I'm Ready!

I love change! I want it and need it almost everyday to get through the day. I find that change is the one thing that I gravitate to the most. I constantly need to change my thoughts and emotions (feelings in motion), and use to think this had to be hard, but I am learning that it is not. I can do it in a second. Just change the thing I focus on it the situation. If I focus on what is wrong or what hurts then I am focused on pain and I will feel pain. If on the other hand I focus on what I will recieve from the situation (gratitude) then I will feel joy (I choose to see the greatest gift I could possibly recieve from what I am experiencing). If something is hard, I choose to focus on the great gift of experience and the power I will recieve from the situation and va' la it is mine. In an instant I begin to experience power and knowledge, I begin to see clearly what it is I can put to use and learn from my situation. I find it an opportunity to excersize faith or charity and now it is a blessing not a trial. I am learning that pain is always an opportunity to feel joy.

Heavenly Father pointed this out to Joseph Smith when He told him that all things were for his experience and even went on to say for his GOOD! He pretty much fore-told Jospeph everything that would happen to him and then added many things that I think happen to us and others so that nothing could be left out. How could all these terrible things for his good? Well it all starts in how we look at them. Do we really believe that God loves us and will only give us gifts, or do we believe that He will do things and allow things to happen to us that are "bad"? Because if we really know Heavenly Father we KNOW that it is ALL for our good and that it is all a gift! Yes it can be looked at as bad, but that is only the label we put on it. If we are going to go through it anyway, why not see the gift before we have recieved it? Why not get a jump on it and experience what we know will eventually be the outcome, the gift of it. That is my goal, to always see the gift, even before I begin to experience it. I choose to experience the gift and joy in the pain! It is how my pain is swallowed up in the joy of the Savior. It is my view on 'what is' that counts, nothing else!

I love joy and find ways to experience it even when others would not be able to find it. I find joy in all areas of my life!

Happy Easter! It's that beautiful time of year again and we have taken full advantage of it by using the holiday as an excuse to increase our food storage possibilites. You ask what I mean by this of course. Well we have just gotten back from the IFA store where we held all sorts of baby animals from baby rabbits, ducks and chicks to baby goats. It was so much fun! Then we took home six of our very own baby chicks. We got all the watering supplies, feed and wood chips.

It took me back to when I was a kid and we got chicks in the back coop. I remember loving going out and listening to the chirping of the little fuzz balls. Of course they didn't stay little for long and those chickens were purchased to eat. But the chickens in a different place in a diffeent time layed eggs and we had the best time going out and collecting those eggs. I remember sticking my hand under them and finding their treasures. It was so much fun to collect the eggs every day. I don't remember if I did this just for Grandma Thatcher of it we had the chickens after moving there. I do remember loving it!

The chicks take 3 months to get full grown and while we wait for this we will be building an ideal coop. This is what it is supposed to look like. Yes, I know it looks far beyond our abilities but I believe we can do it. It may not end up looking this good, but it will be perfect! I am so excited, now all we need is a couple baby goats!

I hope you all have a wonderful Easter weekend and spend some time thinking about the amazing gift of the Savior and His Resurrection!

The Great Deception!!!

I have been reading a new book and I think you all need to go get it and read it! It is called "Awakening To Our Awful Situation" and it is written by Jack Monnett, PhD. In 2006. He has foretold the things that have happened in the past year pretty much. It is about the government and how the Book of Mormon has warned us about what we are facing right now. It is very clear that we are facing some pretty scary stuff! I am wishing I had Grandpa Thatcher here to ask about all the things that he knew and why have I not stayed abrest of it the way I should have? It is very clear that we are responsible to do what we can do to change the "awful situation we are in".

I really love that Jack Monnett has taken what he knows and it trying to tell people what he sees and what is important. It is wonderful to have so many quotes from the Prophets in one place about the government. It seems to me that when someone has information they have a responsibility to take it to the people and teach them. This is what he has done. He is not hiding his light. He reminds us that the Elders of Isreal are not the church and that the constitution will not be saved by a church organization, but by men and women that love the contry and are LDS. We of all the people on the face of the planet have the knowledge to fix this and we are the ones, (the house of Ephrium) that have the stewardhip as well. We are the chosen house of Isreal. That means that we are the goveners, or the ones that give all the blessings to the other houses of Isreal. This can be good and this can be hard but it is what it is! We are responsibile to change what we are facing and not hide our heads in the sand.

Jack Monnett looks at the core of the problems and speaks very clearly that both parties are corrupt, we may not want to see this but it is true. No matter who is in the white house we get the same results and the same problems. This should tell us that it is not the president that is the answer. The president is going to do what he is told by the banks and the Rothchilds and Morgans etc. The Book of Mormon wars us that the Secret Combinations will be the undoing of our nation and the cause of the fall of our country just as it was the fall the the Nephite and Jaradite nations. These stories are in the Book of Mormon because the tell us what we will face, Moroni tells us that both nations were destroyed by Secret combinations!

Moroni warned us in Ether 8: 23 - 24 "Wherefore, O ye Gentiles (that's us), it is wisdom in God that these things (the secret combinations) should be shown unto you, that thereby ye may repent of your sins(letting them into our country), and suffer not that these murderous combinations shall get above(leaders) you, which are built up to get power and gain-and the work, yea, even the work of destruction come upon you, yea, even the sword of the justice of the Eternal God shall fall upon you, to your overthrow and destruction if ye shall suffer these things to be.

Wherefore, the Lord commandeth you, when (not if) ye shall see these things come among you that ye shall awake to a sense of your awful situation, because of this secret combination which shall be among you; or wo be unto it, because of the blood of them who have been slain; for they shall cry from the dust for vengeance upon it (the combination), and also upon those who build it up."

He tells us of the 8 things that tell us if a group is a secret combination. This list is taken from the BofM.

1. Is it secret?
2. Is it a combination?
3. Is it murderous combination?
4. Does it attempt to get "above"us?
5. Is its goal "power and gain"
6. Does it bring the "work of destruction" upon us?
7. Does it seek "to overthrow the freedom of all lands, nations, and contries?"
8. Is Satan at the foundation?

He tells how all of these things are the design of many of the leaders of our country and the organizations they belong to. Since Dwight D. Eisenhower we have only had two presidents that have not belonged to secret organizations like the CFR (Council of Foreign Relations) are Reagan and Goldwater. These organizations have not posted minutes and are completely secrative. We are unable to find out even what their intent is. We only know who belongs to them.

Much was started in the years of Woodrow Wilson. The following happened on his watch:

1912: The election of Woodrow Wilson
1913: The enactment of hte Federal Reserve
1916: The Graduated Income Tax
1917: Entry into World War One
1917: The Bolshevik Revolution
1919: The Treaty of Versilles
1919: The Council on Foreign Relations
1920: Proposal of the League of Nations

These actions have had far reaching consequences and have effected all of us to degrees we are unaware! How Woodrow Wilson even became elected is an absolute stagering quandry! He was a nobody and didn't have the support of the people!

It's all very interesting and you need to read this book! It will help you understand what I am learning which is "our awful situation"!
