Yesterday for Mother’s Day weekend we went to Newport Beach. Corona Del Mar beach was where we enjoyed the sand, sun, and splashing waves. We had dinner at Café Rio and then visited the LDS temple. This was a spontaneous trip so I didn’t look up the temple pictures before-hand. I was surprised to see that the temple isn’t a gleaming white. It is enchanting and very beautiful! Today we enjoyed church and made the sabbath a relaxing one.
In no particular order
If and when I have more time pictures will be added. We were blessed to have my mom come out and share in Eden’s party. There were about 10 kids plus their parents here. Other than the ranch dog trying to eat the kids food, it was a good experience. The main attraction was the pony rides. The other fun things were: it had a little playground area with swings, pot belly pigs, goats. The ambience was quiet and calm. We had a horse piñata, homemade miniature barns to play with, painted sun catchers, and of course food was eaten.
Grace within someone, like wine within a bottle, gets better with age. Grace doesn’t follow the letter-of-the law or rather, it is bound by no rules. It lives in the moment. It acts in spontaneity and can improvise when life throws curve balls.
