Ahh...it seems like spring is finally here. It never feels quite like spring until Easter arrives. And with it being Easter weekend, I feel very comfortable and at peace.

“In our hour of deepest sorrow, we can receive profound peace from the words of the angel that first Easter morning: ‘He is not here: for he is risen.’”

With each passing year,I grow to have a deeper understanding of Christ and His life. His mortal ministry, and the Atonement. I can never express how grateful I am for Him, because my heart would either burst, or I would run out of words to say. But, I am so thankful for the Easter season. It is a wonderful reminder of hope, faith, and love.

This new semester has started off quite challenging for us. Or maybe just me--because Denver can adjust to anything in a heartbeat it seems. Our grant money didn't arrive when it was supposed to--so we really didn't have money to buy groceries or anything. And not having anything to eat really takes a toll on you! Especially when you work fast food, and everyone around you is eating. :) Anyway, we got that problem resolved, and we went grocery shopping last night. I will never again take for granted a fully stocked fridge, or shelves. I think this was a test for me--to see how I would handle difficult situations. Like I haven't had enough of those already :) Either way, I'm glad I am able to eat and have concentration for school.

Our new apartment is shaping up! Pictures will be coming soon--I promise. We FINALLY got a shower curtain and a trashcan today. Crazy how the little things are so important to us, and how we think we can't survive without them. So showers will regain in this household. Taking baths took too long! :)

Well for this Saturday I will do some more homework, and hopefully finish my new favorite book series, "The Hunger Games". I'm currently on the last book, and can't wait to see what happens next! If you like to read, I'd recommend these.
