He is Risen!

The cemetery will be closed for a few weeks because of the tornado damage. This is hard for us when we want that time to remember her in quiet with God where her body lies. I had bought a flag for her area, and since I couldn't put it at her grave nor could we take her flowers, we put it outside our door along with a potted plant to remember that she is with Jesus on this day! Of course the flowers and the pot are pink!

Easter is the day that we get to celebrate that Jesus is Risen, and because of this we will be reunited with Magdalena one day in heaven praising God forever! These verses are especially special to us because the first person who saw Jesus after being raised was Magdalene (Magdalena is Spanish for Magdalene.).

John 20:11 - 18

11 But Mary stood weeping outside the tomb, and as she wept she stooped to look into the tomb. 12 And she saw two angels in white, sitting where the body of Jesus had lain, one at the head and one at the feet. 13 They said to her, “Woman, why are you weeping?” She said to them, “They have taken away my Lord, and I do not know where they have laid him.” 14 Having said this, she turned around and saw Jesus standing, but she did not know that it was Jesus. 15 Jesus said to her, “Woman, why are you weeping? Whom are you seeking?” Supposing him to be the gardener, she said to him, “Sir, if you have carried him away, tell me where you have laid him, and I will take him away.” 16 Jesus said to her, “Mary.” She turned and said to him in Aramaic, “Rabboni!” (which means Teacher). 17 Jesus said to her, “Do not cling to me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father; but go to my brothers and say to them, ‘I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.’” 18 Mary Magdalene went and announced to the disciples, “I have seen the Lord”—and that he had said these things to her.
