He is Risen - Just as He Said

"He is not here; He has risen, just as He said"
Matthew 28:6
A single cross stands atop the mountain behind our little cottage. A daily reminder to me of my Lord's sacrifice. Today I look at the cross and say to myself, "The cross is vacant. He's not there. And He's not in the tomb.
The grave couldn't hold Him. 
He is risen, just as He said."
For some people today may just be a Sunday like any other Sunday.  A day like any other day. But not for me, nor for others who have received Jesus Christ as their Savior. Today is Resurrection Sunday.  A day we set aside to honor Jesus' sacrifice and celebrate His miraculous resurrection.
He is risen, just as He said.

Jesus is risen.  He lives. He lives in the hearts of those who have placed their trust in Him and His work on the cross. To all who have said, "Yes, Lord, You are the perfect sacrifice for my sins. The only sacrifice acceptable to a holy God. Here's my heart. Take it and make it Your home."


A vacant cross.

An empty tomb.
A full heart.
Hallelujah! He has risen, just as He said.

Dawn's Light

Dawn tiptoed over the mountain and peaked through the ponderosas this morning.
I stepped outside the back door and focused my lens on her light.
She allowed me one photograph.
Then, like a camera shy child, she ran away.
“Have you ever given orders to the morning,
    or shown the dawn its place,"
Job 38:12
