A few of the things  I find each week that pique my interest, bring me joy, inspire me to learn, create, do, become . . . Maybe they will do the same for you!

Of course, in the Christian Calendar, today is a special day. Good Friday. On this day we reflect on all that Christ did for us both in the Garden of Gethsemane and on the cross.  I love the Savior with all of my heart. I hate that He had to do what He had to do for us, but I am eternally grateful that He did it.  

In The English Kitchen today  . . .  Fluffy Buttermilk Biscuits. An old recipe from my Big Blue Binder and oh so tasty good! 

Have a wonderful day.  Whatever you get up to stay safe, be blessed and don't forget!
