Easter - Luke 24
Some dark sad days have come and gone
days when I didn’t think I could carry on.
He died you see on a wooden tree
I didn’t think that was how it was going to be.
On Sunday I had a task to do
and taking spices we set off us two
to see that the body was treated just right
but on reaching the tomb we got such a fright!
The stone that was large had been rolled away
and men in clothing that gleamed spoke, and did say:
“Why do you look for the living among the dead?”
For a moment I thought I’d gone daft in the head.
“He is not here He has risen just as He said He would do
don’t you recall him saying all this to you?”
My memory became clear, he did say he would
and I turned and I ran as fast as I could.
Reaching the house we told the disciples gathered there,
it’s nonsense said some but Peter ran off like a hare
and checked in the tomb and saw Jesus body was gone
and thought to himself what on earth has gone on?
Do you believe what I’m saying there is still more
In the hours that followed Jesus all of us saw
he gave us a mission to tell others His news
and I’m hoping to follow Him is what you will choose.
I found the following verse of a hymn which I thought was very apt for this most unusual Easter time.
Jesus lives! Our hearts know well,
Nought from us His love shall sever,
Life, nor death, nor powers of hell,
Tear us from His keeping ever.
How great to know that though we may be physically separated from our church family for now , even the corona virus can’t separate us from our Saviour’s love!
Isaiah 26;3-4 are comforting verses too I find.

In the midst of these times of confusion and anxiety we have been sitting in the garden reading and reflecting. Enjoying the sunshine, watching the robin on the feeder less than two feet away. The cherry tree is starting to bloom. Noticing other signs of new life and breathing in peace; the peace of God. Resting in his presence and becoming more human. We are called to be human beings and not human doings. We are not judged on our productive abilities to make or do and to be better than someone else. We are called to remember that he says' "be still and know that I am God". In these anxious times take time to be still seeking nothing but the face of God. Be blessed and be safe. Richard and Fran. ❤️��
