It was our first Easter in Arizona! Here are some pictures of our Easter egg hunt. After the kids found the plastic eggs, we came inside and watched Easter Dream. Some of the eggs had tokens in them having to do with the Easter story so we looked up the scriptures that went with those, like little nails and a piece of red cloth. To this day, I don’t completely understand the crucifixion part, why it had to be so sad and violent. I know Jesus loves me and I am so thankful Jesus died for me.
It was our first Easter without my 18 year old at home. He stayed in Utah to live with my friends Don and Aneladee and pursue his various educational activities before he leaves for a mission. My friend Emily texted me some pictures of him having Easter dinner and a hunt with her family. That was a pleasant surprise. Thank you Emily!
I think the reason I love Easter egg hunts is because they symbolize the searching and hunting that gospel living is all about, and the sweet result that comes from persistence. Right now I am searching for an answer to a tough question. Maybe the answer will come during General Conference.
