"Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life:
- John 11: 25-26 (KJV)
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
Two years ago at Easter time, we celebrated the secular holiday together:
Last year at Easter time, I thought it would be interesting to examine the religious Easter:
This year I thought we'd try one of each.
Accordingly, I split the Easter mail as I thought it best fit a particular theme. NOTE: These two Easter pages do NOT contain the same material. Other than the Birthdays and Dates to Remember, they are entirely different.
And yes, I'm aware that if your attitude is perfect enough, all things secular can be considered spiritual (and probably vice versa, if the obverse is true!), but just humor me here for the sake of simplicity. Thanks!
From Me ('65) of NC - 04/16/06:
|There are so many different ways in which this most sacred of all Christian holidays, celebrating as it does the resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and his victory over the grave, is observed, I thought it might require a complete textbook to do so herein. I decided instead simply to wish each of you a beautiful, blessed Easter, however you may - or may not - be celebrating it. We're observing it here together as we try to do all holidays because we are one big family, and we love each other, and that is what families do.|

|What a great reminder, Shari! Thanks!!!|
From Me ('65) - of NC - 04/08/07:
This reminds me of a site I think I'll just toss out there (because it's Easter, after all!). It was devised especially for Latter-day Saints to help them to remember to read their scriptures on a daily basis. You have the option of listening to them as well as reading along with the text, and you can set your own pace, and chart your progress each time. At the end you're rewarded with a spiritual thought - okay, they're really geared for Latter-day Saint, but that's just a happy bonus.
At the beginning of the year, I elected to read a chapter a day of the New Testament in this fashion, and as familiar as I am with it, I'm often astonished by the wording in certain of the less frequently quoted text. I can only imagine that as I've read it before, my eyes naturally jump to the more treasured verses at the expense of the surrounding passages. Whatever the case, it's been quite an adventure for me. Last year I read The Book of Mormon, which as you might imagine, is also available.
Both the Old and New Testaments of the Holy Bible are available, but only in the King James version.
My #2 daughter-in-law, Bethany Winona Harty (Siuslaw HS, OR - '94) of IL, alerted me to this site last year. That's just one of the many reasons I love her! Thanks again, Bethany!
(And, oh yes, lest there be any doubt, I love and adore both of my other daughters-in-law as well! And also my seven children!! And my nine grandchildren!!!)

Hoping your Easter holiday is
blessed with peace as you feel the love from our Saviour,
From Me ('65) of NC - 04/06/07:
As Easter time approaches, let me share with you the tender story of an eleven-year-old boy named Philip, a Down’s syndrome child who was in a Sunday School class with eight other children. Easter Sunday, the teacher brought an empty plastic egg for each child. They were instructed to go out of the church building onto the grounds and put into the egg something that would remind them of the meaning of Easter. All returned joyfully. As each egg was opened there were exclamations of delight at a butterfly, a twig, a flower, a blade of grass. Then the last egg was opened. It was Philip’s, and it was empty! Some of the children made fun of Philip. “But, teacher,” he said, “teacher, the tomb was empty.” A newspaper article announcing Philip’s death a few months later noted that at the conclusion of the funeral eight children marched forward and put a large empty egg on the small casket. On it was a banner that said, “The tomb was empty.”
From Me ('65) of NC - 04/08/07:
Some years ago, President Gordon B. Hinckley told “something of a parable” about “a one room school house in the mountains of Virginia where the boys were so rough no teacher had been able to handle them.
“Then one day an inexperienced young teacher applied. He was told that every teacher had received an awful beating, but the teacher accepted the risk. The first day of school the teacher asked the boys to establish their own rules and the penalty for breaking the rules. The class came up with 10 rules, which were written on the blackboard. Then the teacher asked, ‘What shall we do with one who breaks the rules?’
“ ‘Beat him across the back ten times without his coat on,’ came the response.
“A day or so later, … the lunch of a big student, named Tom, was stolen. ‘The thief was located—a little hungry fellow, about ten years old.’
“As Little Jim came up to take his licking, he pleaded to keep his coat on. ‘Take your coat off,’ the teacher said. ‘You helped make the rules!’
“The boy took off the coat. He had no shirt and revealed a bony little crippled body. As the teacher hesitated with the rod, Big Tom jumped to his feet and volunteered to take the boy’s licking.
“ ‘Very well, there is a certain law that one can become a substitute for another. Are you all agreed?’ the teacher asked.
“After five strokes across Tom’s back, the rod broke. The class was sobbing. ‘Little Jim had reached up and caught Tom with both arms around his neck. “Tom, I’m sorry that I stole your lunch, but I was awful hungry. Tom, I will love you till I die for taking my licking for me! Yes, I will love you forever!” ’ ” 8
President Hinckley then quoted Isaiah:
“Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows. …
“… He was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.” 9
- James E. Faust, “The Atonement: Our Greatest Hope,” Ensign, Nov 2001, 18

“Now, the next thing of which I am certain, and of which I bear witness, is the Atonement of the Lord Jesus Christ. Without it life is meaningless. It is the keystone in the arch of our existence. It affirms that we lived before we were born in mortality. Mortality is but a stepping-stone to a more glorious existence in the future. The sorrow of death is softened with the promise of the Resurrection. There would be no Christmas if there were no Easter.”
Gordon B. Hinckley,
