Happy Resurrection Day!


I've shared this poem I wrote several years ago before, but when I came across it the other day, I thought I'd share it again in case some of you missed it.  HE IS RISEN!  HE IS RISEN INDEED!
The air was crisp that morning
As the women made their way to His grave
Carrying spices to anoint His body
They were thinking of the past two days

As they approached the tomb
They saw the stone had been rolled away
Filled with fear and uncertainty
Not knowing whether to go or stay

Could it be, was He alive?
It seemed too good to be true
An angel appeared to remind them
Of what Jesus said He would do

Death would be defeated
He would arise on the third day
Sweet Rose of Sharon to bloom
With us He will always stay
