38- What I the Lord have spoken, I have spoken, and I excuse not myself; and though the heavens and the earth pass away, my word shall not pass away, but shall all be fulfilled, whether by mine own voice or by the voice of my servants, it is the same.
1. Come, sing to the Lord, his name to praise.
He in these latter days did raise
A prophet to his name,
The blessed gospel to restore.
Come, sing to the Lord, his name adore!
2. The prophets of old beheld this day,
Its glory told in wondrous lay.
They saw our prophet dear,
Who times of fulness ushered in.
Come, sing to the Lord, his praises ring!
3. The keys of the priesthood of our Lord
To us in fulness are restored,
Their blessings to bestow,
And pow’rs divine are manifest.
Come, sing to the Lord, his name be blessed!
1. The prophet said to plant a garden, so that’s what we’ll do.
For God has given rich brown soil, the rain and sunshine too.
And if we plant the seeds just right and tend them carefully,
Before we know, good things will grow to feed our family.
2. We’ll plant the seeds to fill our needs, then plant a few to spare,
And show we love our neighbors with the harvest that we share.
Oh, won’t you plant a garden, too, and share the many joys
A garden brings in health and love to happy girls and boys!

(April Fool’s Treats) Chicken Not-Pie or Fried-Egg Sundae
1-Bake the crust:
Heat the oven to 450°. Unroll or unfold a piecrust on your work surface. Using the upside-down potpie tin as a guide, cut a circle of dough about 1/2 inch larger than the tin. (If you’re making more than one potpie, simply cut another circle from the dough. Reroll the scraps to cut out a third.) Crumple a piece of aluminum foil into a 1 1/2-inch ball and set it in the potpie tin. Cover it with a layer of foil to create a smooth mound, then lay the circle of dough on top.
3- Beat the egg with the water, then brush the mixture over the dough.
4- Set the pie tin on a baking sheet and bake the crust for about 10 minutes. Let it cool completely.
5- Make the filling:
Prepare the pudding according to the package directions and refrigerate until serving time.
6- Create the faux chicken and vegetables:
To make the Starburst or Tootsie Roll candies easier to work with, place them unwrapped on a paper plate and warm them in the microwave just until they’re slightly softened, about 12 to 15 seconds. (The Jolly Rancher candies will soften from the warmth of your hands.) Once you’ve shaped them, lay the candies on waxed paper or a paper plate, set apart from each other so they won’t stick together.
7- Corn kernels: Roll the yellow candy between your hands or on a clean work surface to create a 4-inch-long rope, then use kitchen shears or a sharp knife to cut the rope into 1/4-inch pieces. With your fingers, form each piece into a kernel by flattening one end and pinching the other.
8- Chicken: Use kitchen shears or a knife to cut the apple rings into 1/2-inch-wide pieces. If you’re using white chocolate, chop or break it into roughly 1/2-inch-wide pieces.
10- Potatoes: Peel the banana, slice off three 1/4-inch-thick pieces, then cut each piece into small cubes.
11- Cubed carrots: Cut each orange candy into 4 squares.
12- Assemble the pie:
Just before serving time, spoon about 2/3 cup of the pudding into the pie tin.
13- Add the candies and the fruit to the pudding, then set the piecrust on top.
Lemon pudding/pie filling (an instant mix works fine)
1- Scoop ice cream into a dish, then spoon on a generous blob of marshmallow fluff (it will smooth out and resemble an egg white as the air escapes).
2- For a yolk, add a rounded blob of lemon pudding. Makes one sundae.

1- Hide and Go Seek or Sardines.
2- Play pictionary. Make a list of things to draw. Cut up the list and place the papers in a pile. Choose one from the pile and draw what is listed on the paper, while everyone else tries to guess what it is.
3- Play UNO.
