Happy Easter

Just a short note for Easter....
{Posted on by Jill}
 When I became deathly ill 1 month after my husband and I were married in the temple, I really gained a new love and respect for my Savior. I was heartbroken thinking that I was going to leave my new eternal companion and spent hours and hours on my knees begging him to save me so I didn't have to leave my sweetheart. It was after a particular surgery where in recovery the nurses kept telling the doctor's that they were losing me. I had a very special experience where I knew that I had the option to choose to live. God was going to let me either come home and be out of pain or give me the chance to go back and live with my husband but continue to suffer. He let me know that he would be with me, but it would be painful. All I cared about was being with my husband if even for 1 more day. I instantly woke up in screaming pain, and have struggled with my health for the last 3 years of our marriage, but he kept his promise. I'm alive and I wake up every day to see my sweet husbands face, and for that I am eternally grateful. That is why my Savior, Jesus Christ, is important to me.
