Easter Blessings to You and Yours! I wanted to take a moment wish everyone a very Happy, Blessed Easter! May you and yours be filled with Christ’s blessings this Easter season.   As with spring, Easter is a time of renewal – renewal of  our spirits.

Meaning of Life from a Third Grader

Rocking ChairFinding the meaning of life – It’s what we all do from birth to death. We ask questions. We pose “what ifs” throughout our lives. Yet when we are at the end of lives, what will we regret the most? Well, the answer comes from a third grader of all people! Wise words that we should all consider, given the time we have left on this earth to find the meaning of life – the life meant for each and every one of us. This video is both inspirational and motivational. I hope that you enjoy it as much as my husband and I did. My thanks to my friend Sam Kneller for sharing it with me.
