Easter Holiday

As tomorrow is Easter,
I want to talk about the real reason for this holiday.
As much as I love me a good chocolate bunny,
I love the true reason for the season much more.


Jesus Christ is the Savior of the World.
He came here to save us from our sins.
He suffered in the Garden of Gethsemane,
and on the cross.
He was mocked, tortured, and hung up for the world to see.

Three days after they crucified Him,
He rose from the tomb!
A resurrected being, perfect, and whole.
He came back to His apostles to help them to keep going without Him.

After He left Jerusalem,
He visited the Americas
for as He said "other sheep I have which are not of this fold",
meaning those faithful in other parts of the world.

Some say He was just a man.
A very influential man,
but just a man.
This is not so.
He is our Elder Brother, our greatest ally,
our Savior.

I know He suffered for me,
and now it's my job to repent of my mistakes,
to live the way He wants me to
so I can live with Him again.

As you gather with your family this Easter Sunday,
pray with them for this crazy world we love in.
This world is not going to get any better unless we do something about it!
Prayer has always been the most powerful thing in the world.

For more info on what I believe in,
and just some really comforting things
here's the website on Mormons,
the official church website,
and the YouTube channel.

Happy Easter everyone!
