HE IS RISEN INDEED.
This greeting and response was made very precious to me through the reading of Georgie Vins' book, Let the Waters Roar. The book describes the events of persecution in the Soviet Union involving several different people of whom Pastor Vins was acquainted. Powerful book.
It is such a blessing when your children think upon heavenly things. And even more so when they write about it. Yesterday I received the following in an email from my twelve year old daughter. She had some thoughts about Easter and expressed them in the following poem. I think of it as kind of an EASTER-RAP song.
All the eggs in the world
won't speak the truth,
or have the same affection.
But the joy from my heart says to tell of the affection
of the my lord Jesus.
He sees us,
and finally is with us.
So next time when you see an egg on Easter
remember it's the Resurrection it's about
not the egg of affection. Don't shout!
