Spring is Right Around the Corner

I LOVE  spring!!!! Perhaps it is because I do not enjoy being cold. Or maybe because I got sick of snow after we received the first 3 feet of it. Whatever the reason, I am blissfully happy that spring is on its way. And how do I know that it is just around the corner, because you can see it coming.  Warmer temperatures, the sun is really shining, tulips peeking through the dirt, my companion being waked up by birds singing in the morning. All these little signs are definite signs that spring is well on its way.

What I love most about spring is the freshness of life. Everything feels alive. While during the very long and dark winter months everything feels lifeless. During spring is when life begins again. Flowers begin to bloom, farm animals are born, people actually come outside. It is during this newness of life that I think of the Savior. It was during this time that he was preparing to give his life.

At the hands of evil men the Savior was a willing sacrifice for the sins of men. For three days, his mortal shell laid in a borrowed tomb. But on the third day, he took up his body. He conquered death. Since he conquered sin and death, we are given the opportunity to return to live with our Father in Heaven. I know that Christ lives. Spring will always be a time to appreciate eternal life, because the Savior conquered death during this beautiful time of year.

To read about his death see Matthew 26-28, Mark 15-16 , Luke 23-24, John 19-20
