought I'd write down what is the first hardware failure of my server! I built this server 3 years ago, and it has been serving up everything that is served in my house (mythtv, web (this site), ftp, ssh, music, photos).  Well... Yesterday evening, we tried to fire up mythtv...

Enos
PoeticIntensity
1 comment
Someone of spiritual authority once told me that anyone who read the book of Enos, and marked his scriptures based on importance, would have the entire book of Enos highlighted. After reading it this morning, I can see why. The first thing that hit me was the phrase, and my father "taught me in his language".  If we read the fi...

Jacob : 5

The first thing I thought of when I read this chapter, besides, "Holy moly, it's like almost midnight and I'm gonna dive into Jacob 5??", was the following: In Jacob 4:1, he states how hard it was for them to keep plates, due to the difficulty in engraving.  Well....  With that in mind, I asked myself, "How important is J...

End of a Good Week
PoeticIntensity

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...

Yup.. Today was my first day at the new job. Now, if anyone has gone through a lot of jobs with the honest intent of keeping every one he had, it's me. I've just had the luck of getting "let go" because of downsizing or whatever. Anyway... Usually, the first day on the job entails signing a bunch of paperwork and settling in. Today was anything but...
