Today is it. The most joyous day for Christians, the day we celebrate His sacrifice, His resurrection, His infinite love for us.
Easter morning brings hope that was hard to imagine in the days that came before. Those days held shock, and torture, and death. An anguish that was deep and isolating. Questions that had no answers. Emptiness and sorrow that had not been felt before.
But then Easter DID come. The Lord did rise. Hope returned to the world, and life held meaning once again.
Was it a morning like this?
Did the grass sing? Did the earth rejoice to feel You again? Over and over like a trumpet underground, Did the earth seem to pound: “He is risen”? Over and over in a never ending round, “He is risen, alleluia, alleluia!” (Sandy Patty)
