Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a blessed weekend! I was able to spend time with friends this weekend. We went to a large bazaar. The traffic on the way down was (not surprisingly) super heavy, which is always draining for old people (like me!), but we had plenty of time to chat and catch up! Lots of quality car time:) The rains held off and it was a very nice day. My brother was also blessed to have sunny skies for a fundraiser he participated in which included a 35-mile bike ride! Can you tell which of us is the more “fit” one??
The week ahead includes some scripture assembly this morning, an afternoon with friends later in the week, and my son’s birthday – tomorrow! WooHoo! I hope you will come back on Wednesday. I am hoping to do have a “flashback” post with a story or two about my boy:)
Of course, this week also leads us to Easter! Here’s to turning our eyes toward the empty tomb…and all that the resurrection truly means for us as Christians!! Enjoy this passage from Luke’s account in Luke 24:1-6 (emphasis mine).
Now upon the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they came unto the sepulchre, bringing the spices which they had prepared, and certain others with them. And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulchre. And they entered in, and found not the body of the Lord Jesus. And it came to pass, as they were much perplexed thereabout, behold, two men stood by them in shining garments, And as they were afraid, and bowed down their faces to the earth, they said unto them, Why seek ye the living among the dead? He is not here, but is risen: remember how he spake unto you when he was yet in Galilee,”
