Happy Easter Everyone!
Today in church is was wonderful! I learned the reason why we have Eggs at Easter time in Sacrament. I do not know the complete details, as usual, but the gist is....
There was a civilization long ago that worshiped the sun. And eggs, they believed had a little sun inside of them. Which we know to be the yoke. But they liked the symbolism of the egg yoke being a sun. And when you see an egg, and feel an egg. It is kind of like a stone/rock. So when a chick breaks out of its shell, it symbolizes Christ exiting the tomb!
I thought it was so cool, the analogy made so much sense! Truly because of the Savior there is no death! What a miracle! For many people, they believe God to be unjust, and wonder why there is suffering in the world.
Well the answer to that, is that God is JUST, and MERCIFUL ;) He loves us so much that He gave us His Son! Think of it, your own child! And through Christ we can live again. The pain that comes from losing a loved one, it can be healed! There is a Plan, and because of that Plan, we can see our loved ones who have passed away. In Alma 7:11-12 and 1 Corinthians 15 Christ`s Resurrection is highlighted perfectly! So why does Christ matter, it is Because of Him, that everyone can live again!
She is a hard worker, and deserves all the free time she can get!
Much love to you all! Thank you for your prayers and thoughts! I am thinking of you as well!
