This is a first for me, posting via mobile phone. It’s unwieldy and difficult and frustrating but I feel the words bursting forth like Jesus from the tomb. Some things are just too good not to share. You see, it’s all about the Hope. In light of what we are all seeing and hearing on the news, it’s easy to forget what this day really means. People are working and the TV is blaring and yet stop I must, even if it’s only a minute or two.
Here’s the important part. In all of our “Forgive me Father for I have sinned moments” there is a beacon on the hill of Golgotha today. On that day the 6 inch curtain in the Temple was torn, rent in two for you and me, and the earth shook.
The earth still shakes today, does it not? I just left the driveway of an ole friend, and as I padded off light on my feet smiling and happy for having hugged he and his wife a second thought hit me. Why did I not share Jesus? When we talked of his sister who is in Heaven today, whom we both miss, why did I not share the hope of the Resurrection?
Then I thought, maybe my smile and hug was enough. Just maybe. I don’t know where he stands on faith or if he has any at all, but I do know that Jesus loves us both.
And maybe the best thing we can do today is show love in a million little ways. By doing that, we can say our thank you to Jesus.
Peace be with you all today folks. I hope you find some quiet moments or just stand in the midst of all the turmoil and be a bringer of peace and grace.
Today, He gave us the victory!
