Give It All Away

I mentioned all of my volunteer work (specifically my volunteer web coding and designing) to one of my friends. He asked, "Why aren't you getting paid?"

For a bizarre second, this question made absolutely no sense to me as I wondered, "Why would I ask to get paid?"

Maybe one day I'll figure out this whole money thing.

In other news... and I certainly don't mean to disparage the LDS church or its members... but, I've been sympathizing greatly with the families from the recent FLDS church's raid -- not just the ones who finally are liberated from a life they felt was harmful, but also those who sincerely believe that such a life (specifically those who aren't really happy living such a life) is necessary, unchangeable, core gospel and commandment to gain the greatest approval of God, eternal life and salvation.

As I hear both sides of the story, I shiver in familiarity of situation... and my heart goes out to all those who so desperately seek peace and hope and security.
