Handstand Champ

There is a list of things that I am going to do when this extra weight is off and my muscles are back and one of them on the top of the list is reclaiming my title as Handstand Champ.

Scott use to win me once in a while.

 (He thinks that walking on your hands counts. But walking makes it easier, duh. Try holding one babe.)

But now I can barely even do a handstand.

The kids are getting pretty good too.

Nothing like a Sunday Evening Handstand contest.

I will win one.

This is a warning for you Scott.

It is not far distant!

Erin, I am so sorry you thought I was offended by you. I was not. And I'm so sorry if I have offended you. We don't know each other from Adam, and so my post was quite thoughtless and careless, and really bold. I hope you'll forgive me. I am sorry.

Really, I was raised in a home where I was completely unprepared by my parents to know how to handle the 'real world.' They virtually ignored me from the time I was 10 until the time I was 22. It was horrible. They completely relied on public school to teach me. In fact, they often say (even brag) that a parents job is to give their children a roof over their heads and food in their mouths and that the world will teach them everything else. They completely ignore 'The Family: A Proclamation to the World.' They absolved themselves from teaching me and my 11 siblings. The world did end up teaching me. And it has been a treacherous road for me to straighten out all of the lies the world told me.

Anyway, again I am so sorry for being so bold.

It is the Saviors work we are involved in. He loves us. When our worlds don't go as perfectly as we hope and plan, He is meek, He is kind, He wants us to fight evil- like apathy, worldliness, laziness, thinking we're better than non-members, coveting, worshipping idols (such as clothes, degrees, etc.) and He accepts our efforts to turn to Him. I don't know if you really feel like He is hard on you, but coming from a stranger who doesn't know you, it sounds like you do. Just my thoughts...

Keep up the good fight my new friend in the Lord in Blackfoot, Idaho.
