“I am the resurrection and the Life”

A blessed Easter to you, dear Reader.  Our Brother, dearest Friend, and Savior Jesus has conquered death  The Father’s love is lavished upon His kids – we are free, indeed!
Christ Jesus has won new life for us!  Enjoy this Resurrection day and spread the most wonderful news ever!  The contrast between these two paintings from William Blake (1757–1827) give me cause for reflection,  contemplation and then, jubilation!  Notice how the first piece looks like the angels guarding the Ark of the Covenant.

“Even now, declares the LORD, return to me with all your heart, with fasting and weeping and mourning. Rend your heart and not your garments. Return to the LORD your God, for he is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and abounding in love, and he relents from sending calamity.” Joel 2:12-13
