oh sweet the joy this sentence gives.



Today I am especially grateful for my Savior, Jesus Christ. His gospel is central to who I am and the life I try to live. When I received my patriarchal blessing years ago, my testimony of the Savior was strengthened as I realized without any doubt that He knows me personally and loves me unconditionally. I love the message of this video.

On Easter Sunday, we celebrate Christ's resurrection and victory over death. He made it possible for all of us to overcome death and return to live with Him in the presence of God. I'm beyond grateful for Christ's perfect example and sacrifice -- and for the promise of eternal life with all of the ones I love (especially that husband of mine).

Happy Easter.

    I think you should spend a little more time researching the things you choose to shape your life around. The things you are talking about easily don't make sense. Resurrection from the dead? Vicarious redemption? Come on...you're smarter than that.

  13. so andrew, it appears that your supposition is that anyone who believes in concepts like unto resurrection or spiritual redemption is not smart. is that accurate? if so, i find your stance shockingly ill-informed, if not altogether ignorant, and so pretentious as to undermine whatever faint credibility that you (as an anonymous blog commenter) could hope to convey.

    there have literally been millions of brilliant people who believe in similar concepts, and whom the general populace would almost universally agree are of extraordinary intelligence.

    in essence, you are calling individuals such ghandi, barak obama, j.r.r. tolkien, martin luther king jr.--as well as an assortment of others--dumb. is that what you're intending to do? if so, i think we should question with whom an inability to reason really lies.
