Thoughts on Easter

So-due to circumstances beyond my control I have been waaaay busy lately! (I don't forsee an end to this either!) Here is some thoughts I had and wanted to share at Easter time...oh well.

I think of his hands
building with wood
blessing the children
breaking bread
pierced and bleeding
to pay the debt
for all mankind
for me-a sinner
such mercy, such love
and devotion
feeding the hungry
healing the sick
raising the dead.
Can I forget? No-
by taking the sacrament
by pondering the scriptures
by serving others
I will praise and adore
my brother
my friend
my savior
at the mercy seat
judging with love
with tenderness
with kindness
at the glorified throne
I kneel at his feet
with reverence
with gratitude
with humility

Oh! It is wonderful!

I still stand all amazed

Oh-about a week ago I prayed to Heavenly Father that I would have a greater appreciation and a deeper testimony of Jesus Christ and his sacrifice for us. But then I added, that I didn't want to have a trial or anything like that...

Last night one of the counselors in the bishopric called in a panic. The program he planned for Easter had all but fallen apart and asked if I'd be willing to speak on the atonement of Jesus Christ.

Man! It is amazing how our prayers are answered.
