Good Morning on this Good Friday, Dear Friends and Prayer Partners! This is the day that the Lord has made and we will rejoice and be glad in it! I am running late on this beautiful morning, so I will just send on the scripture about the happenings after Jesus crucifixion and death.
From the Promise Bible NLT:
But very early on Sunday morning, the women came to the tomb,
taking the spices they had prepared. They found that the stone
covering the entrance had been rolled aside. So they went in, but
they couldn't find the body of the Lord Jesus. They were puzzled,
trying to think what could have happened to it. Suddenly, two men
appeared to them,clothed in dazzling robes. The women were
terrified and bowed low before them. Then the men asked, "Why
are you looking in a tomb for someone who is alive? He isn't here!
He has risen from the dead! Don't you remember what he told you
back in Galilee, that the Son of Man must be betrayed into the hands
of sinful men and be crucified, and that he would rise again the third day!"
Then they remembered that he had said this, so they rushed back to
tell his eleven disciples---and everyone else---what had happened.
The women who went to the tomb were Mary Magdalene, Joanna,
Mary the mother of James, and several others. They told the apostles
what had happened, but the story sounded like nonsense, so they
didn't believe it. However, Peter ran to the tomb to look. Stooping,
he peered in and saw the empty linen wrappings, then he went home
again, wondering what had happened.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving,
joy and love!
Love and hugs,
