The sunflower is always bountiful and seeking the light.... Symbolically like our heart and souls, always seeking unity with the Light of God.
"I am the light the truth and the way".... John 14:6
I would imagine that Jesus’ followers, and even His enemies, didn’t get much sleep Friday and Saturday night. Hearts were heavy, weeping for the One they believed was going to rescue them from Roman oppression. But, Jesus was dead. Gone. Silent. Their doubts confirmed, He wasn’t the Son of God as He said.
Early on Sunday morning, as the new day was dawning,
Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went out to see the tomb. Suddenly there was a great earthquake, because an angel of the Lord came down from heaven and rolled aside the stone and sat on it.
Then the angel spoke to the women,
“Don’t be afraid!” he said. “I know you are looking for Jesus,
who was crucified. He isn’t here! He has been raised from the dead,
just as He said it would happen.”
In an instant, their frightened grief turned to complete joy! He is risen! And the women ran away to find the disciples to share this exciting news with them.
As they rushed to the disciples, Jesus met the women,
“Greetings!” He said.
And they ran to Him, held His feet, and worshiped Him.
Jesus rose from the dead and revealed Himself to many people before ascending to heaven to sit in the place of Honor at God’s right hand.
HE IS RISEN!
