On this glorious Easter Day , spend time in the garden if you can or at least ouside in the sunshine. Gardens and being a gardener are part of the Easter Story. Remember the Garden of Gethsemane, and when Mary found that Jesus was not in the tomb, she thought his voice was that of the gardener.
Jesus said, “Remember I am with you always to the end of the age”.
And that surely is what the Easter message is about. Jesus risen from the dead, alive and with us, here, now and forever.
The cross that we wear and the cross that he bore gives us the light to walk out into the world and proclaim him Lord, It takes away the power of darkness, it takes away the things that we do wrong and leads us to an eternal life.
It is a love proclaimed, God who sent his only Son to be with us to show his love for all his people.
And Jesus gives us forgiveness, he gives us love, he gives us a light to shine in the world.
The cross that we wear and the cross that he bore gives us the light to walk out into the world and proclaim him Lord,
And let us always remember he said,
I am here with you always, to the end of the age.
Happy Easter and Alleluia Christ is Risen.
