All Is Well, All Is Well

Today is Pioneer Day, and I am really happy to share this video with you. I think you'll find it as stirring as I do. Please be sure to click off my red playlist in the right sidebar, because the music is a big part of the experience. When you have finished watching, I hope you'll take a moment to go check out my post at Mormon Women. I think you might enjoy the poem there. =)

Oh thank you Sue. I hope you don't mind, but I think I will put this on my blog. What a reminder to us not to take the gospel for granted.

Stirring and heartbreaking all at the same time. What admiration I have for the courage and fortitude of our ancestors! Thank you for reminding me of Pioneer Day. It was almost a Saturday like any other.

ps - Safe travels today on your way south. I keep hoping you'll have a small window of time for a quick hello. I would so enjoy meeting you.

Happy Pioneer Day!
The pioneers and all they went through are such an incredible inspiration to any of us who are going through trials (all of us!).
This was excellent!

Have fun at your reunion Sue :-D

I am on vacation and in the room with two other couples. They are watching TV and I can't listen just yet. But I will come back tomorrow because we are going home. I wanted to tell you that I am glad to have found you and thanks for visiting my blog.

This is so beautiful, Sue. Did I mention to you that I watched a program on PBS television about the Mormon Pioneer trail recently? It was an excellent program. You have so much to be proud of in your ancestors.

We were just there for trek and that captures it better than I ever could have.
