Before April is over...

I had better post our Easter happenings before the month is through.
Easter just keeps getting better and better for me. It's a good time for me to reflect upon all our Savior has done for me... When I say me, I mean us - all of us. I had the chance to go to our Stake Easter program, A Walk With Christ, April 11th. My sister in law, Tania is in the same stake as I am, so we went together. We started at the scene of the birth of Christ which is always a touching thing for me to think about, especially now that I am a mother myself. I couldn't imagine such lowly circumstances while bringing such a precious miracle into the world. All that aside though, what a happy time! We continued on from room to room... Jesus teaching as a child, different miracles he performed, the Garden of Gethsemane, the Judgment, the Crucifiction, the Resurrection, the Reflections of Christ DVD -which I love. It was beautiful and very touching. At times it felt real. The people wore clothes that made them look like they were from Jesus' time. Some of them had their parts memorized and spoke like they really had been face to face with Jesus - as a friend or enemy. The last room was about Joseph Smith and the Book of Mormon - restoring the Gospel of Christ to the Earth again. I am grateful for this time of year to REALLY think about what our Savior, Jesus Christ did for me. Now, that I have children it means so much more, because I love them so much. I know that Jesus lived and died for them too, and suffered so much so that we could become like Heavenly Father and live with him and eachother forever. It means so much to me. It's indescribably wonderful!

I went to that too! Wasn't it amazing? My dad was part of it - Friday night he was the one in Gethsemane and Saturday he was Peter at the Last Supper. What a great reminder of Easter's real meaning!

Sounds like lots of fun! I love Easter! We really tried to focus on Christ this year. I'm surprised how much the girls picked up on. Thanks for sharing your testimony!

Hey!! What a wonderful post! Thanks for sharing that! :)

You know what - I LOVE my camera - although I would like to eventually get a professional camera, the one I have now takes phoenominal pictures. It is a Cannon PowerShot SD790 IS. It has some really neat features - and then I use Picasa and Picnik to edit them (both are free!) I hope that helps! :) How are you? I heard it has been raining qutie a bit up there? It is in the triple digits here in AZ - be glad you don't live here! :) Just kidding!
