Resurrection Day

Dogwood Shadows

'Then the disciples went back to their homes. But Mary stood weeping outside the tomb, and as she wept she stooped to look into the tomb.'
John 20:10,11

     Easter morning, early. I am sitting on the deck, enjoying the shade of trees I did not plant and songs from birds I do not feed. Well, sometimes I feed them. Good Friday's rain released the last Dogwood petals. So, I gather a few and bring them inside. Hanging on the hutch door, a small sign catches my eye. It reads- believe

     I wonder, what was Mary thinking as she stooped to look into the tomb that morning?

     I am grateful for eyesight, but I know I can't always trust it. My eyes see one week of gas in the car and two weeks until payday. Fear is a hard taskmaster.  

     The testimony of Easter-
with God all things are possible.

  1. I will pray that God meets all your needs and stretches the gas in your car until the next paycheck!

    1. Thank you! I am a firm believer in the power of prayer.

  2. Not wanting to be simplistic, but, your pictures are worth a thousand words.

  3. So, did you run out of gas? Have to stay home? Catch a ride with a friend? Cycle to work?

    1. Like the widow's oil, it kept going... until payday. Praise God!
