The Tomb was Empty
Mary wept. Seeking a corpse, she mistook Jesus for a common person. Many of us mistake Jesus as someone common, not the life-changing Son of God that He actually is. We all have things that we cry over, struggle with or feel stressed about. We may reach a deadlock, a dead-end, and feel as if there is no possible way out. Only when we reach the end of our fleshly strength will we be ready to listen to His voice. When you realize that you need God, need to know His resurrection power, be quiet, for you are likely to hear Him calling you. You can search for Him with all your might, but He can never be found in the strength of your flesh. He has changed! He has risen. He is known only in the Spirit now, and your flesh wars with the Spirit.

Christ “after the flesh” was crucified. Knowing Him in that way results in a corpse vainly searching for another corpse. Mary searched in her flesh and knew not the Resurrected Christ. When her tears were drained, and she was at the end of herself, she was ready to hear His voice. Are you still relying on your own strength and abilities? Are you seeking to know Jesus after the flesh? Give it up, lay aside who you think He is, humble yourself before Him, and ask to hear His voice. Only when you give up on the flesh is the Spirit ready to take over. And the Spirit delights in making Jesus Christ known to your heart!

2017 what!!?????

well  it has been an eventful two months and a half. My job has changed considerably and we have moved to a new house. It has taken me all of that time to reconstruct,rearrange and refill my life and energy. Now I have a cold! Honestly it has been rough but change is never easy for me. Especially as I have had more trips around the sun. Here are a few new pages from the journal that did get done in the midst of my whirlwind

Christmas Eve

Christmas Eve is even more special to me than Christmas day. It is when I reflect on all that makes  our cozy life so precious. My loving  hubby always lights all of the Christmas candles and the music reflects the gift of Christ, we make a call to the grands and watch them open one gift each...
such sweet treasures they are.
Later in the evening we take a short trip over to my best friends home full of laughter, joy and good food. When we get back home the gifts go under the tree and we settle in to reflect on the peace of the night. I end the evening with a reading from scripture and this year I added a new favorite Christmas story "The Journey " by Donna Van Liere. It is a narrative of what 
Christ's birth night may have actually been like. 
I am  Humbled by the facts surrounding the King of Kings birth and 
His amazing entrance in to my humanity. I say my humanity because it is messy, crazy far from perfect yet God came down in to it to give me a reason to continue on when the days are hard.
I need to hold Christmas in my heart all year and remember the
warm, grace filled joy of my Saviors love. Merry Christmas to all!
