Random Thoughts by Suzanne

My brain is full right now. I have so many thoughts running through my head, I have a 30 second delay in falling asleep when my head hits my pillow. Perhaps writing them down will ease my drowsiness.

#1. Easter is HERE!! My favorite holiday and time of the year! Hooray! It feels even better than Christmas! Wahoo!

#2. I find it ironic that the meaning of my name is Lily. Hence the Lily is usually the symbol of Easter.

The Easter Lily. For many, the beautiful trumpet-shaped white flowers symbolize purity, virtue, innocence, hope and life—the spiritual essence of Easter.

Yeah, I don't think it's a coincidence either!

#3. High School Musical 2 has put me in the mood for summer.
Shae rented this from the library and has watched it 2,309,323 times. I don't mind, I am ready for summer!
#4. Reading the Book of Mormon in 30 days.

I did this last year and I loved it! April is just the best month for me to do this. I do read the BOM all through out the year, but I love taking the month of April and reading it like a book so the stories all fit together. That's 18 pages a day. Piece of cake. I have also decided to start a blog journal about what I read for the day and jot down any spiritual moments through out my day. I do this in my journal, but writing takes longer than typing. Plus, I can add pictures to my blog scripture journal. We will see how that plays out.

#5. Manti Temple

I am literally counting down the days until we get to visit the Manti Temple again! One of my favorites and I have been told to visit the cafeteria for dinner. Oh, how I long to go to the Manti Temple!

#6. Those of you that know me, know that I have a tradition of having a Christ Centered Easter. I have now began the preparations for my week. This year, a lot of my nieces and nephews are now 12+ so it will be so much fun to do the activities as though I am doing them with the youth that I get to serve with. I am so excited about some of my plans.

#6. Ahhhhhhhhhh!!! I need a vacay!

#7. Mary of Magdalene.
She is in my thoughts ALL the TIME!

Have a lovely weekend! I know I will! I am going to hear Sheri Dew! Wahoo!

I know you LOVE this holiday.. so I am very excited for you too!

Wow.. the BOM in 30 days would be quite something. Good luck with that.

I might do the BoM in 30 days with you too. What a great challenge! I don't think I have done that since my mission.

I would love to chat with you about what you do the week of Easter. You always have fantastic ideas and I'd love to pick your brain.

Beautiful post Suzanne.

I can't wait to hear about all your special plans for Easter. It seems like I remember last year you went to a cabin and I see that in Ann's comment. That will be fun.

I am impressed and motivated - What a great idea to take April to read the Book of Mormon - Fabulous!!
