Penelope's Recent Updates

Penelope liked a quote
“At some point, God will ask you to sacrifice on his altar not only your stories about your own life but your version of his stories as well. Your softly lit watercolor felt-board version of scripture stories and church history must, like all your stories, be abandoned at his feet, and the messy, vibrant, and inconvenient truths that characterize God's real work with real people will have to take center stage. If they don't, then how will God's work in your hungry messy, and inconvenient life ever do the same?
When God knocks, don't creep to the door and look through the peephole to see if he looks like you thought he would. Rush to the door and throw it open.”
Adam S. Miller

This was quite a surprise to find. I've been feeling annoyed with dystopia for the past year or so, and have not found anything I've liked in that time. I don't know what made me decide to read this book when I passed on it many times in the past. Wh ...more

Ezra Taft Benson
“Since God created man with certain unalienable rights, and man, in turn, created government to help secure and safeguard those rights, it follows that man is superior to the creature which he created. Man is superior to government and should remain master over it, not the other way around. Even the non-believer can appreciate the logic of this relationship.”
Ezra Taft Benson

Ezra Taft Benson
“For nearly six thousand years, God has held you in reserve to make your appearance in the final days before the Second Coming of the Lord. . . . God has saved for the final
inning some of His strongest and most valiant children, who will help bear off the kingdom triumphantly. That is where you come in, for you are the generation that must be prepared to meet your God. . . .”
Ezra Taft Benson

Ezra Taft Benson
“...there must be a renewal of the spirit of our forefathers, an
appreciation of the American way of life, a strengthening of muscle and sinew and the character of the nation. America needs guts as well as guns.
National character is the core of national defense.”
Ezra Taft Benson

“Were those still tears in his eyes? Would that they could hide his crimes.”
Brandon Sanderson, The Way of Kings
