Easter






In the midst of all of the Easter fun this weekend, I took some time to read and ponder on the first Easter. In my reading, I came across a line out of the Bible Dictionary under Resurrection that really caught my eye and has not left my mind since.

"The resurrection of Jesus is the most glorious of all messages to mankind."

In a very personal way, I think that I have always known this. I have known it because I was taught so at a young age by my parents. I was taught so in primary as I sang the words "He sent His son to die for us and rise with living breath." I was taught so as Cory and I stood over Clairisa's grave and sang "God be With You till We Meet Again". And again, I was taught so yesterday as the Spirit bore a powerful witness to me as I listened to our living apostles and prophets bear solemn testimony. I have been taught, and because of that I know for myself that it really is the most glorious message of all.

Lovely girls. Nathan still asks about the girls and wants to know if they can still be friends even when they live in Tennessee! (MSU beat Tennessee to go onto the final four). We tell him that TN still has a lot to offer, especially when it comes to people.

The girls look so beautiful! I also loved hearing the testimonies of the resurrection during conference, especially President Monson's. It was simple, yet powerful.
