Our journey continues…
Thursday’s timeline begins at sundown.
Save your study time for evening, if possible. If you would like to fully experience this day you may want to start a fast after your evening meal. Stay awake studying as long as you are able. The Lord did not sleep this night but endured mock trials and scourging.

Make time to record your feelings in your journal.
Saturday—The Jewish Sabbath, day of rest
Early Sunday morning read the passages about the Resurrection. Make time again to record in your journal the feelings you have this morning and I will share from my journal some of the feelings I’ve had in past years.
Friday, I thought on the Savior’s suffering for me specifically, and the weight of everyone’s sins. I felt relieved when 3 pm came around and I knew His suffering was over.
Sunday morning, I pondered the resurrection and felt joy, the kind of joy that is difficult to understand let alone describe. The image of me during natural childbirth came to mind. The pain I went through was almost more than I could take but when it was over I felt a relief of pressure that was as strong as the pain and an overwhelming sense of joy holding my baby. My human experience is as close as I will come to knowing the joy the Savior felt.
I hope you enjoyed your journey this week.
