My mother and I shared a love of two things: books and flowers. Easter Sunday would find me at her door with a pot of Easter lilies and we would take time to admire them again, as we did every year, the same way. We would praise their pure whiteness and clean fragrance, like good expensive soap. My mother has been gone many years, but every spring when Easter lilies make their appearance, I think of her.
“How would you explain to someone if they asked “How do you find peace in a crazy world?”
David Archuleta, 4/5/12
On this Easter and every day, this is a good question that deserves reflection. What gives you peace? Amid all the chaos and calamities that may befall, what stills your soul? For me it is the fact that I know that my Redeemer lives, and because He lives, this life is not the end. One day I will walk through fields of Easter lilies as far as the eye can see and on the horizon will be my mother and others I have known and loved, beckoning me home.
“If Christ lived after death, so shall men, each one taking the place in the next world for which he is best fitted. Since love is as eternal as life, the message of the resurrection is the most comforting, the most glorifying ever given to man; for when death takes a loved one from us, we can look with assurance into the open grave and say, ‘He is not here,’ and ‘He will rise again’.”
President David O. McKay
“We are born for a higher destiny than that of earth. There is a realm where the rainbow never fades, where the stars will be spread before us like islands that slumber on the ocean, and where the beings that pass before us like shadows will stay in our presence forever.”
So, how do you find peace?
