Happy Easter week. This is a season when we celebrate new life, resurrection. Yet, you and I have experienced loss. How do we celebrate in the midst of loss? What does new life look like for us? These are good questions, ones shared by Jesus’ disciples and the women at the tomb. What will our new life look like? For one, it is new, different, and not at all what we had expected. New life is about continuing to live in the face of loss. It is having a hope that even after our great loss, we can go on again. Life will be forever changed, but there is still life. Take courage today. Honor both the life that was and the one that is still to come. God bless you with the hope of Resurrection today.
