I need to write about the good I see in the world, because the bad and the evil is so... yuck. And it's everywhere. It's affecting people I love.
It's disguised behind kind smiles and lurking behind good intentions. The evil permeates all facets of government, business, and entertainment. It slowly grabs the righteous and leads them away before they realize they've even left safe ground. Evil is real, it's building up, and it's trying to win.
The evil will not win against me.
So, here's some good things I see in my world:
the gospel of Jesus Christ
freshly mowed grass
food in our kitchen
a beautiful, safe, wonderful, secure, dedicated, righteous home
incredible children: 7 of them
the Holy Ghost
prophets of God
the word of God
my ever-patient, funny, nerdy, hard-working, loyal, forgiving husband
And this chrome book. And the Cheerios on the table. Next to the scout book, near the string cheese wrapper, over by the backpack, next to the window where I see birds and the tulip tree.
Good is greater than evil. Good will triumph. Love will reign supreme. Faith, hope, charity --they will rule the world one day, I have no doubt.
