"Joy" Blessed are ye because of your faith. And now behold, my joy is full. 3 Nephi 17:20

"This is one of my favorite moments in the Book of Mormon. After stating this, Jesus simply spends some time blessing and interacting with the children, while angels descend out of heaven. In this piece, I wanted to depict our Savior in that moment of "full joy". I see Him smiling and laughing spontaneously, filled with so much love for those young people, to the point of weeping for joy (as it mentions in the record He did). If its human nature to manifest feelings of joy and love in that way... then I have to believe that would especially be the case for the One who is the embodiment of every good and righteous instinct of human nature."~Dave Bowman~
Here is a new artist. I love his pictures. He really seems to capture the kindness and love that the Savior has for all of us.

My New Toy

I got a new toy that I really love. I got a lamination machine. I have always wanted one. i got it from Walmart for like $25. The laminating pouches I found for a great deal at Sams club $6.42 for 50. Later, I found out its a way better deal to get the machine at Sams, its the same price, but you get 20 pouches with it. I laminated tons of stuff already. I found some artwork from the kids I wanted to keep so i laminated them too. Its so fast and easy to use! Its great for the FHE lesson group too. Now I will start to laminate my handouts for Young Womens too!! Oh geez, I am starting to sound like a commercial. anyway I love it!!! Come and borrow it anytime, you'll love it too!!

In Memory.......Oscar

Its so sad to lose a pet that you love. It has been so sad and depressing around here without Oscar. I never realized how much I did like him until he was gone. I cant help but feel so responsible for his death. I wish I would have taken care of him better. Madison has been heart broken over Oscar. I know that time will heal all things and life does go on. For now, We love and miss you Oscar.

My latest Addiction!

ok, so I have an addiction problem. I love facebook. I get on it all the time. I have 2 favorite games that I play, and might I add they were both introduced to me by my friend Sherri. Anyway the first is Bejeweled. That game drives me crazy!! First, the voice of the guy who starts the game is a little creepy, but how I get so happy when it or he says good or excellent. Second, the game is fixed or something, I play it all the time and usually my score is around 20,000 but occasionally the score will grow clear up to 90,000. I have no idea how it gets that high. The times in the game that I think I am doing good is when I get a low score. I just don't understand it, but I love it!!
The next game I am addicted to is Farm Town. I love this game. I dream about this game in my sleep and even have woken up early so I can harvest my crops. It is really fun to have your own little farm and to plant crops and have animals. You have to harvest your crops everyday so you can earn money and plant more crops or buy things for your farm. I am saving up to buy a barn. You get more money if you hire people to harvest your crops. Its fun to talk to people from all over the world who are into the game as much or even way more as you. Try these games out they are so much fun!! Warning ........You may become addicted!!!!
