Good Morning

Matthew 27:57-61
When the even was come,
there came a rich man of Arimathaea,
named Joseph,
who also himself was Jesus’ disciple:
He went to Pilate,
and begged the body of Jesus.
Then Pilate commanded the body to be delivered.
And when Joseph had taken the body,
he wrapped it in a clean linen cloth,
And laid it in his own new tomb,
which he had hewn out in the rock:
and he rolled a great stone to the door of the sepulchre,
and departed.
And there was Mary Magdalene,
and the other Mary,
sitting over against the sepulchre.

Were they . . .
in shock
trying to hold on to hope
like Mary and Martha sure Jesus would ‘rise again in the resurrection at the last day’ (John 11:24)

Jesus knew all about those feelings and fears,
remember He wept with the grieving.

Have compassion with the grieving  . . .Today
With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie
