Today, Justin and I spent Easter with my family. We woke up to Easter baskets full of chocolate! (Due to me asking if we were going to have Easter baskets.) Sometimes, I miss being a kid and want those fun memories to stay alive.
We had creamed eggs on ciabatta bread. My favorite Easter breakfast!
We went to church with my family and had a wonderful Sacrament Meeting and great talks from their bishopric about the Atonement.
When we got home, Justin, Bobby, and I played some volleyball. Grandma came over and we had Easter dinner: apricot-glazed ham, cheesy potatoes, almond green beans, fruit salad, orange-glazed rolls. We then played a rousing game of Apples-to-Apples. It was Grandma’s first time playing and she won!
We then had dessert: Angel food cake with strawberries!
We have also been watching the last episode of the Bible series on History channel. I am so sad that Justin and I don’t have television at home because I would have loved to watch it all. I’m a History channel fanatic! I am really enjoying this last episode–trying to make it more of a continuous scene rather than a documentary. It is very engaging! I love it!
But, what I really love about Easter is the Resurrection of our Savior. I bear my testimony that Christ is our Messiah, our Redeemer, our Savior. He sacrificed His life for us that we may live again like He does. If we follow His Gospel and try to be like He is, we can be resurrected and live with our families, whom we have been sealed to, for eternity. We celebrate Christ’s resurrection rather than His crucifixion because it gives us faith, hope, a believe that has been held onto for the past 2000 years and has been spread throughout the world. His Gospel is true and His Gospel is full of love. I love my Savior and I love the prophet Thomas S. Monson who leads the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in doing His will. I say these things, in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
I hope you all have a wonderful Easter eating chocolate and celebrating the resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
