Weekend with Family

Being with my siblings brings so much joy.  We were all together in the Provo City Center Temple, as we did sealings.

Over and over I kept thinking of dad and mom.  I give such great thanks to them for the wonderful home life we had growing up.

I am forever grateful for their amazing goodness and love.

The old man hobbled out of the senior center....

The fat lady waddled down the aisle...

And SHE was in a wheelchair.

It was such A MOMENT for me, to think that even though, we sometimes, shuffle, waddle, hobble, move slowly, we at least


And, I am so grateful for that movement ability!.

I awoke in the night to the glorious sound of RAIN.

Soft, light, but RAIN.

And, I am so grateful.

In a desert, rain is needed so very badly.


And, I'll continue to give thanks.

Music On the Green

It was a complete accident that we happened to hear the music.

The Dixie State Orchestra was playing on the green by the library.

We had gone to hear a lecture at the tabernacle, but it was canceled, when we heard the music coming from close by.

Loving orchestras and bands, I insisted on walking over to see what was happening.

And, there it was.  WONDERFUL MUSIC.

SO, we stayed and listened.

Over and over, I kept thinking about my dad, who created Sunday night community concerts at Ross Park in Pocatello, Idaho.

I loved listening to the music on those gorgeous summer evenings.

And, that is just the way it was last night;

Perfect weather, good friends, and fantastic Music.

Oh, it was JOYFUL>

And, I am thankful.

Sunshiney Days

I love the sunshine here in St George.

Most days are so sunny, cherry, bright, and beautiful.

I am so very grateful for that kind of weather.

For the Savior

Every week I take the Sacrament....

And, I  promise to


I fall far short of that.

But, I am so very grateful for his Atoning Sacrifice.

What he did for me, a sinner, an ingrate at times, a whiner, a sluggard in doing HIS work......

I know the Church is true.

I know HE is my Savior.

OH, it is wonderful.

And, I am grateful.
