Why i love Easter

I love Easter because...

We can hunt for easter eggs in the garden..


And hunt again the next day to find the ones that are missing... (easter bunny is forgetful in our house!)


We can go out for dinner as a family and spend lots of time together... (Nice photography Jory)


We can have lots of naps...

We can drive up to Burnie to go to an Easter festival... Then because we don't get up there much, stop in penguin and visit Dad's Grandma's grave...








We can show our sweet gentle spirits by putting lots of pretty flowers on the lonely graves that have none...


We can run from the car to the loo and stop to take silly pictures on the way...

We can hug giant penguins!...


And we can stop and play at the park while mum feeds Asha in the car...





But the reason that i love Easter time the most...

It gives us such a great opportunity to stop.. and to reflect and remember what the real meaning behind Easter is. It seems that every year more and more people forget, or choose to ignore it..
I feel so blessed to know that Jesus Christ died on Good Friday and rose again on Easter Sunday... That he is the Saviour and he suffered, bled and died on the cross just for us. He went to the garden of Gethsemene and bled from every single pore in his body- feeling the pain of every sin we have ever committed... He willingly did this! And just for us, so that we may be forgiven of all of our sins and return to live with our Heavenly Father once more. I love the real meaning of Easter.

I saw this video on the church website and it really touched me.. I love it so much because it is the prophet and his counselors testifying of Jesus Christ, and it really stands out to me. To me they aren't just people speaking meaningless words... They are speaking from the heart and i can feel that what they are saying is true.
I love it because in the front of the Pearl of Great Price in Declaration 1 it says "The Lord will never permit me or any other man who stands as President of this Church to lead you astray" ...
It is an expert from President Wilford Woodruff's address regarding the manifesto... I really love it because it confirms to me that what the Prophet is testifying of is the truth...


I know not everyone believes all of this.. And everyone has their own opinions and beliefs, and that is great too =) These are just mine, so don't get offended that i am sharing them with you =) If you have time the video is worth a look, it is only two minutes long.

Happy Easter!!!
