Happy Easter, Happy Spring, Happy Happy Everything!
My heart is so full of gratitude. What an amazing easter season it has been! The pageant was so amazing to watch Christ's life through his death. Last night My Dad spoke at the stake center on Christ. It was such an amazing talk. Then Today, Easter morning, I woke up with such gratitude for my wonderful savior and had the opportunity to share my testimony with my ward. What an example of a selfless person. We are so blessed to have his example and even more blessed that he was willing to die for us and feel each and everyone of our pain. In a world of trouble and uncertainty, His peace fills our hearts and eases our minds. Jesus is in very deed “the way, the truth, and the life” (John 14:6). "Jesus is the Christ. Though He was crucified, He rose triumphant from the tomb to our everlasting blessing and benefit. To each member of the human family He stands as our Advocate, our Savior, and our Friend." What a wonderful Easter. My testimony of the atonement has never been greater. I've experienced it in such a different way. My heart was completly torn a few months ago and because I've leaned on the Lord, He took away my pain and I can truly say filled it with Joy. My heart is full now, not broken. What an amazing thing that is. He was willing to die for us, I want to become more of a Christlike person and follow all of his commandments faithfully. What a wonderful life we have!
