We went to Foothills Park for an Easter egg hunt and brunch with our ward. The kids had a great time. We had games and food and searching. Tonight the three younger girls dyed Easter eggs. Nicole brought her friend, Emily. Robin still looks like she is recovering from being sick.
It is the week leading up to Easter. So I have been memorizing more of The Living Christ. I am continuing learning this wonderful testimony of the Savior, Jesus Christ. I want to type it out to help in the memorization. I am halfway to having it all memorized, thanks to Jeslyn and Nicole.
“He instituted the sacrament as a reminder of His great atoning sacrifice. He was arrested and condemned on spurious charges, convicted to satisfy a mob, and sentenced to die on Calvary’s cross. He gave His life to atone for the sins of all mankind. His was a great vicarious gift in behalf of all who would ever live upon the earth.
We solemnly testify that His life, which is central to all human history, neither began in Bethlehem nor concluded on Calvary. He was the Firstborn of the Father, the Only Begotten Son in the flesh, the Redeemer of the world.
He rose from the grave to “become the firstfruits of them that slept” (1 Corinthians 15:20). As Risen Lord, he visited among those He had loved in life. He also ministered among His “other sheep” (John 10:16) in ancient America. In the modern world, He and His father appeared to the boy Joseph Smith, ushering in the long-promised “dispensation of the fulness of times” (Ephesians 1:10).”
I am grateful for the life of my Savior, Jesus Christ, and His atoning sacrifice that helps me each day.
