Happy Easter from everyday epistle

city crosses, as seen in Nashville, TN

Early on Sunday morning, as the new day was dawning, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went out to visit the tomb.

Suddenly there was a great earthquake! For an angel of the Lord came down from heaven, rolled aside the stone, and sat on it. His face shone like lightning, and his clothing was as white as snow. The guards shook with fear when they saw him, and they fell into a dead faint.

Then the angel spoke to the women. “Don’t be afraid!” he said. “I know you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He isn’t here! He is risen from the dead, just as He said would happen. Come, see where His body was lying. And now, go quickly and tell His disciples that He has risen from the dead, and He is going ahead of you to Galilee. You will see Him there. Remember what I have told you.” Matthew 28:1-7 NLT

    I still think of your poem “A Life Well Lived” from your 2006 Christmas card. So beautiful. I think you should post it today.
    Easter blessings to you and your family with love.

    • Oh, Julia! You are so sweet to remember that poem! Maybe I will post it on the blog. I have to find it in all the boxes first :) Ah, the joys of relocating… Happy Easter to you and your sweet family, too!
