"Motherhood is not a burden to be borne, it is a privilege to be enjoyed. It is not a trial of endurance, it is a time of celebration." Winnie Dalley


Easter Week: Wednesday

There is no scriptural record of what the Savior did today.  I wonder if He might have gone somewhere to be alone and talk with His Father to gain strength and prepare as much as He could for the experiences of Gethsemane and Calvary coming tomorrow and the next day.  We are not sure what He did, but in our family we call today our wilderness day.  We spend time as a family strengthening eachother through our love for one another.  If we can, we go somewhere out in nature and feel the love of our Heavenly Father through His creations.
This morning the kids made a collage of pictures in nature that reminded them of Jesus' love.

Growing up, we always did a family talent show today.  I think it is kind of neat that we have a sort of "ponder day" right in the middle of the week.  There is so much to think about and be grateful for remembering all that the Savior was about to do for us.  I am so grateful that because of what He did this week, I can be with my family forever in His presence.
