"And now, my sons, remember, remember that it is upon the rock of our Redeemer, who is Christ, the Son of God, that ye must build your foundation; that when the devil shall send forth his mighty winds, yea, his shafts in the whirlwind, yea, when all his hail and his mighty storm shall beat upon you, it shall have no power over you to drag you down to the gulf of misery and endless wo, because of the rock upon which ye are built, which is a sure foundation, a foundation whereon if men build they cannot fall."

Helaman 5:12

Happy Easter!

At this Easter I wish to share a poem that was written by my husband's Great-great- great-Grandpa Parley P. Pratt. This was put to music and included as a hymn in the LDS Hymn books.

Jesus, once of humble birth
Now in glory comes to earth
Once he suffered grief and pain
Now he comes on earth to reign

Once a meek and lowly lamb
Now the Lord, the great I Am
Once upon the cross he bowed
Now his chariot is the cloud

Jesus, once of humble birth
Now in glory comes to earth
Once rejected by his own
Now their King he shall be known

Happy Easter!!

we'll be celebrating the resurrection three days after the passover, 042008, but happy easter to you and yours!

is it my imagination or does easter get farther and farther away from passover every year?


and, what starla said - you are a very good blogbuddy, kell!

Starla, the same is thought of you on my end. (L)(F)(R)

Tell you family happy Easter from me, as well.

Nanc, This is about as early as the Western Easter has been for most people in living memory. Personally, I think that the date of Easter is of little long as His Resurrection is observed/celebrated.

My family does not have an 'Easter' basket on Easter. I will do a 'spring' basket on the Saturday before, however.

What do you do to celebrate the Resurrection?

Oh, and Nanc, :) likewise...what you said.

our son has brought the passover to our attention quite a few years ago - when he began studying judaism, he always wondered why "easter" rarely followed passover, so for him, we gave up easter and recognize the risen LORD on the third day after passover by just praying and recognizing ALL HE does for us daily. it's no big celebration really.


that's where we place our hope each and every moment.

Nanc, that is very neat that your son recognized that...which is true.

We go with the traditional Easter [which for us is a celebration of His Resurrection] just as we celebrate the traditional Christmas though it isn't really on December 25th.

I know that my Redeemer lives!
What comfort this sweet sentence gives!
He lives, he lives, who once was dead;
He lives, my ever living head!
