Pearls from the Morg [30 Dec 2007|09:30am]
The January 2008 Ensign magazine has a short article by Irene Eubanks (probably some elder Eubanks) "Putting My Marriage Before My Pride" - another pearl of wisdom on proper behavior for women trapped in a patriarchy. Here is my digest version:

"My husband really hurt my feelings and said things to me that he shouldn't have said. I cried a lot and prayed to the Lord to soften his heart. The Lord said "Do you want to be right or do you want to be married?" I realized that if I want to be married I always have to yield and I apologized to my husband for upsetting him and now we are happy again. In the future I'll know to always yield to keep my marriage."

Now, aren't you glad you are out of that brain washing machine?

Edit: maybe I was not fair in my "digest" summary of that article, so here it is in original:

reference please [30 Dec 2007|09:52pm]
Some time ago, in this community there was a reference to a scripture that basically said "Do not do as the unbelievers who cut a tree and bring it home and decorate it..." etc. I can't find it in the forum nor the regular scripture search engines, and I did try!

Anyone remembers?
