It just might take more than the three hours we have while our friends watch the kids this afternoon.
It might take the whole week....
I rarely share my feelings about the Savior to the public audience, but I felt like it changed my life to learn more about him during this Easter season. I don't understand how he took upon Him my sins and those of all mankind. It is truly miraculous and He showed the greatest love of any being who has lived. I am sure that just as He gave His life and died, He rose from the grave and conquered death for us all as well. He was born in a stable, lived a humble, service-oriented life, and did for us what we could not do for ourselves.
So, with all of the egg-hunting, candy-eating and ham-baking this weekend (which I will be doing as well), I hope a little reflection and introspection is also a part.
Happy Easter to each of you!
Okay, so I just have to mention some things I don't like and never have:
Overall, I'm thankful for a body that functions well, serves my needs and is amazingly complex.
I loved this quote from Russell M. Nelson about our heart:
"The heart has four delicate valves that control the direction of blood flow. They open and close more than 100,000 times a day- 36 million times a year. Unless altered by disease, they are able to withstand this stress almost indefinitely. No man-made material can be flexed so frequently and so long without breaking. Each day, the adult heart pumps enough fluid to fill a 2,000-gallon tank. At the crest of the heart is a source of electricity that transmits energy down special lines, causing myriads of muscle fibers to work together."
Amazing, miraculous, divine: our beautiful bodies!
So, anyways, here are some of my random thoughts on food lately:
Here is Finn testing out the new rocker. I give it a 8 for looks, 6 for comfort (it's a little on the hard side for something upholstered) and 9 for rockability. Overall, I'm glad we got it.
