A good thing for the whole world: On Easter, a celebration of new life!

Happy Easter! It's an extra-special holiday here in Boston where we are enjoying Spencer, who entered the world on Thursday evening at 11:50 PM. He was 8 lbs, 2 oz. and 21 inches long. He's adorable and he and his parents are doing well. He came home from the hospital on Saturday night and had quite a sleepless night, but he's so cute that nobody can get impatient with him. I attended a wonderful Easter service in Steve and Lindsay's ward. They have a great organist on a real pipe organ, a fantastic choir and thoughtful speakers. The congregation doesn't sing like the Nigerians, however. Mitt Romney, presidential candidate and a member of their ward, sat a couple of rows in front of me. That was kind of interesting. There's a wonderful spirit in a home with a brand-new baby. My heart is quite full with gratitude for Spencer's safe arrival and for Christ's gift of his life that gives the promise of eternal life to the world.
