The sun will soon rise like Christ. The Christ has risen, just like he said he would!
The Easter Story has been passed down over 2,000 years now. It is a good one. The best one ever, in fact.
God creates man and becomes one Himself to show him the Way. He Teaches throughout his life here on earth but man has a hard time understanding how this could be. Some believe, others don't and crucify Him right here on earth.
He knows they are going to, he created them. He tells them he will be crucified and even his believers can't believe that until they see it. Still some don't believe. He goes through terrible persacution by the men He created, dies, is buried, descends to the Dead and rises again as the Living God.
He comes back for proof and still some of his believers don't believe. He walks with two of the on the way to Emmaus and they don't even know who He is until he breaks bread with them.
How many "doubting Thomas's" have you known?
Some men have worked 2,000 years to disprove this story. Still, they cannot. Yet they won't believe. In the mystery of life, it is pretty easy for me to believe this story. I am banking my future on it. What is the worst that can happen, that I am wrong? I will take that chance.
I get along with Believers a lot better, too. They are good people, the kind of people you want to be around. I will be around them today, good fun, Happy Easter!
This has been a revealing Lenten season for me, I hope it has been for you. I never dreamed I would be talking about these things when I started this on January 1. I thought I would be talking about my love of agriculture which I have most days.
But I mainly write what is on my mind and what I am going through each day. So it is right I be honest with you and share every thought I dare share.
The planting season is upon us here in southwest Ohio. Another great promise in the mystery of life. Lots of good stories will be made, some will be passed on, others forgotten. That goes right along with the Easter story.
Now that is a pretty good message!
