Happy Easter!


Easter is celebrated differently by each of us. Many of us will attend church in celebration of the great holy day. Children enjoy receiving Easter baskets and some will enjoy showing off their Easter finery in church.

As a child I recall sunrise service where we enjoyed breakfast and a lesson regarding Christ's resurrection. Perhaps that is part of my fascination for sunrises, but I love sunsets too. One represents the closing of the day, where the day is finished, in this case it would be the completion of the crucifixion and the other the beginning of a brand new day or his resurrection and our rebirth.

Could you imagine being born with the purpose of suffering and dying on the cross for the sins of the world? Jesus was. His entire life,  while on earth, Jesus served by teaching, feeding, performing miracles, and ultimately dying for all mankind. After being ridiculed, beaten and ultimately crucified, His broken, bleeding, and bruised body was placed in a borrowed tomb.



Now very early in the morning of the third day the women of Galilee brought spices they had prepared to tend to the body, but were surprised when they came upon the cave to find the huge stone had been rolled away ~Luke 24:2 Can you imagine the glorious sun as it was rising finally showing light in the darkness and the women gasping in amazement as they beheld an empty tomb?

Verse 4 states the women were perplexed and then they saw two men in shining garments. They were afraid and fell with their faces to the ground. I love the angels response "Why seek ye the living among the dead? He is not here, but is risen; remember how he spake unto you when he was yet in Galilee, Saying, The Son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again." Verse 6,7 and then in 8 the women recalled Jesus' words and rushed back to tell the disciples. The book of Luke then tells us that the women were Mary Magdalene, Joanna, and Mary the mother of James (among other women).

Have a glorious Easter remembering that there is nothing in the world that Christ cannot conquer as He has already conquered sin and death. Take care and God bless!
