Happy Easter!
Hope you had a chance to indulge by having some peeps, Robin's Eggs, Reese's eggs, Cadbury creme eggs, jelly beans or even a chocolate bunny as we celebrate Easter Sunday.

(Luckily for me, my fabulous "Easter Bunny" brought me nail polish this year instead (: )

As much as I love egg hunts, candies in pastel wrappers, freakish rabbit costumes and old family traditions, I can't help but think of the spiritual significance behind Easter. As I've gotten older I've noticed how much I allowed a wall of colorful plastic eggs and decorated baskets to block my view of what really mattered during this sacred holiday.

The atonement and resurrection of our Savior, Jesus Christ, has had a profound influence upon my life. Recently, I've had personal revelation come into my life concerning Christ and his role in my existence. I feel as if I have grown closer to him throughout my struggles these past few months. When I was at my lowest, he was there to raise me back up. He was my support that no one else could be. He understood me like no one else could. He was patient (and still is) as I fell back into my old habits and began the repentance cycle over again. He gave me hope when I had none and forgave me for the pain that my mistakes inflicted upon him.

Jesus Christ died for all mankind to be saved.
He lived that he might understand our trials perfectly.
He lives now to help us that we might triumph over this world as He did.

Whenever I feel overwhelmed by my setbacks and future ahead of me, I know that I won't ever be alone with Him on my side. I know that trials will still come my way, but by accepting His gift of the atonement into my life, whatever I will go through will make them eaiser for me to endure.

Our Heavenly Father gave us the gift of life, but our Savior gave us the gift to live.
