MUSICAL INSPIRATION
"Give", said the Little Stream - Children's Song Book #236
Listen to Danielle Vaughn singing it here
Listen to Insideout A Cappella singing it here
*
“Give,” said the little stream,
“Give, oh! give, give, oh! give.”
“Give,” said the little stream,
As it hurried down the hill;
“I’m small, I know, but wherever I go
The fields grow greener still.”
*
Singing, singing all the day,
“Give away, oh! give away.”
Singing, singing all the day,
“Give, oh! give away.”
*
“Give,” said the little rain,
“Give, oh! give, give, oh! give.”
“Give,” said the little rain,
As it fell upon the flow’rs;
“I’ll raise their drooping heads again,”
As it fell upon the flow’rs.
*
Give, then, as Jesus gives,
Give, oh! give, give, oh! give.
Give, then, as Jesus gives;
There is something all can give.
Do as the streams and blossoms do:
For God and others live.

Personal Progress Possibilities:
Good Works #6
Spend at least three hours giving service outside your family. Ask your ward or branch Relief Society president or a community leader for suggestions for service. For example, you might take care of children while parents attend the temple; collect, make, or recondition toys or games for a nursery; accept an assignment to clean the meetinghouse; or perform errands for or read to a home bound person or others in need. Record in your journal the reactions of the person you served and possible goals for future service opportunities.

ACTIVITY
  • A easy hike, next to a stream if possible.  Wildflowers are in bloom. Beautiful!

PICNIC IDEA
  • chicken salad on a butter croissant
  • fruit flower kabobs

I thought these fruit flower kabobs displayed in containers filled with wheat grass was adorable.  So I thought I'd share.
