"Why do you look for the living among the dead? He is not here; He has risen!" Luke 24: 5 & 6
Of all of the newsletter articles that I have written over the past twenty-one years, this is one of my all time favorites. Not only do I find the story endearing, but I truly treasure the child-like faith that is expressed. I hope that the message that this young disciple shared touches your heart in the same way that it does mine each time I read this.
Many years ago, two of our Kindergarten students were admiring a new bulletin board that the Preschool teacher had recently displayed in the hallway when the following conversation was overheard:
"Look at Jesus!" stated the first child. "He's smiling! Why would He be smiling as He hung on the cross?"
The second child replied, "Well, of course He was smiling, He loved us so much that He was happy to die for our sins!"
This week, as we observe Holy Week, may your heart be touched by the realization of how much He truly loves you.
Blessings on your Resurrection Celebration! He is risen indeed!
