Early Osmond Pioneers
This picture is of William the Conqueror (Lichfield, Cathedral)
Saint Osmund was a Norman priest and chaplain to William the Conqueror (St. Mary’s. Winkfield, Berkshire)
The story of the Osmonds begins with the Norman invasion of England. In the fall of 1066 AD, William the Duke of Normandy (1027-1087) , crossed the English Channel with about 600 ships and 12,000 men. At the battle of Hastings, William—who was also known as William the Conqueror—defeated King Harold of England and his Anglo-Saxon forces. On Christmas Day, 1066, William was crowned King of England, and he eventually rewarded his Norman supporters with large grants of land and important positions.
My Great Grandfather, George Osmond Jr. (1836-1913) left England in 1854 and sailed to the United States, eventually residing at different times in Utah, Idaho and Wyoming. He was called by Brigham Young who was President of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to serve as the first Stake President in Afton, Wyoming.
My Osmond Pedigree (which I am trying to complete) is as follows:
John Osmund – 1575 -Burford, Oxfordshire
John Osmund – 1604 – Burford, Oxfordshire
John Osmund – 1635 – Burford, Oxfordshire
John Osmund – 1663 – Burford, Oxfordshire
John Osmund – 1692 – Burford, Oxfordshire
George Osmond – 1716 – Bicester, Oxfordshire
George Osmond – 1745 – Bicester, Oxfordshire

George Osmond Jr. – 1837 – Hackney, London
Rulon Osmond – 1893 – Afton, Wyoming
George Virl Osmond – 1917 – Etna, Wyoming

BRING ON TOMORROWS!
It’s the Last Chapter in the Book of Life.
From the Beginning we knew wrong and right . . . would
Have to be decided, would have to be made clear.
Maybe that’t the reason we’re both standing here.
In the Last Chapter, I will make my life
Fill all the pages, the Author said to write.
To make a perfect ending, to make all dreams come true.
That’s why He gave me heaven. That’s why He gave me you!

There is no stopping our hearts and the joy we feel for each other and with the product of our love, our family. We will be together forever! What security that gives. It’s as if we have been welded together with our children sealed to us forever. This secure knowledge and love is available and can be had by every couple with the Lord’s blessings when done His way, in His House, by His anointed ones done by His authority. What a great plan of life!

Life is T.U.F.F. (Tough)!
We are living in a “T.U.F.F.” world. (Spelling? I will explain!)
Yes, life can but tough but there are ‘OPPOSITES IN ALL THINGS‘. (up-down, right-left, light-dark, male-female, good-bad,etc.)
It is ALSO a WONDERFUL WORLD!
When times get tough, which they are, we get T.U.F.F. and work our way out of any challenges.
You see, I have had M.S. for over 28 years. When I first got it, I decided that I would get T.U.F.F. and win the fight! How? I created this personal slogan:
T. “Target” your challenge.
U. “Understand” everything about it.
F. “Focus”. Don’t ‘Shotgun’ it, but ‘Rifle in on it.
F. “Fight”. You MUST fight for what you want.
Most everyone I know today faces ‘T.U.F.F.’ financial challenges. We have found a WAY to help others become financially strong and independent.

WE WILL SCHEDULE A TIME TO SHOW YOU HOW!

“Now, repentance could not come unto men

which also was eternal as the life of the soul should be,
affixed opposite to the plan of happiness,
which was as eternal also as the life of the soul.”

What It’s Like To Be Old
I am so thankful that I got MS. It has taught me many important things I couldn’t have learned otherwise and brought me home to my sweet wife Suzanne.
It has allowed me to be with my wife, 8 sons, 7 daughters-in-law, and our 25 grandkids.
I have had more time to do the things I enjoy, to be a publisher of peace by sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ, to have served 10 years in the temple or house of the Lord, and to be around my grandkids as a good grandpa should!
In talking to others of my age, I often hear of their heartaches, bad choices, wishing they could go back, desires to be and act young, bitter attitudes, and of course the positive who are grateful to be alive along with some wonderful memories they have had.
As I keep working and trying to help Strengthen Families and help others to become self reliant, toxic free, and financially secure . . . , I still enjoy writing write and lyrics/poems.
I share one that came to me last night that deals with . . .
“What It’s Like To Be Old”.
“Wherefore, children shall grow up until they become old;
old men shall die; but they shall not sleep in the dust,
but they shall be changed in the twinkling of an eye.”

