It's Easter Monday… Depending on your own personal perspective, please select from the following scenarios to see where yours fits in…
"Honey, what happened to the 30 bags of candy? I could've sworn I had them sitting right over…. Omigosh…"
"Can you believe all of these visitors??!!! They actually think they can just waltz in here and camp wherever…"
"Wow… and I thought we had leftovers from Christmas!!..."
"Hey… that church wasn't sooo bad… maybe we might want to think about going there again. They seemed really friendly and sincere, not a bunch of huffy-puffy stuffed shirts types…"
"…hmmm… yep, it's a tad bit packed - I'm happy that they're making an effort to come today, and hopefully again at Christmas. At least they are coming. Perhaps maybe they'll catch on that this isn't such a hard thing to do after all…"
For sure, those are definitely some of the things we may be pondering. If you watched the news on Good Friday, you may have heard of a plane crash here in Virginia Beach. The simple truth of not one person was killed - I'm not going to mince words here - this was most definitely a miracle that demonstrates God's own will and timing. There is no way you can logically explain away how many different things came to play - from people not being where they normally would have been… let alone the physics involved in slamming 20 tons (that's 40,000 pounds) of very expensive metal ($66.9million) in a 56'x40' package with the aerodynamic glide qualities at zero forward thrust of your average boulder into an apartment complex? I don't care how good your math is, even if Mr. Spock himself taught you everything you know about physics, there is no denying the fact that everyone involved in what occurred on Friday, is still here to talk about it today. Thank God for that!!
To emphasize this perception, I am using a sunrise I took a couple of years ago… He is Risen Indeed!!
Have a great week!!
