"Life is full of beauty.  Notice it.  Notice the bumble bee, the small child and the smiling faces.  Smell the rain and feel the wind.  Live your life to the fullest potential, and fight for your dreams."

Good Tuesday morning!!  Ahhh......yesterday was my first day back to work in almost a couple of weeks.  I missed the kids and staff and it was great to see everyone.  The kids were very excited to tell me all about their Easter and what the Easter Bunny brought them and all about their egg hunts.  Sounds like a great time was had by all. 

I didn't get a chance to talk to you about the American Idol elimination on Thursday night.  I didn't even know who they kicked off until I returned on Sunday.  I wasn't disappointed at all with Stefano leaving.  But now it is down to the last 6 and it is going to be hard to see them start going.  They are all such good singers in such different catagories.  I really like 3 of them and wish all 3 could win.  I have a strong feeling who is going to win.  We shall see.

Here are some more pictures of our trip to the beach.  This one is of Jenna, Tyler and Ryan walking along the beach.

I was so thankful for each and every moment on this trip.  I appreciate all the little things and try not to take anything for granted.  Being by the ocean and looking out at the water brings such peace to me and I am in awe of the beauty and power of it.  The sunsets were so beautiful.  God sure does paint a beautiful picture everyday no matter where we are or live. 

I would like to wish a very "Happy Birthday" to my brother-in-law Mark today!  Hope you have a relaxing great day Mark!

Prayer requests: For a young brave man named Josh who was serving in our military in Afghanistan and last week he lost both of his legs and some fingers in an explosion.  Pray for his strength and healing both physically and emotionally.  Pray for his family too.  Thank you so much.

Colossians 2 verses 6 - 7:  And now just as you trusted Christ to save you, trust him, too, for each day's problems; live in vital union with him.  Let your roots grow down into him and draw up nourishment from him.  See that you go on growing in the Lord, and become strong and vigorous in the truth you were taught.  Let your lives overflow with joy and thanksgiving for all he has done.

Read the bible in a year:  Today.....2 Kings 15 - 17.  Wednesday.....2 Kings 18 - 19.

Have a terrific day everyone!!  Today is another gift from God and He is so Good!!

Question: Have you ever found a sand dollar before on the beach?  I have, but on this trip I didn't.  Everyone knew I was looking for one and two people found one for me.  Pretty cool!

Hey Les! Your pictures are beautiful. You have a wonderful family. I have found many sand dollars and all sorts of beautiful shells. It is my favorite thing to do at the beach.
