Reconciling the Grave

It’s quiet.  Birdsong rides on the gentle breeze rustling the leaves.  The sun is a faint glow in the east, not yet ready to dawn the day.  The women speak in hushed voices, their whispers filled with sadness and longing.  “Who will roll the stone away?” they wonder.  “It’s too heavy for us.”   What is it about graveyards that make people whisper?  Those who reside in the tombs are sleeping eternal.  Voices won’t wake them.  Why is laughter or singing or normal speech avoided?  Is it out of respect or some kind of fear?  For the women walking through this...

King of Kings, Lord of Lords!

Have you ever been so overcome with the presence of the Lord that you can’t even think straight?  His Spirit hits you like a mighty wind, forcing you to your knees, hands shooting straight up towards Heaven and the words and images in your mind are unmistakably His?  That’s what happened while I was putting on my writer’s cap and searching my thoughts for a profound Easter article.  Instead of a profound article, I was given a glorious evening filled with praise and worship.   Eric was working.  I put my Paul Wilbur CD into the stereo and said a simple “Lord, give me your...

The Empty Tomb

Now on the first day of the week Mary Magdalene went to the tomb early, while it was still dark, and saw that the stone had been taken away from the tomb. Then she ran and came to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple, whom Jesus loved, and said to them, “They have taken away the Lord out of the tomb, and we do not know where they have laid Him.”
