"Wherefore, ye must press forward with a steadfastness in Christ,
having a perfect brightness of hope and a love of God and of all men..."
2 Nephi 31: 18-20
Throughout the week we've worked on our Easter Tradition.
I told the kids a story about a hike I took once while camping. How I climbed an unmarked hill to get to the hiking trial. Once on the trail, I knew where to go. However, on the way back down I couldn't find the exact spot where I'd transversed the hill. My guess brought me out of the woods on the far side of the camp. I'd missed my destination just by a simple miscalculated error.
We read the scripture above in it's entirety.
We talked about the path we walk every day. We emphasized how the steps we want to take on that daily path should be be like our Savior who showed us exactly where to go and how to walk it so we wouldn't miss our mark.
Then we began our pinup of "steps" to take each day working toward this holiday weekend .. and hopefully remembering them always.
I love this holiday. I love how it brings our family together.
I love these little feet ... even the backwards ones ;)
And the ones making their own walk a little more independently so they'll be on the wall beside his chair at the kitchen table :)
Mostly, I love everything that Easter means to me and my heart because He lived.
Happy Easter to you and yours!
