Happy Easter!

We were in Mexico this Easter!
We enjoyed going to church, being on the beach and being with family. 
I remember President Monson's closing remarks this past General Conference
when he was speaking of the Savior he said:
"I am grateful to Him. He taught us how to live. He taught us how to die. He secured our salvation."
Following he shared this beautiful poem by Emily Harris

"The linen which once held Him is empty.
It lies there,
Fresh and white and clean.
The door stands opened.
The stone is rolled away,
And I can almost hear the angels singing His praises.
Linen cannot hold Him.
Stone cannot hold Him.
The words echo through the empty limestone chamber,
“He is not here.”
The linen which once held Him is now empty.
It lies there,
Fresh and white and clean
And oh, hallelujah, it is empty." 

I too am grateful for the Savior and the many things He has given me. I know He lives and I know He will come again. I cannot wait to see his smiling face and hear the angles sing.
