The Mormon Third Eye went dark on yesterday, Sunday, May 27th 2012. For the first time in 251 Sundays, I did not post. Why?
I wanted to make a point about eternal priorities and perspective, and those who find significance in patterns will find this important.
I love to blog. Writing is my favorite hobby. It provides a productive release valve for the mix of seemingly oddball ideas trapped in my head. However, it is only a hobby. On the other hand, my wife is my life. She is my reason for living. When I stand before my Savior to account for the accomplishments of my life, he will want to know how well I treated my eternal companion. My dedication to contributing to this blog every week will be way, way down on the list. In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if it never made the list.
Last weekend we celebrated 28 years of an enduring marriage relationship with a short, relaxing and rejuvenating getaway. Weekend plans did not include time to post on MTE. I was too busy spending time with the wife of my life.
Family comes first. Everything else is fluff, including the Mormon Third Eye. 252 more Sundays from now, when readers reminisce about that one Sunday when the MTE went dark, they will be reminded how vitally important their own spouses and families are.
