December Blogging Effort

Francie and I are sitting in my living room and I am learning how to blog. I want to stay in touch with all of you and this seems to be the popular way right now! Jill will help me find your addresses so you can be invited to read my blog occasionally. I want to wish each of you a Merry Christmas and a joyous holiday season. Her is a picture of me with my children with whom I will be celebrating the wonder and gift of our Savior's birth. How grateful we are to be family for now and for eternity. How I love my children and their families. Let me share why I call my blog "Stones and Pebbles".
Stones and Pebbles
A man was out walking in the desert when a voice said to him,"Pick up some pebbles and put them in your pocket, and tomorrow you will be both sorry and glad." The man obeyed. He stooped down and picked up a handful of pebbles and put them in his pocket. The next morning he reached into his pocket and found diamonds and rubies and emeralds. And he was both glad and sorry. Glad that he had taken some - sorry that he hadn't taken more.
