I realize I've gotten behind in deluging all of you with more flowers. Soooo, if you are not a fan, you need only to close the blog. That is the nice thing about the Internet. No one is forced to read or see anything the sender is fanatic about and you could care less. You don't even have to pretend to be interested as in a face-to-face conversation. I get to indulge in the delights and details of my life and selfishly pretend it means something to someone else. Ha, ha.
Now that I have let everyone off the hook for following my blog, just know that I do find your lives extremely interesting, so do not stop posting your stuff. I love it!
He's "poorly." Yesterday, Elder Blain and I visited the children in Primary to talk in first person, as if we'd been there, relating stories from the scriptures demonstrating Christ has power to overcome death. We had to adjust our language so the children understood clearly. For instance, I was talking about Lazarus and how he'd gotten sick before he died. Martha and Mary were worried and sent a man to tell Jesus that Lazarus was poorly. No one here says that someone is ill or sick. No matter the seriousness of an illness or its nature it is, "__name_______ is poorly." It isn't doing poorly--just poorly. All of the people we talked about were poorly and they died, but Christ brought them back to life. I thought what a special knowledge to gain at such a young age--to know we all live after death. It is a comfort for children and adults to know that if we get poorly and die, there is hope.
The biggest problem I have getting good flower pictures is the wind--always blowing here. Often the shots are blurred, so patience is a virtue and they get caught when the wind takes a breath to blow again. Aha!