Be Perfect In All Things
In these last days it’s as if a tug boat . . . is
pulling out to sea . . . the
hearts of all our children . . our
future and posterity . . . to
drown in filth and wickedness . . . where no
truth and light can be found. Why
aren’t we sounding the sirens . . . is there no
doctor to be found? What the
Evil one’s been doing . . he secretly
designed before this world began . . where
all God’s children had gathered to hear about a
physical life . . called The Plan.
There was One who stood forth and was willing . . . to
lead all and show us The Way . . . to
return back home to Father . . . and for our
sins the price he would pay.
We are here and living the last chapter . . .
in the book of life. The keys to
open the doors of heaven are before us . . if we
seek to choose the right.
Signs of the times are upon us . . . with the
separation of the wheat and tares.
Who will endure with oil in their lamps . . . when the
Lord returns again and appears?
…And when we reflect also, that he has called us to be perfect in all things,
that we may be prepared to meet him in peace when he comes in his glory
with all the holy angels, we feel to exhort our brethren with boldness,
to be humble and prayerful, to walk indeed as children of the light
and of the day, that they may have grace to withstand every temptation,
and to overcome every evil in the worthy name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
For be assured brethren, that the day is truly near when the Master
of the house will rise up and shut the door, and none but such as have on
a wedding garment will be permitted to enjoy a seat at the marriage supper!
“Yea, a voice crying—Prepare ye the way of the Lord,
prepare ye the supper of the Lamb,
make ready for the Bridegroom.”

For A Wise Purpose!

