that easter morn
yesterday we celebrated easter with all it's traditions. we had our easter egghunt/picnic dinner on saturday up at oak glen and it was fabulous! we had good food, good friends, and a mighty good egghunt. the kids all had fun...and lots of candy! before going to bed, mason talked with the kids about the true meaning of easter. although egghunts, easter bunny, and candy are all fun, it's not the real reason why we celebrate easter. we then read in the bible the account of jesus' death & resurrection. i love these moments when we have the opportunity to teach & testify to our children of jesus christ! i don't think we can have too many of these moments either. our good bishop commented in sacrament meeting yesterday, on how we as latter day saints, should be just like nephi in the book of mormon..."we talk of christ,we rejoice in christ,we preach of christ,we prophecy of christ...that our children may know to what source they may look for a remission of their sins." i absolutely love this verse. as a mother, this is what i want to accomplish. this is what i know to be true and what i strive to teach my own children. how thankful i am each day, for that easter morn so long ago, when the savior of the world,fulfilled what he said he would do, for me & for you! he lives and i love him with all my heart.
