"Each of us is under a divinely spoken obligation to reach out with pardon and mercy and to forgive one another. There is a great need for this Christlike attribute in our families, in our marriages, in our wards and stakes, in our communities, and in our nations.

We will receive the joy of forgiveness in our own lives when we are willing to extend that joy freely to others. Lip service is not enough. We need to purge our hearts and minds of feelings and thoughts of bitterness and let the light and the love of Christ enter in. As a result, the Spirit of the Lord will fill our souls with the joy accompanying divine peace of conscience."

--Elder Dieter F. Uchtdorf, "
Point of Safe Return"

Hope you all had a wonderful Easter!

Nathan finding an egg with help from Jason and Leslie

Little Grant on the move - he found out there was money in those eggs at Great Grandma and Grandpa's house...he had his pockets filled with coins by the time all was said and done.

My little Sean...growing up....still enjoying the egg hunt

Nathan and my mom

my other "little" boy...no longer interested in the egg hunt - but content with a soda and with giving out hints to the little ones.

The little bunnies hard at work coloring Easter Eggs on Saturday afternoon!

The annual Humpty Dumpty Egg...don't know who started the tradition on that one!
