conference weekend


We kicked off spring break with a hike to the top of Stone Mountain and a weekend of listening to 8+ hours of poetry, also known as General Conference.

From the top of Stone Mountain, you’d hardly believe you’re were looking out over millions of people, buildings and cars. All you can see are a few skyscrapers in the distance and a lush blanket of green, sprawling outward forever.

We skipped spring around here. Went straight to jungle. It’s gorgeous.

As are the words of Jeffrey R. Holland:

“Surely, the thing God enjoys most about being God is the thrill of being merciful, especially to those who do not expect and feel they don’t deserve it.”

Photo: These fellas hang out in the creek outside our apartment when it gets hot. Yesterday alone I visited them no less than three times. There were kids with me — the Hales, a cute family from church — but even if they hadn’t been, I would have gone to say hello. For whatever reason, turtles give me an emotional boost. Turtles. Who knew?
