Easter reflection...

But the angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid; I know that you are looking for Jesus who was crucified. He is not here; for he has been raised…” Matthew 28:5-6

Imagine being confronted with a miracle… Here Mary Magdalene and the other women who followed Christ had come to see that their Teacher had been laid to rest properly, and to say a final goodbye. They thought everything was lost – until the angel appeared to them and told them the good news.

The Good News – that Jesus lives. He died for us and He rose again to give us hope of eternity. When all seems to be lost, we can remember this promise and be comforted, whatever comes.

When Mary Magdalene and the others heard that their Messiah lived, they ran to tell the other disciples, never doubting that what the angel said was true. What great joy must have been theirs that morning! What great joy is ours in sharing this miracle now!

Jesus, I dance for the joy of Your resurrection!

Have a blessed Easter!

Hello Joanne....
I hope you had a blessed, joyous Easter. I’m just starting to catch up, way behind with so many things. How is your garden? we’ve had the most spectacular spring, wall to wall sunshine for well over a month. today it rains for the first time, we need it badly, but I have so much enjoyed being outside, I’m not up to arduous gardening yet, but its good to simply potter. Have a peaceful Sunday. Love - Marion
