I can't help but to reflect on my recent trip to the Holy Land when I think of today. I mean, I actually walked the Via Delarosa. I saw the tomb. However, even as I think on it my heart grows overwhelmed with love and compassion, an unexplainable amount of gratitude and well, frankly, feelings that no word can describe. Have you seen Mel Gibson's the Passion of the Christ? If not, do. Don't dwell on the person who funded and made it, focus on the story it portrays. All too often we dwell on the wrong thing. We keep focused on the wrong perspective. Just like Mary Magdalene all those years ago when she went to the tomb to mourn Jesus and she mistook the risen Savior for a gardener and it was only when Jesus called her name that she saw that it was him. (John 20:10-16)
I too got to look into an empty tomb. I walked a path that millions travel down a year only because one man gave His life for mine and yours. How can I ever thank Him enough? How? Anyway, I hope that you and yours had a blessed Easter and were able to look past the commercialism, to the real reason for the season.
Below are some photos of the girls from today.
