Happy Easter!

These last few days I've been so happy to see signs at businesses stating they would be closed for Easter Sunday. Local retailers say, "Thanks for coming, have a happy Easter" after we check out. I am comforted to know that this holiday is celebrated and honored.

I loved Elder Jeffrey R. Holland's talk, "None Were With Him" and found this great (short) video clip:

My favorite quote: "...may we declare ourselves to be more fully disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ, not in word only and not only in the flush of comfortable times but in deed and in courage and in faith, including when the path is lonely and when our cross is difficult to bear. This Easter week and always, may we stand by Jesus Christ “at all times and in all things, and in all places that [we] may be in, even until death,”21 for surely that is how He stood by us when it was unto death and when He had to stand entirely and utterly alone."

**What do you do to remember the Savior at Easter?
