Sorry ya'll I'm picture-less this Friday! I haven't been taking pictures really this week because it's been insanely busy. I could put together a collage of my 1. laundry basket, 2. the baseball field, 3. 9 Round gym, 4. my couch and 5. my desk - because that's what's really accounted for my entire week.

I'm linking up with Lauren @ From My Grey Desk for her High Five for Friday!



But, today I want to do a kind of special High Five For Friday - the Good Friday Edition! Good Friday is something to totally high five about. At least in my book it is, so here on my little piece of the Internet, that's what's going down! If you're not a Christian or not LDS don't worry, I'm not trying to convert anyone. I'm just sharing some of my religious history.

I want to take a moment to pause life, to remember the Savior and how his atonement and death was such a miraculous gift to us all.

Jesus's atoning sacrifice took place in the Garden of Gethsemane and on the cross at Calvary. In Gethsemane He submitted to the will of the Father and began to take upon Himself the sins of all people. He has revealed some of what He experienced as He paid the price for our sins:
"I, God, have suffered these things for all, that they might not suffer if they would repent;
"But if they would not repent they must suffer even as I;
"Which suffering caused myself, even God, the greatest of all, to tremble because of pain, and to bleed at every pore, and to suffer both body and spirit—and would that I might not drink the bitter cup, and shrink—
"Nevertheless, glory be to the Father, and I partook and finished my preparations unto the children of men" (D&C 19:16–19; see also Luke 22:44; Mosiah 3:7).
The Savior continued to suffer for our sins when He allowed Himself to be crucified—"lifted up upon the cross and slain for the sins of the world" (1 Nephi 11:33).
On the cross, He allowed Himself to die. His body was then laid in a tomb until He was resurrected and became "the firstfruits of them that slept" (1 Corinthians 15:20). Through His death and Resurrection, He overcame physical death for us all.
Jesus Christ redeems all people from the effects of the Fall. All people who have ever lived on the earth and who ever will live on the earth will be resurrected and brought back into the presence of God to be judged (see 2 Nephi 2:5–10; Helaman 14:15–17). Through the Savior's gift of mercy and redeeming grace, we will all receive the gift of immortality and live forever in glorified, resurrected bodies.  (source)

I'm not going to preach. I just want to share with everyone out here that I know that Jesus Christ atoned for our sin's, he died and was resurrected so that we too can return to live with Heavenly Father one day.I am not perfect. I sin. A lot. But I know we can all receive this gift if we choose.

Ok ya'll, you can get back to your regularly scheduled High Five For Friday! posts and I'm appreciate if you've read this far!
