Onward to PA. Steve bought Jocelyn and me a lovely orchid corsage to wear on Sunday.
This day was also Robert's 64th birthday.
The Christensen kids have spent the last 2 weeks learning the 13 Articles of Faith with the help of music/rhythm. For FHE, Jocelyn had planned this elaborate Final Exam...and Guy and Scarlett passed off all 13. Autumn is very close to knowing them all as well, must mostly she can do it with the music ringing in her head. Robert had found these pieces of rocks from work.
But the valuable things, the worthwhile things are these children who so earnestly seek after good things, guided by their parents.
A few weeks ago, Robert came in to tell me that there was a bird's nest in the holly bush right outside our front window...and sure enough there was. Not just a nest but also a nest with 4 blue eggs. I have carefully watched this and the mommy bird (and the daddy bird as well, I think) and when I could I snuck out to grab a picture (I think if you click on the picture you will get an enlarged one and be better able to see the babies).
All around us, gentle readers, are things which remind us of the Savior and His counsels to us. It's not hard to see if we will look and remember.
