He Is Risen

I haven't posted in almost a week...
like everyone else, we've been busy...

With things like...

taking our 15 year old to get his restricted driver's license
(Hayden got it on the second try,
don't tell him but it took me five tries)
cleaning up the aftermath of a garage sale
trying to get all the laundry done before leaving for vacation
dropping the dogs off at the doggie spa, for a day of pampering
(no, not really...they're at the local kennel getting a bath)


and all the normal everyday things
most families do during the week...

and so we're taking a little vacation, a little break, a little siesta...

We'll see you in about a week...
so in the mean time...
Have a blessed Easter!


But on the first day of the week, at early dawn,
they went to the tomb, taking the spices they had prepared.

And they found the stone rolled away from the tomb,
but when they went in they did not find
the body of the Lord Jesus.


While they were perplexed about this, behold,
two men stood by them in dazzling apparel.

And as they were frightened and bowed their faces to the ground
the men said to them,
"Why do you seek the living among the dead?

He is not here, but has risen.

Remember how he told you,

while he was still in Galilee,


that the Son of Man must be delivered
into the hands of sinful men
and be crucified
and on the third day rise."

And they remembered his words,
and returning from the tomb they told
all these things to the eleven and to all the rest.

Now it was Mary Magdalene and Joanna
and Mary the mother of James
and the other women with them

who told these things to the apostles,

but these words seemed to them an idle tale,
and they did not believe them.

But Peter rose and ran to the tomb;
stooping and looking in,
he saw the linen cloths by themselves;

and he went home
marveling at what had happened.


Luke 24:1-12 ESV
