Sunday Thought...

"Restoring what you cannot restore, healing the wound you cannot heal, fixing that which you broke and cannot fix is the very purpose of the Atonement of Christ..
"There is no habit, no addiction, no apostasy, no crime exempted from the promise of complete forgiveness. That is the promise of the Atonement of Christ." 
-Boyd K Packer (Ensign Nov 1995)

He Lives!

When Orson F Whitney was a missionary he had a powerful dream that he was a witness to the Savior's agony in the Garden of Gethsemane. It was so powerful, it ultimately changed his life. The following is actually a quote from Elder Holland:

"As Elder Whitney felt regarding this majestic gift and the giver of it, may we so feel: "I was so moved at the [gift] that I wept...out of pure sympathy...My whole heart went out to Him. I loved Hm with all my soul and longed to be with Him as I longed for nothing else." Having already offered the Atonement in our behalf, Christ has done His part to make that longing a reality. The rest will depend entirely upon ourselves." (Jeffrey R Holland "Broken Things to Mend")

May we love Him. May we believe Him. And every day may we follow Him...

On this Easter Sunday we testify that He lives and offer our deepest gratitude for the gift of the Atonement...
