Christmas Cheer

I love this season of the year. It’s fun to see the kids all excited and the lights on the houses in the neighborhood at night. It’s my favorite thing to wait in an hour long line at the post office to buy stamps for my Christmas cards (just kidding–that’s one thing I could do without), and seeing all the Christmas decorations up in the house. So pretty!

But one of my favorite things is finding amazing songs celebrating Christ’s birth and life. These are some of my favorites I’ve found this year. I hope you’ll enjoy them too.

I love her comments at the end about searching for the beauty around us; and not passing it by. Continue reading

Easter Joy–Spring after Winter

April in Utah 005Just a quick post to wish you all a wonderful Easter today!  Spring is truly here…even in good old Idaho!  It makes me happy to see the blossoms coming out, my grass turning green, and daffodils, tulips and irises beginning to form.

Springs brings new life after the dead of winter.  It makes me know that even through the dark, cold winters of our life when everything can go wrong and things can seem so bleak, because of our Savior, Jesus Christ, the hope of spring is sure to come.  New life, new growth comes only after the trials and hardships we go through in this life.  Faith in our Savior helps endure them easier.

Here’s an Easter video that’s about 7-1/2 minutes long.  I loved it!  Jesus is the reason for this season.  He is the Hope of life.  Have a great Easter.
