And it came to pass...

As part of a family home evening celebrating their finishing 1st Nephi, 
the H's invited me over for a little archery competition... 

and I mean... little... lol..  

 To finish off the evening we had bow and arrow pretzels for refreshments...

Your creativity truly amazes me Allisha... :-)
Thanks for letting me join in the fun. :-)

Weekly Media - Don't Laugh At Me

We observed Red Ribbon Week in our school this week. At the end of the week we had an assembly to encourage students to not bully one another.
 This video was shared as part of the presentation. I thought I'd share it here as a reminder to all of us that we are all different and unique. May we all be a gift to those need our support. 
 "In God's eyes we're all the same...Someday we'll all have perfect wings..."


Life Through My Lens - The pumpkin patch...

Some very kind and good friends invited me to join their family on a little excursion to a local pumpkin patch a couple of weeks ago. It was a pretty fun evening and definitely reminded me that fall is here.

Thanks, my dear friends, for inviting me...


I sent for this frame months ago
in anticipation of framing a beautiful photo I had won
in a friend's photography contest...

This is the way it arrived...

Perhaps I should have had an inkling then
that life would throw a curve...

The brutality of mortality got in the way... 

Now the frame remains ...



There are days
I feel

Life Through My Lens - Morning has broken...

Through the blackest night, morning gently tiptoes, feeling its way to dawn.  ~ Robert Brault

Slow buds the pink dawn like a rose
From out night's gray and cloudy sheath;
Softly and still it grows and grows,
Petal by petal, leaf by leaf.

Come listen...

This weekend I sought a renewal I desperately needed after a difficult few months. The words spoken and music shared helped begin to refill my spiritual reservoir. 

Weary Not

If the way be full of trial, weary not;
If it's one of sore denial weary not;
If it now be one of weeping,
There will come a joyous greeting,
When the harvest we are reaping, weary not


Do not weary by the way
Whatever be thy lot
There awaits a brighter day
To all, to all who weary, weary not

If the way be one of sorrow, weary not;
Happier will be the morrow, weary not;
Here we suffer tribulation,
Here we must endure temptation,
But there'll come a great salvation, weary not;

If misfortunes overtake us, weary not;
Jesus will never forsake us, weary not;
He will leave us never, never,
From His love there's naught can sever,
Glory to the Lamb forever, weary not

(“If the Way be Full of Trial, Weary Not,” Deseret Sunday School Songs (1909), no. 158)
