It hit me anew on Easter Sunday. Jesus is alive! JESUS IS ALIVE! And my thoughts immediately turned to the reality that Jesus is still alive. Still alive today. And then a bit of a downer – why do I spend too much of my time as though He wasn’t? All those everyday happenings that I struggle with on my own. All those times when conversations take place without the enlightenment of the Easter Day dawn. All those occasions when the “news” stridently declares strife, conflicts, doom and gloom. Jesus please forgive us for our lack of belief, for the times when we shut You out.
