On Easter

100_1530On this day so many years ago, after witnessing the crucifixion of Christ, Mary Magdalene stood outside his tomb, and she wept. And then a man she at first failed to recognize spoke to her:

“Woman,” he said, “why are you crying? Who is it you are looking for?” Thinking he was the gardener, she said, “Sir, if you have carried him away, tell me where you have put him, and I will get him.”

Jesus said to her, “Mary.” She turned toward him and cried out in Aramaic, “Rabboni!” (which means Teacher). John 20: 15-16

Rejoice this Easter day, for he has risen.

As I gaze upon the sea!

All my dreams, come back to me.
