To walk where Jesus walked, where he lay, and rose again in victory

I am once again reminded of the desire I have to visit Isreal. I know that many times I have read books, watched DVD's and wondered what it would be like to actually be there. I know of friends that have gone and they have told me what a wonderful experience it was. So today I imagined walking, I read the scriptures of the days between Palm Sunday and the crucification and the day they rolled away the stone to reveal a risen saviour. If you are having a tough day, read these biblical accounts and you can be instantly transformed into a humble, thankful heap of tears of gladness. He is risen, He is alive, He lives in me. WOW how cool is that!


So here is my morning, I watched Hillsongs, Stronger, more than once I admit, I looked through pictures and I read and prayed my prayers of thanks for a gift so immense there is not a word in our language to describe it.



More pictures and a short video can be found at the website http://www.gardentomb.org/
Take a walk through and go in your mind, if you close your eyes after and mediate on the meaning of the week that we are in, pray a prayer of thanks, you can be whisked away in your heart to a place long ago. Travelling to see myself would be great but I am thankful for the internet and those pictures and informative sites that teach me about what it was like on that day. "Jesus conquered death and is now seated at the Father’s right hand, interceding for believers. He knows your name, where you are, and what you need and desire. The comfort of the empty tomb is that our Savior is alive and watching over us—just as He said (Heb. 7:25; 12:2)." CStanley
