What a beautiful Sunday we had yesterday. In a chapel in Lindon, Utah, not far from Chelsea and Lane's home, we gathered to participate in the naming and blessing of little Ellie. All of our children were there along with some very good friends. It was a very happy occasion. Hard to imagine that just a few short years ago, it seemed as if the sun would never shine again. Tragedy and trial had brought heavy burdens and grief. As we sang the opening song...."I know that my Redeemer lives", I could not help but weep. He is my "kind, wise, heavenly friend" who has lifted my burdens and at times carried me as well. How blessed and enriched our lives have become. This is now Easter Week, when all of Christendom celebrates the the resurrection. I add my voice to the angelic message heard first at the empty tomb...."He is not hear...He is Risen."
