Come, Come, Ye Saints

Here is Marcus' favorite Hymn. He would repeat these words to me as he neared the end of his life. This is the version he just loved. He took so much strength from his Ancestors, the Pioneers.

Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing

I have signed up for LDS Nuggets. They are weekly spiritual thoughts sent to my email. They are all sponsored, and have an advertisement at the end. I usually never read the adds.
Today marks the day of the 5th month anniversary of Marcus' death, and the advertisement today, with the LDS Nuggets, was a new CD from Mormon Tabernacle Choir called "Come thou Fount of Every Blessing"!!! with a clip from YouTube with it. For those who don't know, this is the first song Marcus downloaded to his ipod when he got it and this version was sung at his funeral. He LOVED this song and especially this arrangement. He used to play it when he was feeling down. He truly is close by. Ohhhh how I miss that boy!

My Cub Scout.

My cub scout, Noah, just had his Blue and Gold Banquet. He has grown up so much, I can't believe he will be 10 in April!! He will then become a Weblo, the last year in the Cub Scouts, then he will advance into the Boy Scouts at age 11!!! WOW! Where does the time go!
Here is Noah's Pack with their leaders. These kids are the Wolves, Bears (Noah is a Bear) and Weblos. They are a great bunch of boys and their leaders are wonderful as well. Thanks to them for their time and dedication to our boys.
