NOEL

So I was all snuggled in my bed, but couldn't fall asleep, so I did this instead. The Mormon Tabernacle Choir has sung this song many times, but for some reason this holiday season it is singing to my soul. I am so grateful for the birth and life of the Savior. He lives. The Atonement is real.  I had the opportunity to not only attend but sing at a baptism on Saturday.  It was a small gathering, but that didn't matter, what mattered was the commitment that was taking place in Erica Marquez's life.  Her friend (both share some mental incompacities) gave the opening prayer and what she said was beautiful, "I am grateful to be blessed to see the Atonement today." The gospel truly is so beautiful and wonderfully simple. Do I take the time each day to see the Atonement blessing my life.  I am so grateful for the Christmas Season, to remind me about that fact. What a glorious Father in Heaven we have. God's plan of happiness is real. If you would like to know more about his plan or Erica's commitment check out my profile on mormon.org by clicking here .

I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas!

Chairs

I finally finished recovering my kitchen chairs tonight. I think they turned out great. They definitely aren't professional, but they look SO different. I love them!
