Sunday Sunshine: Easter

Easter is and has always been one of my favorite holidays. Of course as a child I enjoyed Easter mainly because of the easter eggs, bunny, baskets and so so much CANDY! My parents  I mean 'Easter Bunny' was clever and would hide each of our baskets through out the house along with the eggs we had spent time as a family together the night before decorating and coloring. We each made ONE egg that said our name & the "bunny" would put it in our baskets to let us know who basket was who's. Waking up and searching for them is one of the traditions that if we had kids, I would keep that as a tradition in our home because I enjoyed it so much. Big family dinners and easter egg hunts up at my Grandmother's house area all very fond memories. . .
As I got older and more mature, I still enjoyed that family tradition however, I grew to love and cherish this holiday for the 'real' meaning. We celebrate Easter not for a fictional lifesized magical rabbit who leaves us candies and goodies, but for the love and sacrifice our Savior made for us. We remember and honor the sacrifice and pain he endured but we celebrate the gift he gave us. . .ability to be forgiven for our sins and for Christ's resurrection. I cannot even come close to creating words that are beautiful and humble enough to honor what he did for me and every single person that has ever lived upon this earth. So instead please watch this video and remember why Easter is and should be a sacred and honored holiday. . . .I believe in Christ, he is my King

I know many of my readers are of many Religions and Faiths. . .this is a video from my church and it's a touching message, it's a message that all Christians believe. He has risen!

My Testimony

It's hard to put into words how I feel toward my Heavenly Father and the Savior. I have so many reasons to be thankful for what I have gone through & endured. Because of my trials in life I have gained a strong testimony of Faith. I have always had Faith in the Lord and in Prayer. As I faced the decision to get a double lung transplant I had to rely on faith to make the choice.....By listening to the spirit, I was guided to Pittsburgh where my life was saved. I believe prayers are answered. I have always tried to follow the philosophy of this: If I do what the Lord expects of me, he will give me what I want & need. That has always worked for me. I Believe in MIRACLES..........My life on this earth is a miracle- I prayed on my knees for years to be healed from my lung disease. I knew that through a priesthood blessing (if it was God's will) I could be healed. So many times I thought he would heal me instantly...my faith was tested as I continued to get sick and no cure was in my future. I turned to prayer....I talked to my Heavenly Father, I cried to him and he heard me and he healed me by guiding me to Pittsburgh and guiding the surgeons hands. I learned humility, and thankfulness. I realized that we need others to lean on and we are supposed to strengthen each others testimonies. I learned that the hardest things we'll do are usually the greatest blessings in our life. I was able to experience a lot of things during surgery and I know I had comforting angels in my ICU room. THe Lord knows each of us by name and he will never leave our side. We need to remember to stay close to him and have Faith that he is watching over us. I know this for a fact! I know that following the gospel will bring us true happiness- the world will tell us otherwise, but I know I am truely happy & living the gospel has brought me that. Amen
