Hope Springs Forth!
The hope of Easter is not to leave you mourning for long. There was a miracle morning that came three days after the curse of the cross. It's the surprise you weren't expecting but the answer you needed. It's the light that shines so bright into your darkest days.
Easter is when sorrow is interrupted with exuberant joy. This is the rest of the story of Easter.
by Evangeline B. White
The day started somber on the way to the tomb.
Spices in hand, grieving hearts, a sense of doom.
The earth shook suddenly, a violent quake.
An angel came down and some noise he did make.
The guards were first to see this marvelous sight.
As the stone was rolled away by the angel's might.
Like dead men the guards froze and fell.
Then scurried to the priests, their story to tell.
The women went in the tomb to see,
Their Savior called Jesus from Galilee.
His body was gone. The tomb empty.
Two angels appeared and said,
"He is risen from the dead!"
In wonder the women went out to tell the men,
What they heard, saw, and where they had been.
In amazement Peter and John ran ahead.
To see if it was just as the women had said.
Inside the tomb only linen clothes lay.
Folded and neat; then the men went away.
Jesus appeared to the women with greetings,
Then along the road, and in the midst of a meeting.
Jesus is alive and holds in His hand,
Keys to death and hell, under His command.
Good news to all, to all who will hear!
The Savior has risen, no need to fear!
Respond to His knock and answer His call.
His blood paid the price once and for all.
