Easter

This is still my most favorite video on Easter. I know its a tad bit early, but I'm preparing my lesson in YW for that week and we're using this as our meat for the lesson.

It is a reminder that because Jesus walked such a long lonely path, utterly alone.....we do not have to do so.

I have a testimony of the atonement. This year I've come to rely on him more and more as I try to do everything that needs to be done in a day and still fall short, He guides me. I am perfected in Him. He strengthens me in times of need. I see His love surrounding others and it comforts me too.




I love the symbolism of new life that the Easter season brings. The spring flowers, the eggs, the chicks, the green grass and the budding trees. All these things symbolize to me new life which is what the Savior has offered to us by his sacrifice on the cross. We can repent of our sins and be offered anew because of the atonement. In this process it is by him, through him and of him that we can make it back to live with our Father in Heaven. Each tulip, each boiled egg, each spring chicken reminds me that I can start whole again.

Easter is such a symbolic time of year, what symbolism is your favorite?
