Happy Easter!



I hope you all have a wonderful Easter Sunday. I sent my boys off to church and I'm at home by myself resting and pondering the life, death and resurrection of our Savior, Jesus Christ. What an incredible blessing it is that because Jesus Christ died for us and was resurrected, we can also be resurrected and live with him again someday. I'm so grateful for this knowledge that we have and the blessing it is in our lives. I'm grateful that we can enjoy celebrating this fun holiday with family and for the many traditions we have, but I'm more grateful today for my Savior, Jesus Christ! I've been listening to this song all morning and I think that the words are so beautiful and perfect on this Easter Sunday. (If you want to listen to the song you can click on the link. When you get there on the left hand side make sure you check "Music and Words" to hear the song.)

"I Know That My Redeemer Lives"

I know that my Redeemer lives.
What comfort this sweet sentence gives!
He lives, he lives who once was dead.
He lives, my ever living Head.
He lives to bless me with his love.
He lives to plead for me above.
He lives my hungry soul to feed.
He lives to bless in time of need.

He lives to grant me rich supply.
He lives to guide me with his eye.
He lives to comfort me when faint.
He lives to hear my soul's complaint.
He lives to silence all my fears.
He lives to wipe away my tears.
He lives to calm my troubled heart.
He lives all blessings to impart.

He lives, my kind, wise Heavenly Friend.
He lives and loves me to the end.
He lives, and while he lives, I'll sing.
He lives, my Prophet, Priest, and King.
He lives and grants me daily breath.
He lives, and I shall conquer death.
He lives my mansion to prepare.
He lives to bring me safely there.

He lives! All glory to his name!
He lives, my Savior, still the same.
Oh, Sweet the joy this sentence gives.
"I know that my Redeemer lives!"
He lives! All glory to his name!
He lives, my Savior, still the same.
Oh, sweet the joy this sentence gives:
"I know that my Redeemer lives!"

Thank you for the song on this Easter morning AND thank you for your testimony! I also know that my Redeemer lives and watches over me and all of my family! I am thankful to know God's plan, life, and the resurrection. I know we will see Grandma Ige again and Ronald and Farmor. I miss them! I feel so much strength each and every day because of our Redeemer's love and calming hand!

Such cute little boys you have!! They look adorable for Easter! It sounds like you had a great weekend. I'm glad that you were able to get out and enjoy a bit of the fun too! I think we will have to brave all of the kids and parents and go to the easter egg hunt at the park next year! Sounded like quite the adventure!

I love the pictures of your family (although, where are you?) You are so good at sharing your testimony in your blog. I need to do that sometime.
