Christ’s Resurrection lives on… Mark 16 New International Version (NIV) Jesus Has Risen 1 When the Sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices so that they might go to anoint Jesus’ body. 2 Very early on the first day of the week, just after sunrise, they were on their way to the tomb 3 and they asked each other, “Who will roll the stone away from the entrance of the tomb?” 4 But when they looked up, they saw that the stone, which was very large, had been rolled away. 5 As...

My Thankfuls begin at the foot of the Cross…  The root of all my thankfuls…  the ground from which they rise and and birth life.  This.  My list?  There wouldn’t be any to add if it were not based on this truth.  My truth.  My faith.  My Savior.  On this Holy day, I will honor my God, and share His Glory.  I soak in the brutal day and bathe myself in His Presence…  His sacrifice… His Resurrection…His Providence.  My greatest thankful begins at the foot of the cross.   Shall we go there? Mark 15 New International...

Stress does that. My prayers have resorted to sighs, gasps, groans, and abbreviated hiccups...
