Christ is Risen!

Luke 24:1-9

On the first day of the week, very early in the morning, the women took the spices they had prepared and went to the tomb.  They found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus.

While they were wondering about this, suddenly two men in clothes that gleamed like lightening stood beside them.

In their fright the women bowed down with their faces to the ground, but the men said to them, "Why do you look for the living among the dead?  He is not here; he has risen!  Remember how he told you, while he was still in Galilee:  'The Son of Man must be delivered over to the hands of sinners, be crucified and on the third day be raised again.'"

Then they remembered his words.  

When they came back from the tomb, they told all these things to the Eleven and to all the others.

Alleluia!  Alleluia!  Christ is risen!
The Lord is risen indeed!
Alleluia!  Alleluia!


May you and yours have a most blessed Easter!

  13. Alleluia! Alleluia! The Lord is truly Risen! Alleluia!

    I love how these words are exchanged Martha as we greet each other of Christ's resurrection :D

    I had to look at myself the way I say it LOL. Does it show in my face that Christ has really risen? Or do I continue to walk my way with a heavy heart?

    A BLESSED and HEARTFELT EASTER Martha to you and your family!
