Whenever I hear the song of a bird...

Whenever I hear the song of a bird,
or look at the blue, blue sky,
Whenever I feel the rain on my face
or the wind as it rushes by.
Whenever I touch a velvet rose,
or walk by our lilac tree,
I'm glad that I live in this beautiful world
Heavenly Father created for me.
One of my favorite primary songs. The beauty of spring always reminds me how very much my Heavenly Father loves me. I'm so grateful for all the beauty he surrounds me with each and every day.
Remember the flower bed I weeded last week? I was so anxious to see these babies bloom!

Here's how they looked just a few days later!

There's no sunshine today, so they're hiding their faces, but I still think they look lovely!
These are what say "hello" to me each day when I walk out my front door. I still need to weed here!
This flower bed also still needs weeding and de-leafing! But I love all the bright colors!
I hope you are all having a beautiful Sabbath. Tonight I get to hear my husband and daughter (cowgirl) sing. There is an amazing exhibit called "Reflections of Christ" that will be touring the country. Tonight is the last night here, and our ward choir is one of choirs that was invited to do a musical presentation for the exhibit. I can't wait, it's going to be such a wonderful evening!


Oh - p.s. Tomorrow will be my 100th post! I think I'll do a giveaway!

Your flowers are beautiful! I wish we could get spring time flowers like most of the country can right now. We are already moving into summer.

That's exciting about the Reflections exhibit. The photographer is from here and in the scene on Calvary with the 3 crosses our friend Sam is on the cross to the left of Christ. Isn't that cool. Right now Sam is on his mission in Australia.

I ♥ that primary song....and the flowers look beautiful!
I love the blooming flowers & love to see my little one be so interested & gentle with them....he is so careful not to hurt them...just smell them. Don't know if you guys ever watch the show "Little Bill" but on a show it talked about once you pick a bud off a plant it will die...he always remembers that and is so careful not hurt the plant!
