I just love going to church on Easter Sunday. Growing up it was one of my favorite Sundays to go to church. My mom would put together a music program that the choir sung along with a little narration.The music program would take the place of the talks usually given. Although I am no longer in Idaho and attending church with my parents, I still love the messages that come across on Easter. It is a time for us all to refocus on the amazing gift of the atonement and the love our Savior has for us.
I know that Christ came to earth and suffered all that I may return to live with my Father in Heaven. It it because of the atonement that I can repent of my weaknesses and be forgiven. Not only that but he knows and understands everything that I go through. The good and the bad. How amazing is that! How often we go through trials and at times feel completely alone. But we are not alone. Our Savior has felt every pain that we may go through. He understands and can help ease our burden if we just follow him. I came across this video the other day and I love it. If you have time, watch it, it is simply amazing.
On a different note, with all the business of Easter Sunday we went the whole day without taking a single picture of Emma in her Easter dress. So on Monday we went to our nearby park to take some family pictures. We had so much fun taking the photos. And I decided Jake has a natural talent in using our fancy camera. Most of mine like to turn out blurry, his not so much. One day I will learn how to use that thing :) I am just so glad that we were able to document Emma’s first Easter. Now I cant wait to get some of the pictures printed off. We finally have a family picture that is frame worthy! Here is a little peek into a crazy amount of photos that we took.
Emma just loves her Daddy and her Daddy just can’t get enough of his little girl.
