Well it's Easter weekend...and the children have all broken up from school. They're relieved - not sure if I am or not !?!
On Monday we will be scattering Karena's ashes.....but it's Easter time and that means it's resurrection time......
Of course, we live in the good of Jesus' resurrection every day of the year...in Luke's gospel (24:5-6) I have just read what happened when the women went to Jesus' tomb a couple of days after his crucifixion and burial ...they were asked "Why do you look for the living among the dead? He is NOT here; He HAS risen...."
When we scatter Karena's ashes on Monday I will read this passage from the bible and we will scatter them with some tears perhaps, but with the full and clear understanding that Karena is with the Risen King, the Lord of Glory, her Saviour. Wow !
For us as a family, this Easter we will stand in awe once again at the resurrection of Jesus - and this year it will have a whole new freshness and wonder.
The dead come alive in Christ....and Jesus is alive today - it's utterly life changing !
Have a great Easter ! x