For A Wise Purpose!
“And I do this for a wise purpose; for thus it whispereth me,
according to the workings of the Spirit of the Lord which is in me.
And now, I do not know all things;
but the Lord knoweth all things which are to come;
wherefore, he worketh in me to do according to his will.”
Words of Mormon 1:7
We now know why The Book of Mormon
was written “for a wise purpose”.
About 600 B.C. in Jerusalem there lived a man named Lehi who with his family was told by God that Jerusalem was to be destroyed, which it was. He and his family were directed to leave Jerusalem and go to “a promised land”. They were to first secure “The Plates of Laban” which contained the first five Books of the Old Testament, and to leave their belongings and travel into the wilderness where they would be shown how to build a ship. When completed, they would be directed to that “promised land” in North America which we know today as The United States of America, the promised land.
(As recorded in Second Nephi Chapter four of The Book of Mormon,
Lehi counsels and blesses his posterity.)
(Notes in parenthesis are to help the reader with these scriptures.)
(Lehi is recorded as speaking to his son Joseph.)
1 And now I speak unto you, Joseph, my last-born. Thou wast born in the wilderness of mine afflictions; yea, in the days of my greatest sorrow did thy mother bear thee.
2 And may the Lord consecrate also unto thee this land, which is a most precious land, for thine inheritance and the inheritance of thy seed with thy brethren, for thy security forever, if it so be that ye shall keep the commandments of the Holy One of Israel.
4 For behold, thou art the fruit of my loins; and I am a descendant of Joseph who was carried captive into Egypt. And great were the covenants of the Lord which he made unto Joseph.
5 Wherefore, Joseph truly saw our day. And he obtained apromise of the Lord, that out of the fruit of his loins the Lord God would raise up a righteous branch unto the house of Israel; not the Messiah, but a branch which was to be broken off, nevertheless, to be remembered in the covenants of the Lord that the Messiah should be made manifest unto them in the latter days, in the spirit of power, unto the bringing of them out ofdarkness unto light—yea, out of hidden darkness and out of captivity unto freedom.
6 For Joseph truly testified, saying: A seer shall the Lord my God raise up, who shall be a choice seer unto the fruit of my loins.
7 Yea, Joseph truly said: Thus saith the Lord unto me: A choice seer will I raise up out of the fruit of thy loins; and he shall be esteemed highly among the fruit of thy loins. And unto him will I give commandment that he shall do a work for the fruit of thy loins, his brethren, which shall be of great worth unto them, even to the bringing of them to the knowledge of the covenants which I have made with thy fathers.
8 And I will give unto him a commandment that he shall do none other work, save the work which I shall command him. And I will make him great in mine eyes; for he shall do my work.
9 And he shall be great like unto Moses, whom I have said I would raise up unto you, to deliver my people, O house of Israel.
10 And Moses will I raise up, to deliver thy people
out of the land of Egypt.
11 But a seer will I raise up out of the fruit of thy loins; and unto him will I give power to bring forth my word (The Book of Mormon) unto the seed of thy loins—and not to the bringing forth my word only, saith the Lord, but to the convincing them of my word, which shall have already gone forth among them. (The Bible)
12 Wherefore, the fruit of thy loins shall write (The Book of Mormon); and the fruit of the loins of Judah shall write (The Bible); and that which shall be written (The Book of Mormon) by the fruit of thy loins, and also that which shall be written by the fruit of the loins of Judah, (The Bible) shall grow together, unto the confounding of false doctrines and laying down of contentions, and establishing peace among the fruit of thy loins, and bringingthem to the knowledge of their fathers in the latter days, and also to the knowledge of my covenants, saith the Lord.
13 And out of weakness he shall be made strong, in that day when my work shall commence among all my people, unto the restoring thee, (The restoration of the Gospel of Jesus Christ) O house of Israel, saith the Lord.
14 And thus prophesied Joseph, saying: Behold, that seer will the Lord bless; and they that seek to destroy him shall be confounded; for this promise, which I have obtained of the Lord, of the fruit of my loins, shall be fulfilled. Behold, I am sure of the fulfilling of this promise;
15 And his name (Joseph Smith) shall be called after me (Joseph of Egypt); and it shall be after the name of his father (Joseph Smith Sr.). And he shall be like unto me; for the thing, which the Lord shall bring forth by his hand, by the power of the Lord shall bring my people unto salvation.
16 Yea, thus prophesied Joseph: I am sure of this thing, even as I am sure of the promise of Moses; for the Lord hath said unto me, I will preserve thy seed forever.
17 And the Lord hath said: I will raise up a Moses; and I will give power unto him in a rod; and I will give judgment unto him in writing. Yet I will not loose his tongue, that he shall speak much, for I will not make him mighty in speaking. But I will write unto him my law, by the finger of mine own hand ; and I will make a spokesman for him.
18 And the Lord said unto me also: I will raise up unto the fruit of thy loins; and I will make for him a spokesman. And I, behold, I will give unto him that he shall write the writing of the fruit of thy loins, unto the fruit of thy loins; and the spokesman of thy loins shall declare it.
19 And the words which he shall write shall be the words which are expedient in my wisdom should go forth unto the fruit of thy loins. And it shall be as if the fruit of thy loins had cried unto them from the dust; for I know their faith.
20 And they shall cry from the dust ; yea, even repentance unto their brethren, even after many generations have gone by them. And it shall come to pass that their cry shall go, even according to the simpleness of their words.
21 Because of their faith their words shall proceed forth out of my mouth unto their brethren who are the fruit of thy loins; and the weakness of their words will I make strong in their faith, unto the remembering of my covenant which I made unto thy fathers.
22 And now, behold, my son Joseph, after this manner did my father of old prophesy.
23 Wherefore, because of this covenant thou art blessed; for thy seed shall not be destroyed, for they shall hearken unto the words of the book.
24 And there shall rise up one mighty among them, who shall do much good, both in word and in deed, being an instrument in the hands of God, with exceeding faith, to work mighty wonders, and do that thing which is great in the sight of God, unto the bringing to pass much restoration unto the house of Israel, and unto the seed of thy brethren.
25 And now, blessed art thou, Joseph. Behold, thou art little; wherefore hearken unto the words of thy brother, Nephi, and it shall be done unto thee even according to the words which I have spoken. Remember the words of thy dying father. Amen.
I testify that these things are true. I know that the one of the purposes of the Book of Mormon was to be another witness that Jesus is The Christ and Savior of all mankind; that Jesus is our Shepherd and Savior of ALL MANKIND around the world; that we are among the “…other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.” John 10:16
We also know that during the days of Constantine and the Nicene Creed, about 325-400 AD, many precious parts and lost books that were taken out of the Bible.
When The Bible AND the Book of Mormon are both read and considered together as one, the Gospel of Jesus Christ with all of its precious parts will make more sense and those confusing parts of the gospel because of those “precious parts that were taken away” become more clear as Jesus intended. We look forward to even MORE records of Jesus Christ that were also recorded and are yet to come forth but which have been hidden from the world for a “wise purpose” of the Lord.
I invite everyone from all faiths to get a FREE copy of The Book of Mormon and read it for yourself. It is the history of the descendants of Lehi’s family or those so called “natives” that Columbus said came out to greet him with gifts when he first landed in America. The native descendants thought Columbus was the “return of that bearded white God”, even Jesus Christ, who promised them that He would once again return. This will help you to understand the things that we have in common with many Christian Churches.
Yes, Jesus Christ visited Lehi’s descendants in the Heartland of North America after He was crucified. His appearance and those things which he said are recorded in The Book of Mormon. Before Jesus Christ returns once again, this world will go through a cleansing of the wicked which is also recorded in The Book of Mormon. Therein also lies “a wise purpose” as scriptures warn us those things which we must do to be preserved.
