My heart is very full today with it being Easter and listening to the prophet and apostles today. Now that I am older Easter seems less like a holiday filled with the easter bunny and candy and more like a day to remember the Savior and all He has done for us. I love the holy week and how we get to celebrate His resurrection. Because He lives there is hope for the future. Because He lives I can find peace&comfort. Because He lives I am never alone. Because He lives I can overcome anything. Because He lives I can live with my family for eternity. Because He lives I can find joy. Because He lives I will be resurrected. Let us remember Him ALWAYS. And remember He is not here, For He is risen.

During my scripture study today I read d&c 20:22-24 "He suffered temptation but gave no heed unto them. He was crucified, died, and rose again the third day. And ascended into heaven to sit down on the right hand of the Father to reign with almighty power according to the will of the Father." I thought it was no coincidence that I read this today. I am now reading D&C since I finished the BOM (woo). I love this book as well. I love feasting the words of Christ and making it apart of my day.

I don't think we can fully comprehend what Jesus Christ did for us. I know he loves us and I am eternally grateful for his atoning sacrifice. I hope you all had a great easter and listening to conference!
Happy Easter
