Lots of important stuff has happened on this day!
- 181 years ago today the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints was formally organized.
- 170 years ago the first cornerstone was laid for the (original) Nauvoo temple.
- 158 years ago the first cornerstone was laid for the Salt Lake City temple. 40 years later, again on April 6, this temple was dedicated by Wilford Woodruff.
- And, if D&C 20:1 is translated in this way (although it could simply be referring to the year), it is quite possible that my Savior himself was born on April 6, 2011 years ago.
- My Aunt Ruth celebrates her birthday every year on this day, as well. Happy Birthday Ruth!
Anyhow, that actually isn’t what I got online to tell you today. I was simply going to apologize for not saying anything in awhile and explain that I was on vacation in Sequim for 8 days and came home sick and then I was going to share some pictures with you.
But now I’m tired and so I’m going to leave you with this list of important April 6th events to ponder and wish you a happy spring.
