So it's finally starting to look and feel like fall around here. It's been cold for awhile at night and in the early morning, but mid 70s by early afternoon, but now the leaves have changed colors and are strewing themselves all over. Particularly in the pool that we never have used. I kind of love it. I also kind of hate it because it starts getting dark around 4:30 and I know it's only going to get darker earlier and earlier until the winter solstice. I've been doing a lot of photography lately, cause that's kind of my job and all. I kind of love it. Sometimes it's very hard though. The end. (I can't believe I made this about the weather. Snooze fest.)
I don't write about deep things here much because I like lots of things and I have add and it's easy to skim the surface and you can tell I like easy based on the frequency of my updates lately. But I wanted to write this even though it's difficult.
First off, I'm a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. A mormon. (Cue big gasp.) Not really a huge shocker, but I don't write about it a ton so I thought I should at least put it out there. Lately, there's been a lot of groups within the church. Some want to be ordained to the priesthood of God. Others think that these people are stupid, selfish, comical, deluded, etc. I'm in neither camp really. If the Lord would like women to have the priesthood I'll take it, but if not I won't stomp on and belittle those who ask/plead/call for it. Nothing gets my gumption up more than a minority group being ridiculed, told to stay in their place, leave, or just shut up in more words than that. I don't believe in same gender marriage, but if someone tried to stop or hurt someone for doing so I think I would stand between them. I don't know all the feelings or rhetoric of either group, although the loudest of the naysayers make me cringe to be associated with them. Regardless, I believe in the gospel of Jesus Christ. I believe that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is His church populated by his imperfect, yet striving people. I am one of them.
