Wednesday....And...A Great Recipe!

My Wednesday began with bread.
Well, that was after breakfast was made....lunches were made and The Darlings put
on the bus. Then it was bread....rolls....6 dozen of them
Wednesay was "Miericoles Missional" at the JSA.
The first....or second this month...Wednesday of each month the Future Missionaries in the
Senior class are treated to a wonderful lunch at the Director's home. It is something new
that has been started this year and it is fantastic! After lunch, young men are treated to
encouraging words from a priesthood leader, and then more uplifting words from a
former mission president. Each month I can see in the eyes of the young men....more and more
resolve. They are "becoming" the colony missionaries that they are been raised to be.
My tears are too frequent these days....everything in our home is revolving around mission
papers at the moment. It is coming very fast!
Yesterday day The Farmer shared a tender experience from an conference talk given in April
"The Divine Call of a Missionary" by Elder Rasband.
In this talk he explains step by step just how a missionary is assigned to the mission he is called. And I wept.
Actually when I read it the first time...I cried like a Mom who is sending her Boy off
for two years...to who knows where. I cried again as The Farmer carefully explained this sacred
process to these great young men. I try really hard not to cry in front of The Boy....I want to
lend him all the strength I have right now....this is a sacry time of life.
But he is actually the one hugs me tight and tells me everything will be okay.
The missionary meetings are inspired! As a Mom, I am so grateful for attentative
Priesthood leaders who carefully hold these young men under their protective wings...
preparing them...to fly.

Very Tasty...No Fail Rolls
1/2 c. warm water
1/2 c. warm milk
1 egg, silghtly beaten
1/3 c. butter, softened
1/3 c. sugar
1 t. salt
3 3/4 c. flour
2 1/2 t. yeast
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Activate yeast in water, milk and sugar mixture. When yeast is good and bubbly add butter, beaten egg, flour and salt and mix. I put everything into
my Kitchen Aid mixer and let it go. Let it mix until a soft dough forms.
Next, divide dough into two equal parts. Roll each part into a circle, spread more butter onto
circle, cut into wedges and roll from the outside in forming a cresent. Let raise, and then
bake for 10-12 minutes.

The rolls were a hit at the missionary luncheon....that made me happy!

Bro. Cluff and his wife Mona, the Director of the JSA, Pres. Romney and his wife Silvia,
The former Mission President speaker....Rick Jones and his wife Lynnette (not pictured)
The Farmer (a.k.a. the Stake President) also in attendance were the seminary teachers.

And here they are! The 2011 Colony Missionaries.
23 out of the 25 were present yesterday.
They looked so handsome in their white shirts and ties!

On our way home....another stop at "The Farm" to once again check the trees....
and this is what we found....
The blooming has started. In another week, this whole area will have a hue of pink
over it, and for about another week or so, it will be fantastically beautiful!
We sure can use a little color around here....it is a bit drab and brown.

I've made those rolls before, and you are right, they are no fail!

i wish we had some spring color around these parts.

I make these very rolls all the time and am known for them throughout the southeast. Yummy. :)

Can we please come and take some family photos in your apple orchard. Gorgeous.

Okay--we are still waiting for his call. We thought today for sure but it wasn't there...maybe tomorrow. I am glad to know someone is feeling the exact same way I am. Are you sending them in this week?

My oldest son just returned from his mission last night. It was so hard to send him but so sweet to get him back home...a little changed but all good! My next son sends his papers in next week. I love this process. What a blessing it is.
