Happy Easter!

A little bit ago when the weather was starting to get nice, well we had a few nice days in between some cold ones. I had a thought come into my head about Spring. How much of a miracle it is! I love this time of the year because to me its all about hope! The hope that Spring will come after winter. That the trees and flowers will bloom. The birds will come back and chirp again. That the grass will turn green from brown. That the world will transform and come alive again in all of its beauty.

This is symbolism for exactly what we celebrate at Easter! The Resurrection of our Savior Jesus Christ. He died on the cross but lives again! The knowledge that we have of this gives me hope for everything in the future. There is a purpose and importance to everything we do in this life. 
As members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, we are Christians , and believe in the living Christ. The reason we do not use the cross as a symbol of our religion is because we celebrate the Living Christ. We remember his suffering and all that he did for us. But the way we live our lives in accordance to his laws and teachings is a symbol of our religion.

Spring is a symbol of the Resurrection of our Savior Jesus Christ. I love this time of year to remember this! To find HOPE! and enjoy the beauty of this earth. Knowing that it was created for us by a loving Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ.

I hope you take the time to enjoy the beauty of this time of year and remember the real meaning of Easter. and enjoy the fun traditions too because that is fun too! Happy Easter everyone! :D
