I love Easter. Dying eggs, baking, tasty food, family, and most importantly taking time to remember Christ.
We began our Easter festivities today with the dying of eggs. It was quite fun and Elanor seemed to enjoy it as well (she liked watching and grabbing!).

I am looking forward to going to church tomorrow. I always love church, but I love Easter Sunday's message. Christ died for our us, so that we can, if we choose, have the capability to return to our Father in Heaven. Christ has given us that chance to repent. The most glorious thing about Easter is that Christ lives, because after death comes life! He was resurrected, and because of Him we will all be resurrected as well. I am so thankful for my (and everyone else's) Savior and for a Heavenly Father that loves me. Isn't Easter wonderful? We have so much to celebrate. Life! That is what we have and life after death because of him! Spring is the most wonderful time to celebrate this because all of those dead trees are coming to life with blossoms and leaves! Winter is over and the promise of summer is in the air--very symbolic of our own journey.
