Yesterday's post seems to be a good segue into an Easter countdown. We kind of did one of those for Christmas, so we should certainly do one for Easter.
I've probably quoted it before, probably around Christmas, but I have long loved President Hinckley's Christmas Devotional quote: Without the death, it would be just another birth.
His Atonement, His crucifixion, and His Resurrection were the 3-fold culmination of our Savior's mission on Earth. Without them, He would just have been an amazing teacher. But He was unfathomably so much more.
