And thus we see the great call of diligence of men to labor in the vineyards of the Lord; and thus we see the great reason of sorrow, and also of rejoicing--sorrow because of death and destruction among men, and joy because of the light of Christ unto life. Alma 28:14
|Daffodils have brought sunshine to the Preston Temple grounds!|
|The living among the dead--more daffodils in a cemetery near our home.|
Let there be more light . . .
Now that daylight savings time has begun in the United States, there is more light in the evening in that part of the world. England will spring the clocks forward this Sunday and we will also seemingly have our days extended with light. Since days have been shorter here due to our latitude, we look forward to more light because more people are out and we can work longer in the evening finding them. Daylight Savings Time is a way of giving light where we need it most during the months we love to be outdoors.
. . . and lambs!
and flowers . . .

|Elder Blain is looking short next to these two elders. This is the kitchen where we do a lot of our work.|
|Lots of sunshine in Darwen for several weeks now!|
|The angle on these roofs in Darwen show how steep the hill is as we look towards where we live. India Tower is the main landmark here.|
|The ivy is becoming more vividly alive with spring.|
|You can see our apartment really well in this picture. The red roof is sticking up just right of the steel tower that is up by the tree line.|
|We went by this last barn on the way to the top of the highest hill overlooking Darwen.|
|The Darwen Tower marker at the trail head. We placed a Book of Mormon with a young woman who was petting her cat while sitting on a fence up here.|
