Easter Sunday

As I sit in my home today and I ponder the significance of this day,
Easter Sunday, I realize the bounty of my blessing are the result of the great Redeemer,  Jesus Christ. My heart is filled with humble gratitude for Him. Because of what He did thousands of years ago, in the Garden of Gethsemane,  on the Cross of Calvary  and Garden Tomb, I and all who live can accept Him and His Atonement and live today surrounded in His Peace, His shelter, His love.

The Great Redeemer Lives



EASTER 
My favorite of all religious holiday.





Even my fur baby, Cash, is content and secure on this Easter Sunday. 

My pray is that we may all be partakers of
HIS PEACE.

A Beautiful Granddaughter and The Prom

Hello everyone!
I hope you are all doing well
and hopefully enjoying some spring weather.


Here in Utah, it is typical Spring weather.
Some days are sunny and some days are snowy.
Go figure!


This last weekend was this little beauties
Prom
She is my granddaughter. . .and I think she is
Beautiful.

The Prom in my little part of the world is a
Big Deal!
A young girl anticipates with excitement the
day she is a Junior in high school 
for her Junior Prom.


The dress is carefully picked-out.
The shoes, the nail polish
the hair-do. 
Every little detail must be perfect

Ah and of course the date!


The perfect match for the perfect night

Everything was exactly as this sweet girl and boy had anticipated.
My Granddaughter had a wonderful time.  She said it
was all she had expected and more.


But, my thoughts always turn to the little Princess who never
gets ask to her Junior Prom.
The ones who never get the opportunity to pick out
the perfect dress, shoes, hair-do. . .
My heart hurts for them
The hurt they feel is real, don't kid yourself and
think it really doesn't matter.  
It does matter to
Someone. 



I can't help but think of the ones who never 
experience being young, and happy, 
and have families and friends who love them.


Too many have shattered dreams and promises.

April Happiness ~ Easter Celebration

Hello Everyone!
Did I ever mention how much I love 
April
Oh yes, I do. . .and I love it even more when 
Easter is celebrated in April.
Of course I do a little decorating to show how much
I love this time of year.


Easter makes me Happy!


A new little friend, Bern the Bunny
Created by ME.
He makes me smile!


Of course Little Precious April 
Brings me joy!
For many reasons she is a special part of me.

Aside from all the cute little decorating I do for Easter,
my main focus is on the 
Savior Jesus Christ.
I like Easter. . . it is a time I can really focus
on the real reason I celebrate this sacred holiday
and other sacred holidays.
"For if there were no Easter there would be no Christmas"
(Prophet Gordon B. Hinckley)
It is so true there would be no reason for celebrating anything.
Because there would be no meaning to life, and living, and happiness
if it weren't for Easter. . .The Atonement and His Resurrection. 

Today is Palm Sunday
Jesus' Triumphant Entry into Jerusalem.


This week I will continue reading  from the New Testament
in the King James Version of the Bible
about the events leading up to
 His Atonement, Crucifixion and His Resurrection.

Springtime In Utah

It is Springtime in Utah!
And it is beautiful.
Isn't it wonderful to have the
diversity of the seasons?
At times the winter can seem so long,
but I know Spring will come.


The flowers are starting to give the world some color.


I have been watching my little back yard,
 and sure enough, 
 I see things starting to poke their heads out of the ground.
It is so fun to watch the new life of springtime.



Utah is very diverse in especially our landscape.
The northern part is snow capped mountains
and southern part is red-rocks and desert.


I must say I am a little partial to the snow capped mountains
of northern Utah.
This particular mountain is one of my favorites.
Mt. Timpanogos
The Sleeping Princess.

When I look at the beauty of spring or any season, I
can't help but give thanks for the beautiful world 
in which I live in.  I stop and take it all in....
I am truly in awe with all that the Lord
has created for me and for everyone to enjoy.

His Peace


He will wipe away all tears.
He will mend broken hearts.
He is the Savior of the world.
Jesus Christ
