I am making another post for my FDREL 121 class. I really enjoyed the lead student's presentation this week. He showed some clips of a living scripture video about Alma the younger. I am really having a similar experience as Alma. Even though it is not my child, it is the person I was supposed to spend eternity with. About a year ago my husband of 18 years left me with no warning but a text at 2:30 in the morning. It was such a shock and I had a difficult time processing what was really happening. It has been a difficult year but I am getting far enough away from the shock now that I have more perspective. I was just telling a friend of mine yesterday that I don't hate him. I hate Satan. My ex has been hijacked by Satan. He left everything that Heavenly Father had blessed him with for the pleasures of the world. He has adopted the philosophy, "Eat, Drink and be Merry for tomorrow we die!" Having a family and responsibilities was just too much effort. He wants to just enjoy life and do what he wants to do when he wants to do it. What he doesn't realize is that as time goes by he will have nothing to show for his "fun". He has lost the trust of his wife and children as it says in the scriptures. It is very important that we remember what is important in this life. I know this post is for our religion class but it seems to intertwine with our GS 120 class. We were learning about family relationships in that class this week. Even in the proclamation to the family it talks about how our family relationships are central to our Creator's plan. Our family is our most precious gift. I am grateful for the example that Alma set as he never gave up on his son. Even though there is no chance of reconciling with my ex I do hope the best for him and hope eventually he decides to come back to the gospel. All we can do is love those that wander and set a good example.
