I Just Wanted to Say.....

Postby Songbird » Wed Feb 23, 2011 9:35 am

I have been thinking lately about all the things coming down the pike at us faster than any of us could imagine. I remember posting the thread on "Foreboding" and how much response it got...

Now, I am thinking with all that has happened since then, that I would like to express my gratitude for those of you on this forum who have been so instrumental in my personal preparations. I want to do this now, because if the pace of disintegration continues or speeds up, I wanted to share my thoughts with those of you who I know, but don't know, before the opportunity completely slides by.

Oddly enough, we come to know each other through the posts we all make. We come to admire the strengths that each individual has and glean from them as much as we can...Col Flaff for posting unusual, but useful information and opinion, OI for the passion he feels on the market (and for the changes he has made in his posts), Mummy for his knowledge on the market, Jules for her balanced opinion, Toto for his level of preparation and his willingness to help others, Brian for providing the forum and websites to help us be better educated, Dr Jones for sharing his vast store of information that he has gathered in the area of science, Moonwhim and Freedom fighter for offering news and opinion.

All of you have shared at one time or another something of yourselves that have made my preparation better and inspired me to do more, to go farther, and to try things I would not normally have tried on my own: (like the thought of raising chickens! :-\ ) (It is still a thought!!). Gardening, composting, worms, garlic with honey and cayenne :-s , things I would never have considered or known how to do. This is just a short list...

It may be that in the future, we are unable to communicate, as was seen recently in Egypt,. So, I wanted to take the time and opportunity to say thanks to all of you I have mentioned, and all of you I have not. The pebbles of information and inspiration you have “thrown” in my pond have been so useful. I am most grateful and I know that your good work benefits far more than just me. My heart is warmed by the knowledge that there are so many wonderful people out there who form a “family” (if you will), for those of us who have no gospel family. Thank you for leading the way and helping me (and I am guessing) so many of us, along the way.

Blessings, hugs and love to you all!
Songbird

PS...I forgot to add thanks for all the wonderful spiritual insights so many of you have made about all the great Gospel topics discussed. I am absolutely amazed at how much so many of you know and have studied. I have a long way to go, and you all have given me a great measuring stick. Thanks!

Right back at you. Seriously. I am interested how my posts have changed - there have been some major changes in my life since I joined the forum, I wonder if that has made for a "kinder, gentler" me or what the change is you are talking about.

I really appreciate all the folks you mentioned (because I either agree with or have been convinced by them) but I also want to say thanks to the people that I haven't agreed with a good part of the time. I am not going to name names, but they know who they are. Even though I may not agree, it has initiated some sincere soul searching, some powerful spiritual experiences, and almost often has left me with a far greater understanding or a new perspective that I didn't have.

I will name Rosabella, because even though we have had some strong disagreements, I have really, really appreciated her insights on New Age spirituality. I feel bad that it appears that my strong personality appears to chase her off this site from time to time.

Amen and Amen....I'm most grateful for those who do not share the same opinions and as stated....challenge one's paradigms and perceptions - really push a person to think it through or seek out further light and knowledge.....though in the midst of this challenge (paradigm disruption) the feelings may not be so brotherly/sisterly!

Brent,
Are you saying that about me personally? If not, what is your comment about?

I was attempting to lighten the accusation for whoever that comment was directed to. Furthermore, I think it was extremely cold hearted. Shame on them.

I've never heard that before :-\


I made it up spontaniously upon reading that post. Thought it would reverse the crumby statement some. Do you like it?

I propose that everyone makes their own LDS Freedom Forum t-shirt! Then when the internet is taken down, we can identify each other in real life!

Honestly, I thought the "Satan" comment was aimed at me and I took no offense. It was jsut that in one heated thread, I was practically accused of being Satan's lieutenant because I said something rather "blunt" to someone right as everything else in the world was crumbling around them.

So I took the "Satan" comment as an observation, not that he was directing it at anyone else...
