The Death

I've known a lot of dear people that have died. One of my earlier experiences with death was my older brother. He was murdered. I was 14 at the time and it made a huge impact on my young life. I don't know where he was spiritually when he died, but I can hope to see him again, in the Kingdom.
I've experienced other deaths as well. Spiritual death, relationship death, the death of hope, the death of a dream. It all hurts.
Tomorrow is Easter. It's all about life. It's about victory over death! Oh death, where is your sting? I sometimes wonder about all the thoughts that went through the followers of Jesus, when he died. The sheer agony that they felt and the sorrow. Why, did it have to happen, they must have asked.
Then, it was Easter morning. There was light in the tomb of death. The Father brought breath to the body of His Beloved Son, and freedom reigned for all of us. Grace became our companion, life eternal.
I am thankful for the joy of celebrating such glorious life. The life of my savior, and the life He has given me. This is good.
Thank you Jesus, for being alive. Thank you for the beauty of Easter. Say That Again, Beloved Savior, You have risen, Your breath is upon me breathing eternal life into my being. Praise to Your name.
