An Easter Declaration...

“In our hour of deepest sorrow, we can receive profound peace from the words of the angel that first Easter morning: ‘He is not here: for he is risen.’”

“As one of His special witnesses on earth today, this glorious Easter Sunday, I declare that this is true, in His sacred name—even the name of Jesus Christ, our Savior—amen.”
—President Thomas S. Monson

This is my testimony also. Jesus lives. He atoned for our sins, he is here to strengthen us. We can reach out in humble prayer asking for comfort and guidance.  We can say yes to the promptings of the Spirit. We can learn to forgive just as Jesus did and does today. I know my Redeemer lives. What comfort this sure knowledge gives. I am striving to go where He wants me to go. I'll strive to be what He wants me to be. I try to say what He wants me to say, and I'll continue to do what He wants me to do by getting up and trying again and asking for hel[p where I'm falling short. (Which is often but it isn't going to stop me.)
