Leslie & Aaron... painting eggs on our first Easter together.
Leslie & Aaron Jr. & Aaron... our final Easter together as a family.
Aaron Jr. this year. He IS saying 'cheese'. :) He had a great time egg hunting and playing with his cousins. It was a nice day.
I am grateful for Easter. It helps us to remember the love of our Father in Heaven.
'For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.' -John 3:16
'Now upon the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they came unto the sepulchre, ... , and certain others with them.
And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulchre.
And they entered in, and found not the body of the Lord Jesus.
And it came to pass... behold, two men stood by them in shining garments:
And as they were afraid, and bowed down their faces to the earth, they said unto them, Why seek ye the living among the dead?
He is not here, but is risen: remember how he spake unto you... ,
Saying, The Son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again. -Luke 24:1-7
I am grateful for the Savior. Because of Him, we can all live again. Because of Him, we can correct our wrongs. I am grateful that I can turn to Him when I need peace, comfort, and for my burden to be made light.
'He is the light and the life of the world; yea, a light that is endless, that can never be darkened; yea, and also a life which is endless, that there can be no more death.' - Mosiah 16:9
Here is an Easter video that reminds us of the meaning of Easter. I am grateful for this precious gift that we have all been given... the gift of our Savior.
The Easter video is at the bottom of that page titled: The Bread of Life.
Easter was yet another 'first' for us without Aaron. It seems like there is a 'first' every day... some days the 'first' is just more noticeable than other days... that Aaron is not there with us. Last year, we LOVED watching Aaron Jr. walk around with a basket collecting eggs. Aaron held the video camera while I took the photos. It was a special day. We missed Aaron so much on Easter this year, but we are grateful that we were able to spend it with so much family.
We love you, Aaron...
