"He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm,
and carry them close to his heart, and shall gently lead those that are with young." Isaiah 40:11

Easter Monday Faith


Do not abandon yourselves to despair
We are the Easter people and hallelujah is our song!’
~ John Paul II

Sun’s rising after Resurrection Sunday on a Monday world where everything’s changed…

Easter Monday faith believes that in impossible darks, impossible light sparks.
Easter Monday faith believes that the tombs places of our life, are but womb places for new life.
Easter Monday faith believes that Christ tenderly takes our doubts — and says touch my scars…
This faith believes in stones that roll, in grave clothes that fall, in an Easter people who sing hard hallelujahs … because we believe in resurrections always coming.

I have caught up on your last few posts. Not much time passes where we are thinking and praying for you. It's healing to just pour yourself out, but we grieve because of the things you must carry.

This post is full of hope that God has indeed given us new life that we can proclaim every day.

And thanks for those pictures. Love that Ethan and Abigail need to wear sunglasses out for supper!

Much love and prayers for you.

I meant to say not much time passes where we aren't thinking of you....

Didn't want to think that we never think of you. !!
