 Some awesome friends of mine know how much I love Mitt.  So they invited me to go to a breakfast where he would be attending, this morning.  Since my husband is here he was able to come too, which was really exciting.  (we never get to do cool stuff like this)  He liked Mitt, but he wasn’t as pumped as I was about him.  Well after listening to Mitt talk my husband is now a serious Mitt fan as well 🙂

At the end of his short talk he asked if anyone had any questions.  A few stood and asked him some questions, and then I raised my hand and he called on me!  It was so exciting, because I was in a room full of congressmen and women and senators, and me a lil house wife.  Anyways I did not have a question I just had a little story, and this is what I told him,

Five nights ago we had a huge storm roll in.  We had such strong winds that trees were knocked down.  I woke in the morning upset because I just knew my ‘Mitt Romney for President’ sign would be long gone.  So I went outside and my sons basketball hoop was knocked over, and so I walked to the front of the house and the little plastic Mitt sign was STILL THERE!  Now I am not calling this a miracle, but I definetley think it’s a sign  🙂

Anyways I was able to share that with him, and it was fun!  He is such a good guy.  I hope that America will realize (before it is too late)  that we need him to clean up this mess we are in.  If anyone can do it I believe he can!

I’m curious to know who you like and who you don’t like.  It’s probably obvious that I LOVE Mitt Romney.  I was able to meet him last summer, and I think he is just great!!!  He has the morals and the strength that this country desperately needs!  (and he’s Mormon, what a plus!) 

 So lets discuss some politics!  This should be fun   🙂

I BELIEVE IN CHRIST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I know there are many out there who think Mormons don’t believe in Christ.  To you I say, I BELIEVE IN CHRIST!!!!!!!!!!!  He saved me from my sins.  He freed me.  I love Him with all my heart and with all my soul!  My favorite hymn happens to be titled, I Believe in Christ!  I want to post the words to this song here.  When I hear it sung My soul fills with joy, when I read the words, my eyes fill with tears.  I love Him, He is My Savior, My friend.  I will live for Him and I would die for Him!

 134
I Believe in Christ

31243, Hymns, I Believe in Christ, no. 134

1. I believe in Christ; he is my King!
With all my heart to him I’ll sing;
I’ll raise my voice in praise and joy,
In grand amens my tongue employ.
I believe in Christ; he is God’s Son.
On earth to dwell his soul did come.
He healed the sick; the dead he raised.
Good works were his; his name be praised.

2. I believe in Christ; oh blessed name!
As Mary’s Son he came to reign
’Mid mortal men, his earthly kin,
To save them from the woes of sin.
I believe in Christ, who marked the path,
Who did gain all his Father hath,
Who said to men: “Come, follow me,
That ye, my friends, with God may be.”

3. I believe in Christ—my Lord, my God!
My feet he plants on gospel sod.
I’ll worship him with all my might;
He is the source of truth and light.
I believe in Christ; he ransoms me.
From Satan’s grasp he sets me free,
And I shall live with joy and love
In his eternal courts above.

4. I believe in Christ; he stands supreme!
From him I’ll gain my fondest dream;
And while I strive through grief and pain,
His voice is heard: “Ye shall obtain.”
I believe in Christ; so come what may,
With him I’ll stand in that great day
When on this earth he comes again
To rule among the sons of men.

Turning the other cheek

 Here is a recent article I read regarding the folks who stand outside conference and scream “hellfire” at the LDS.

Mormons take the high road in dealing with conference protesters

By Paul Rolly

 “It’s too bad more national media attention isn’t focused on the so-called “street preachers” who trek to Salt Lake City twice a year to scream insults at the LDS faithful and their children who are committing the vile sin of walking to a church service.
    It’s particularly a shame the media don’t spend more time reporting that spectacle since presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s Mormon religion has been made into a major political issue by elements of the “traditional Christian” Republican hegemony.
    “Mainstream” Christians often say they wouldn’t vote for Romney because he belongs to a religion that is a cult.
    That’s always sounded a bit Oliver Cromwellian to me, but I’m just a pagan.
    Had there been national media exposure, however, “Christian” voters around the country would have seen those who claim to represent their view of religion acting the fool, hopping around, yelling at little kids that they are going to hell and whining about their constitutional rights being violated because they couldn’t stand on the sidewalk impeding the movement of Mormons walking to and from General Conference.
    They are allowed to stand on the grass with their signs, as well as the curbs and next to the cross-walks, as long as they don’t get in the way of the conference-goers.
    It was the Mormons, from what I could see last Sunday (I stood on the grass, too), who took the high road. They were the ones just practicing their constitutional right of quietly worshiping the way they choose. They were the ones doing their best to ignore harassment and insult, and not responding in kind.
    Salt Lake City attorneys have gone to great pains to develop a policy that protects the Mormon-baiters’ constitutional right of free speech, while making sure the Mormons’ right to practice their religion (which also is in the First Amendment) is not inhibited.
    Often, it is difficult to discern whether that fine line might have been crossed.
    The unsung heroes who should be commended here are the Salt Lake City police officers who draw the unenviable job of standing patrol during conference and keeping the peace between a deeply religious group of people attending a sacred event and a bunch of epithet-throwers intent on disparaging that group’s beliefs – in the name of Jesus.
    One protester was dressed in a cheap Halloween Satan outfit and was armed with a hand-held noise machine in case his bizarre appearance wasn’t enough to attract the attention he craved.
    Others waved sacred LDS temple garments in the faces of the worshipers as they walked to conference.
    I wonder what would happen if they decided to deface an image of the Mother Mary on a street corner in Belfast, or burn the Quran in Baghdad, or open a hot dog stand in Tel Aviv?
    There were only about 15 Bible-thumpers protesting LDS conference last week, so it’s unfair to paint the entire fundamentalist Christian movement with their brush. But they express in their own obnoxious way many of the sentiments that have been uttered by preachers in Christian churches around the country and among those God-fearing folks who answer pollsters’ questions about Mitt Romney.
    Remember the comments from Paige Patterson, president of the Southern Baptist Convention? He said he would try to save the Mormons from their path to hell when the Southern Baptists held their international conference in Salt Lake City in 1998.
    To me, it’s no coincidence that since the fundamentalist Christian Right has gained influence in the George W. Bush version of the national Republican Party we have become much more divided as a country.
    And the Mormons in this reddest of the red states are among the victims of the ensuing bigotry. ”

Well said! What a great article!  I’m hoping to get to conference next October with my family.  If these people scream at my kids I will do my best to take the “high road” But i’m not promising anything.  

This is why I have so much respect for members of the Church of Jesus Christ Of Latter Day Saints.  They are such good examples of love and charity and turning the other cheek!!!!!!!!!!!
