happy easter (a day late)

I'd be lying if I said I didn't really care about Easter candy.  Let's be real, it's the best candy.  But that's not why I love Easter.  I love Easter because it brings everything back into perspective.  I focus less on myself, and more on Christ.  I am reminded to be a better example, to live my life through my Savior.  He provided the ultimate sacrifice, so that I may have the opportunity to live with Him again.  Every day is more hopeful, every mistake less painful and every joy is just a little sweeter knowing that our Savior provided a way to return to Heavenly Father.  I am eternally grateful.

I love Easter because we get to celebrate the life of Jesus Christ.  I know without a doubt that He lives! 


p.s.  Am I the only one who got up at the crack of dawn this morning to go buy Easter candy on clearance, before all the good kinds were gone?! :)

Best reason to love Easter. I didn't get up early to buy Easter candy this year, I was so tired from the long day I had Saturday so I slept in. I think Yesterday was the first time I slept in on a Holiday LOL

Beautifully said!! I was going to buy some Easter candy this afternoon, but that aisle was absolutely INSANE! So I skipped it. Haha.
