It can be a little challenging to live in a divide house with a wife who is is Mormon and wants to raise the kids Mormon and then me a Goat who knows it's just a ride
On top of that the neighborhood I live in is 95% Mormon and they come to my house to teach my wife and kids and make sure my wife and kids are protected from me, who they have decided is an anti-christ.
Then my sister called me balling a couple days ago telling me she wants her old brother back who used to go to the temple with her each week and wondering what went wrong....
We have a church congregation facebook page for our neighborhood. I posted some Jesus quotes from the book of John on Sunday where Jesus talks to Nicodemus about being born of the spirit and just enjoying the ride here and now and being like the wind not knowing where we came from or where we are going and how he calls himself The Son of Man living in heaven on earth.
They didn't like that at all. I was promptly removed and blocked from the neighborhood facebook page and then the Bishop on Sunday stopped me at church in the hall and lectured me and tried to correct my false doctrines.
Anyway, who cares really.
What did I expect.
I'm learning to not engage at all and just placate but it is a challenge to abide sometimes.
I'm getting over it.
If it's just a ride then I should just let the wife do what she wants with the kiddos and do the whole church thing if she wants and instead of fight it just lead by example and stay chill.
I would stop going to church if the wifey didn't want to go but that would create contention and I could just as easily go so I just tag along.
Enough about me, just releasing some pent up things.
Been struck by lightning 7 times, but the Universe keeps reminding me I'm lucky to be alive.
You can be as mad as a mad dog at the way things went....you can swear and curse the fates...but when it comes to the end...you have to let it go
Smelly has also been dealt a bit of a crazy hand, who hasn't, I have no excuses.
The Dude Abides
