Easter was a great day, I've got to tell you. The sun was shining and I was with my family. What could be better? Nope, not just the candy could keep me happy today. I needed the full spiritual boost!
Easter church has always been a favorite but today seemed especially wonderful. We had a missionary farewell (even though that is not what they are supposed to be) in our ward. He shared a wonderful testimony of Christ and the resurrection.
I admit, I totally bawled! Where are the tissues when you need them?
Then Relief Society was THE BEST! Patti- you did a great job teaching. Thank you for sharing your thoughts, testimony and the Spirit with me today. Sorry I make you cry when you look at me. Is it my face or the fact that I can't NOT cry when I hear you talk about the Savior? Your testimony is a true example to me. I hope you know I am very grateful that you are my friend!
After church was fun with hubby's family. Great lunch, fun hunt and wonderful conversation (well, until the end when we had to make a quick getaway before I lost my lunch because of the off-colored jokes- seriously people, it was getting bad!).
It was a short one, but beautiful all the same. Then the fam went for a walk. The day was just too beautiful not to fully enjoy it. I love Spring! There were friends and family we saw while we were out and about. We saw flowers. We enjoyed the not-freezing weather. It really was the epitome of Easter to me. Everything looks new.
If you want to enjoy a very inspiring Easter video check out Wendy's post from yesterday. I watched it twice. Loved it. Loved the music. Also, check out Heidi's Easter post. She has a fabulous link to a youtube video that was just beautiful!
PS I think my kids have had way too much candy.
Today's Theme song- Face to Face by Kenneth Cope. Beautiful music about the Savior!
