A New Day Dawns

Happy Easter! Once and for all time, we know that what looks like the end is not the end.  Jesus shows us that God’s love goes beyond any boundary we can ever set, even beyond death.  Now is the time to celebrate that.  Every day is the day to celebrate a love so profound that heavy burdens cannot stop it from rising, so profound that the grave cannot contain it.

No matter how loudly the world might tell us, not matter how much we might believe that we live in a time of despair, we can still open our eyes to the light that shines through and let the good news of Easter tell us there is more to the story.  Hope lives – and God’s love abounds!

May we each celebrate the Easter good news breaking into the world again and for all time!

Prayer: Thank you Lord, for Easter!  Thank you that what looks like the end is not the end. Amen

Reflection Questions:

  1. Where do you need the good news of Easter to break into your life?
  2. Where does the world need the good news of Easter to transform it?
  3. How can you say yes to Easter’s good news?
