“I Have Seen the Lord.”

Thoughts of Mary Magdalene:

            I returned to the tomb. I couldn’t keep from crying. I wanted to know what the soldiers, or whoever took my Master’s body, did with it.

            After Peter and John departed, I sat at the entrance and sobbed all the harder. Then, I heard a voice ask me why I was crying and who I was looking for.

            I thought it was the gardener. I inquired about the Master’s body—where had they taken it? Then, I heard my name. I looked up and saw Jesus. No one knows the relief I felt. All I could do was call out his name, the name I thought of his as. “Rabboni!

            He talked to me. He asked me to deliver a message to the disciples. I departed to find the disciples to share the wondrous news, "I have seen the Lord!

            Mary went from somber sadness to ecstatic joy. Can we identify with her as we enter into the celebration of Jesus’ resurrection?




          
       I will be taking a short break from blogging. I will be back on April 24. Hubby and I are going to do something special while I am unplugged. In the meantime, I wish each of you a very Happy Easter.

  2. Thanks for sharing this wonderful story of Jesus' first appearance after his resurrection. I've always been thankful and felt it most significant that he appeared first to a woman.
    Have a lovely time on blog break!

    1. Jeanette: You and I think alike. I was taken by the fact that Jesus appeared to a woman several years ago. I occurred to me lately that He chose to appear to one who had been possessed b demons, not someone who had never experienced the down side of life. We had a nice time away. Pictures to come next week.
