Easter is a special time of the year. Spring has sprung, school is winding down, and summer is around the corner. Here in College Station, Texas, the wild flowers paint both sides of the highway and are a constant reminder of the God's beauty, power, and grace.
Each Easter, I am reminded of the interaction between the angels at Christ's tomb and his disciples...
And as they were afraid, and bowed down their faces to the earth, they said unto them, Why seek ye the living among the dead?
He is not here, but is risen: remember how he spake unto you when he was yet in Galilee, Saying, The Son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again.
And they remembered his words, And returned from the sepulchre, and told all these things unto the eleven, and to all the rest.I hope that we will always remember His words and seek Him in every area of our lives. Each of these unique images of Christ can remind us of different ways He blessed and healed and lifted everyone around Him. As you look at these images, I hope you will feel the peace and hope that come from knowing His tomb was empty, and Jesus Christ lives again today. I testify that He lives!
