This is the post we put up last year on Good Friday. As I read through it, it is still the way I feel about my Savior and Easter, so I am going to re-post it today as a FAVORITE Friday Fave! Have a wonderful Easter everyone! #BecauseOfHim
Last Friday for Friday Faves #56, we talked about the top 10 things that we love about Easter. Today is Good Friday, the day that is almost the culmination to Holy Week. Good Friday is the day Christ died on the cross. He atoned for our sins because He loves us. He made repentance possible.
But, we know that as difficult and sad as that part of the story is to read, that dark day is not where the story ends. Because, on the third day, Jesus Christ, the Savior of the World, overcame death and rose again. And, on Easter Sunday, that is what we celebrate! So, for today's Friday Faves # 57, we asked ourselves, and we ask you:
What helps you to remember the resurrection of Jesus Christ at Easter?
This is a special post to us and we felt that the best Easter message that we can share is the true one, so this is our Easter wish and Easter gift to you.
Between the 4 of us, we came up with a few excellent ways to remember the Savior and his glorious Resurrection.
24 Martha saith unto him, I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day.
This year I did follow along with #BecauseOfHim as we went through this Holy Week in the Savior's life. I hope that it added to the Spirit of your Easter this year!
Here at 3 Winks, we are all looking forward to some wonderful Easter traditions. We hope that you all have a wonderful time with your family and friends this holiday and are able to ponder the impact the Savior has made in your lives! We know that because of Him we have hope and peace.
“O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?” (1 Cor. 15:55).

I hope you had a wonderful Easter, Hazel. Jesus' Resurrection is definitely one of the cornerstones of my faith. I love your handwritten print - it's beautiful and so meaningful too. Thank you so much for sharing and for being a part of the Hearth and Soul Link party.
