Easter Sunday 2012 - 1e Paasdag 2012

1 On the first day of the week, very early in the morning, the women took the spices they had prepared and went to the tomb.

2 They found the stone rolled away from the tomb,

3 but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus.

4 While they were wondering about this, suddenly two men in clothes that gleamed like lightning stood beside them.

5 In their fright the women bowed down with their faces to the ground, but the men said to them, “Why do you look for the living among the dead?

6 He is not here; he has risen! Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee:

7 ‘The Son of Man must be delivered over to the hands of sinners, be crucified and on the third day be raised again.’

8 Then they remembered his words.

(Luke 24: 1-8)

As, or after, you read the resurrection story in Luke 24, you might want to listen to this:

Some of you might be wondering what the rest of the subject line means. Literally translated from Dutch it means the 1st day of Easter (Easter is celebrated over 2 days). As a tribute to my Dutch heritage, I added a link to my favourite Dutch Easter hymn:

I wish each of you a blessed Easter or Zalig Pasen.

Rick your photo is stunning, I love the font for your word choice and what a beautiful post for Easter. I only wish I could open up the links, I don't open a single thing due to the cost of data here... I'm being a 'good' student in that sense, now to really get to my studies! lol

I hope you had a wonderful Easter with your family near by, take care and God bless.

Cheers... from the land down under.
