Spring, Glorious Spring

Our Mission President's wife, Sister Jeppson, likes to take songs that are popular and change the words to get her message across.  She will be in the middle of a talk and all of a sudden start singing her song with the changed words.  It is really fun to hear what she comes up with.  So in light of her example, I have taken the song Food, Glorious Food! (second verse)  from the musical Oliver and changed the words to get our message across.  It goes like this:

Spring, glorious spring!
We're happy to have it.
Things are all alive
You would want to visit!

Just picture a great big tree,
White, pink or red
Oh spring,
Wonderful spring,
Marvelous Spring
Glorious Spring!

Finally we are starting to get to see the beauty that is New Jersey.  We have never seen so many flowering trees.  Since New Jersey has been around for so many years the trees have grown to be quite big.  Take a look at the pictures below so you can enjoy the scenery with us.
