He Is Risen

As I think of holidays and their significance, Easter, for the Christian world, is second to none.

The life of Jesus, his teachings, his example, his establishment of his organization surrounding that 'final' weekend 2000 years ago. His atonement in the Garden of Gethsemane and his cruel suffering during the time leading up to and through the Crucifixion are brought into perspective that Easter morning. For when the angel said to the two Mary's:
Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified. He is not here: for he is arisen (Matt 28:5-6).
People may wonder why the LDS Church does not use the cross as part of it symbolism. The answer is simple, we worship a living Christ. He is not dead, he is risen. He is alive and leads his church today, just like he did in the meridian of time.

Today, during the 180th General Conference, we heard touching testimony of the Savior and his redeeming love and manifestations from President's Uchtdorf and Monson.

Easter is a special time; a day I love and cherish.
