Happy Resurrection Sunday!
The stone was rolled away,
the tomb was empty,
and He is risen!
Our sin separates us from God,
but Jesus bridged the gap between God and man!
Now upon the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they came unto the sepulchre, bringing the spices which they had prepared, and certain others with them.
And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulchre.
And they entered in, and found not the body of the Lord Jesus.
And it came to pass, as they were much perplexed thereabout, behold, two men stood by them in shining garments:
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.

Our Barred Owl has made several appearance in the past week. This beautiful bird hangs out on tree branches near our house - seemingly indifferent to everything happening around it. We've seen him (or her) sit there for up to 2 hours in the early evening - rarely moving - just the occasional turn of the head. Such a patient creature!
For my Palm Sunday verses, I chose these out of Matthew 20. Jesus once again foretold His disciples of His death and resurrection as they were about to travel to Jerusalem together for the last time. He told them exactly what was about to happen. Could He have said it any more clearly? It was common knowledge that Jesus had made these claims, hence the guards placed at the tomb. Yet, His disciples were still surprised when His tomb was empty!
All is well in the Keweenaw.
