happy easter

I really miss my family on holidays, and easter is by far one of my favorites. going to the salt lake country club with my whole family, where they would parade around a 7 foot easter bunny with bug eyes and a mischievous smirk that would leave the little ones running to their moms in sheer terror and tears brings back a flood of memories.

on a more serious note, the First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints gave us an Easter statement (4.10.09):

At this Easter season of hope and renewal we testify of the glorious reality of the atonement and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. The empty tomb brought comforting assurance and provided the answer to the question of Job, "If a man die, shall he live again?" (Job 14:4).

Because of the Savior's resurrection we will overcome death and become the beneficiaries of His mercy and grace. 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). 

We give our sure witness that 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.

happy easter, from my heart to yours.

We missed you too although I'll tell ya...the easter bunny at SLCC was really small--kind of freaky. I prefer the taller one definitely.
