This and That

Hello my friends!

Do you ever have a few
"This and That's"
just hanging around and you 
really don't know what 
to do with them?

I had plans in the beginning to
post about them.
But just never got around to it.
S0. . . here are a few pictures
of This and That,

Old high school friends.
I will surely do a post
about our journey of friendship.

On of my beautiful granddaughter.
I will for sure do a future post about my 
6 granddaughters and 3 grandsons.

Ah, my cute little Great Auntie and my BFF.
I will do a post about my incredible Great Auntie
She has a birthday coming up soon.

I have many post in mind about
the many things I have made.

And of course my home.
I enjoy making simple decorating changes
and I will show you.

My cousin's home.
I will be showing you 
cute homes.
With great ideas
and inspiration.

I am surrounded with so much
beauty and I want to show you.

So stayed tuned. . . more is coming.
Many posts are in the process
using some of my 
"This and That"

Home Decor Inspiration

I want to make some simple
Decorating  changes.
Nothing big, just something different
than my ordinary,
In other words 
I Am In A Rut!
So. I went visiting other homes.
Right here in Blogland,
There are a lot of
Talented Homemakers.
The first one I visited I
just happened to come upon.
I was actually looking for
Free Printables.

I like the simplicity of the door, wreath and porch

I love the coffee table

Bright open and cheerful.
Krista lives on the West Coast.
I am not a Coast decorator.
Goodness I live in-land high in the 
Mountain West.
But I like her "blue" color scheme.
I am more of a color person

 I love, love blue.
I also like the clean simplicity of
Just a cute home, I think.
And I did get a few ideas to use in my home.

He Is Not Here ~ He Is Risen

A Very Happy Easter to
all of my 
and Friends

 Perhaps one of the most profound words ever written 
in the Holy Scriptures is the 
tender and loving word of the risen Lord 
Jesus Christ
pronouncing her name.

He is not dead.
He Lives!

I do Believe in Him
as His
Promise of Life Eternal.

He Is Risen

Easter's On It's Way!

I have said it before and I will say it again. . .
Is one of my favorite holidays.

I hope my little bit of decorating does not 
distract from the reason for this holiday.
As we celebrate the
Savior's Jesus Christ's Atonement and Resurrection.

Through my decorating I want to share 

And Gratitude for the many blessings
I receive through His Grave and Love.
Jesus Christ can and will do it for everyone. . .

Along with decorating for Easter I add my touch of
bright  colorful to my home.
It is 
The earth is awakening.
She is displaying her beauties 
From the Blue Sky to the Colorful  Earth.
You can see it everywhere.

Even though it is a very Spiritual and Religious time for me.
I still enjoy the whimsical side of 

I like to scatter color and sunshine wherever I go. .
A few colored eggs here and some cute little bunnies there.

Easter is on it's way!

I hope you find the colorful and the happy of
this beautiful time of rebirth and renewal

Life Is About Change

Well hello my friends.
 I hope you are enjoying a 
delightful day.
The two day
General Conference for
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints
ended yesterday. So today I feel a 
little bit of a let-down.
I love General Conference.
It is so uplifting, so spiritual
it is as though
Mind and Spirit join as one, and 
the Heavens open, and
Light, Knowledge, and Truth
are abundantly given to all who will listen
and Believe.
Of course I am still dancing on Cloud 9
with the announcement that a new
Temple will be built in 
Tooele Valley.
What a wonderful blessing.
Prayers have been answered.
We don't know the exact location yet,
but we will know soon.
A new Temple in my precious valley
will bring about change.
And I know the changes will be good.
Wherever a Temple of The Church of
Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is built
It blesses everything. . . People are blessed
The land and the communities are
blessed. They will prosper.
Satan will gradually lose his power of
destruction. . . Because hearts will soften 
and turn to God,
 There will
be a stronger feeling to do good, to be less
judgmental. to help others. 
Children will obey righteous parents, and parents
will love their children and place their family 
as a top priority in their life.

My little Valley will 
And I will change.
Not because I am compelled to
But because I want to.
More Faith
More desire to do good
More attention to what matters most to me,
More devotion to my Savior Jesus Christ.
More Gratitude
More joy for my life.
Many more changes will happen.

Life is about change
Nothing ever stays the same.

Just as I look forward to Spring, 
I look forward to the changes
the Lord has for me.

Theses are the leaders that will 
And Testify of Jesus Christ

By the Gift of the Holy Ghost I will
know that what they say is true.

We are all sons and daughters of a loving
caring Heavenly Father.
No matter where we are, 
no matter what we have done,
He desires ALL His Children to
 Come To Him.

Through His Son Jesus Christ 
All blessings can and will be provided
as we turn our hearts and our minds
to Him we will see miracles in our lives.
Light and Truth will shine brightly
We will have His countenance in our eyes.
I invite you to "come listen to a Prophets voice"

Hello April

I am so happy to see
My March was horrible!
I did not do a single post in March.
Sickness, depression, snowstorm after snowstorm!
Made a very miserable month for me.
But I am looking forward to April.
Spring, and Easter always makes me 
feel much better.
I look forward to each new day.
I have been going through past posts
about April Easter and Spring.
I like the crisp white of this vignette.
It reminds me of the newness of
The Resurrection!
A Spring Bouquet always brings me
Ah, my little lamb.
It isn't Easter without my Little Lamb.
A few more pictures of my
April, Easter Past.
Now it is time to do a little change 
Celebrate April and Spring 2019
Along with a touch of Easter.

Be sure to check in with more decorating
and chatting about what
is going on in my life.

I look forward to your visits.
