As any one who has followed, or even visited, this blog before probably knows there has been a long break between. That should show it has been a busy year for the primary blogger here. Lots of family stuff – a few major surgeries for my wife – lots of work stuff, the death of a high school friend (age 40) after a 2 year cancer battle, a few scares with older parents medical stuff, in law and nephew / niece stuff, and numerous other things.
All of that to say this, there is nothing more important then what we celebrate this weekend – death and resurrection of Christ. That single event is the most important three days in the history of man. Thousands of years of history before that weekend, thousands of years since, nothing has cut through time and history like the child of God, born to a virgin from Bethlehem, who living 33 years, preached 2 years of those, and died for the sins of ALL before rising three days later to reign forever. He has risen, He is alive, He has never forgotten or left those that are His. He paid the ultimate price and nothing in life you do can pay Him back for that, nor nothing you can do make Him love you less (or more) then He did on that hill – the place of the skulls – outside Jerusalem.
This week don’t rejoice in what you have (or don’t have), who is elected to any office, what job you have (don’t have), want or desire, but rejoice in Christ the son, God the Father, and the Holy Spirit for they are worthy of praise, honor and worship AMEN!!
