His Sacred Name - An Easter Declaration
I know this video has been making the rounds. I think virtually every blog I read has had it posted in the past week or so, but it's well worth a second or third view, or if for the very first time seeing it, please let the message sink deep in your heart and soul. For a Christian like me, Easter is the ultimate holiday. The big one. Bigger than Christmas in it's significance.
For this reason, the Easter Rabbit comes Saturday to our home so that we can leave Sunday for the celebration of the religious importance of the day.
I will never forget the Easter Sunday that my oldest son Corbin, realized the message that his Primary leaders were trying to teach. He might have been about 5. He excitedly came to me and said, "Mommy, because of Jesus and Easter, you can see your Dad again!" He was thrilled with the concept that someone could be reunited with their loved ones after death because a Savior atoned and made the ultimate sacrifice on our behalf.
And now, this Easter Sunday, I feel a great responsibility to teach this important and comforting truth to that once little boy's own daughter.
Know this little Chloee, you WILL see your Mommy again. For this blessing, you have your Savior to thank and your Heavenly Father to obey and stay close to.
Happy and Blessed Easter to you all.
