One of THOSE Posts! Oh My!

The YM and YW recieved the assignment to sing in Stake Conference...there is the often typical scenario of more YW than YM but we were just glad to have this many turn out! So, the real funny thing about these pictures is that I was using my phone, I did not have my glasses with me, and I've been known to take blurry pictures...Now, I knew the pictures were blurry but I thought it was because I couldn't you can see they are just plain blurry! So sorry!

Okay, so the reason I really LOVE this particular picture is because the man with the curly, red hair is the YM President in our ward and when I look at him I get a glimpse of what my husband was like 30 years ago... even the attitude is the same... a little cocky, bordering on arrogant and everyone loves him (amazing how 30 years can temper a soul - still loved by everyone but much less noticable). Our ward went to do baptisms for the dead and the temple workers couldn't believe he was old enough to hold the Melchizedek Priesthood... the boys follow him like he was the Pied Piper... a good thing this piper loves God and is leading them to Christ!
This is so you can make the comparison...I showed this picture to Brother Axelguard (the red head in the suit) and his wife, (she is a counselor in our ward YW) and they were both surprised at how much Chris looks like Mark at that age! ... My husband is gonna roll his eyes at me when he finds out what I've done! I love you Mark Raymond! And, no... he didn't sing with us dressed like case any of you were wondering!

More Stake Conference
