"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-four years, this is one of my all time favorites, so about every three to four years... I bring it back for a repeat! Not only do I find the story extremely 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 in an upset tone. "He's smiling! Why would He be smiling 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 Lenten season, as we follow Jesus' journey to the cross, may your heart be touched by the realization of how much He truly loves you.

Blessings on your Resurrection Celebration! He is risen indeed!

Happy Easter,
Mrs. Palka
