We love to Sing, Sing, Sing!

The Women's Choir at BYU-Idaho, of which Mary is a member, had the opportunity to sing at the Devotional this week!  Here's Mary on the top row, second from the left.  Beautifully done, Mary!
 And Libby got to sing with the Honor Choir this week!  She sang in the Treble Choir, and they sang some beautiful numbers.  Way to go Libby!

Josh had his first full week of working full time on the assembly line.  He has been listening to an audible book about Abraham Lincoln called A. Lincoln: A Biography, Rythmatist, Emperor's Soul and something else.  He has really been enjoying his time with the Middletones and the Mad Boys.  They came again to our house for breakfast and it was decided around the table that this would be a weekly tradition for the next forty years for all the Mad Boys.  Good!

Joseph had his resting heart rate measured this week and it was 44!  They quizzed him on his physical activity.  Haha!  That's really something.

I have to add this picture to the blog of Jesse!  Her caption said she was missin' kissin'.  Classic!
Becca and Nic came over on Thursday for dinner.  It was so fun to have them here!

Bruce and I had our first rehearsal for the Easter performance of Messiah.  It was great!  A college professor is the conductor, and the quality of his work is so apparent.  Wow - what an opportunity to learn from him!  And to sing about the Savior.  Charles Johnson, I believe that is his name, was the one that actually wrote the lyrics for Messiah, and I am amazed at the depth and breadth of understanding that he had of the Savior's different roles and mission.  it is truly an inspired work!

I'm so grateful for the merits and mercy and grace of the Holy Messiah!  I wish every day to come unto Him and be a better disciple, and I am so grateful for the opportunity I have to do that.
