Snow-Christmas Eve Day

Christmas Eve Day was beautiful with the snowfall that gave us a white Christmas. While it was coming down, I drove into the Busch Wildlife Area, one of my favorite places, just 10 minutes from our house. It was serenely magnificent. This corn field stubble made for an interesting foreground for the falling snow.

Christmas image

We are grateful for all those who remember us with a Christmas Card. I thought that this image of a square of stamps captures the traditional picture of Christmas.

Rear view mirror

Our six year old granddaughter understands the concept of past, present and future. She told us that "today will be yesterday tomorrow." We are always looking back to see where we have been, sometimes with some pleasure and sometimes with some regret. However, if we are continually looking in the rear view mirror, we are likely to have a crash in our future. Eyes on the road ahead with a determination to make today and tomorrow the best it can be. Then, we will know tomorrow that yesterday was a successful springboard to the future.

Ready for Christmas

Driving to work this week, I listened to Susan Boyle sing Christmas Carols. I was reminded of last year's Christmas in Nauvoo. Will we have a white Christmas this year? If not, this and other pictures will remind me of the beauties of the Season and its center piece, Jesus born in Bethlehem.

Favorite Alaska Picture

I said I would repost my favorite Alaska picture for someone who just returned from an adventure to that beautiful state. The picture was the culmination of 4 or 5 hours watching the bears at lake in the Alaskan back country.

Thanksgiving, just the beginning

Thanksgiving is a time to contemplate and express gratitude for family, blessings, beliefs and opportunities. Many have been protected during the recession; many have not. The holiday season is a general period for festive feelings and actions. Yet, many feel depressed and in dispair. May we be mindful of these folks as our holiday season unwinds. Nothing is more important than to be aware of, show watch care to and assist those with "feeble knees" and with "hands that hang down." Lifting spirits of another is our covenant duty, a privilege and, at the same time, a blessing to our brothers and sisters on this earth. Join me in making a difference during this time of year.
