Our Trials

"A pebble held close to the eye appears to be a gigantic obstacle. Cast on the ground, it is seen in perspective. Likewise, problems or trials in our lives need to be viewed in the perspective of scriptural doctrine. Otherwise they can easily overtake our vision, absorb our energy, and deprive us of the joy and beauty the Lord intends us to receive here on earth."

--Richard G. Scott, "Finding Joy in Life", Ensign May 1996

Chloe's St. Patrick's Day Program

On Tuesday night, Chloe's second grade class had their St. Patrick's Day program at the PTO. She goes to Glenwood School, a beautiful elementary school, nestled in the rolling countryside of North Carolina. I love the location and the view from the school. With an old country store across the street and farms and nice homes along the roads, you could not ask for a pretty place for a school. We are blessed to have this area of the country to live in. I made a scrapbook page for her with the pictures we took at the program.
