Easter in AZ, AMI, Visit from the Adamzes; Mel graduated, Bismarck is flooding; The sun also rises...
This is why blogging more often is important: catchup is not effective. So I will just give you some highlights of the past couple of months, and hope this shares "the smallest part of what I feel..."
Emphasis on feel, not what I have to say. I'll let the images do the talking. And I can't pretend I achieved any balance, so know that there are lots of people and moments I had to leave out. Sigh. This is why blogging more often is important...
Mesa Temple Easter Pageant, entire cast
I've never seen a Hummingbird at rest. I had to include it...
Because the authorities are asking people not to drive around looking and taking pictures, mine are from the bridges as I drive, and not very good. But you can see the mess in detail by going to www.ndfloods.com, or on Facebook at North Dakota Flood Info Center. There are lots of pictures and information from the local media. Great coverage of a sad circumstance. I would go into more detail here, but it's a lengthy telling. Suffice it to say, we will have a destructively high river, more than four feet above flood stage, all summer. We're grateful to be high and dry. And praying for people up and down the river, and all over the country. And all over the world.
The sun will rise, and troubles will ease. But it may be a very long time. This is a time for faith.

This quick word post is just to reassure anyone who still bothers to check in, that I will, I really will, post this week. That snow storm picture has to go!! I won't bore you with detailed excuses, but my life really hasn't been my own for the past two months; then, when life began to return to normal, sandbagging Bismarck began. So I really do have lots to share - but I'll probably seriously reduce the volume because, well, I'm lazy. Talk to you soon. With pictures.
