So That . . .

Did you ever play the game “Follow the Leader”?  Whomever was the “leader” would do something and you had to follow them and do exactly what they did.  Or what about a game of “Horse” on the basketball court?  The first one with the basketball shoots a shot of their choosing and if they make the basket then you have to shoot exactly the same shot.  If you make it then they have the choice to shoot another shot of their choosing but if you don’t make it you get a letter, starting with “H” and each missed shot adds another letter until whomever is the first to spell out the word “Horse” is the loser.  The object of both of the games is to do what the person in front of you does pretty much “in the same way.”



Everyone is looking for some kind of hope.  You don’t have to read long or listen long when it involves today’s news and latest happenings.  There is a hopeless feel in so very much that is going on – a hopelessness that is overwhelming.  People are doing things that we never thought we would see happen because there is no hope.  Just yesterday, April 18, 2017, two very prominent men in the news are believed to have committed suicide.  Steven Stephens, the man who police believe targeted a random man, shot and killed him and then posted the video of that killing on FaceBook took his own life as police were getting close to capturing him.  Another man, Aaron Hernandez, a former professional football player who was on trial for the murder of one man and charges in the murder of at least two others, killed himself in prison.  Also yesterday a gunman in Fresno CA killed 3 men, randomly, in what is being called a hate crime.  Then, on what I would call the ridiculous side of the news, a baseball umpire made an admittedly horrible call.  But the backlash and outcry over this mistake is out of control. This is just a game; the man made a mistake, sadly, and people are doing everything but calling for his head!  Admittedly, it was a horrible call, but THIS IS JUST A GAME!  Finally, a good friend of ours was just diagnosed with a form of Leukemia, cancer.  And he is just one of multiplied thousands, upon thousands, upon thousands.  Hopelessness?  


When the Unexpected Happens

“After the Sabbath, at dawn on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to look at the tomb”  Matthew 28:1.  “When the Sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James and Salome bought spices so that they might go to anoint Jesus’ body” Mark 16:1.  “On the first day of the week, very early in the morning, the women took the spices they had prepared and went to the tomb” Luke 24:1.  “Early on the first day of the week, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene went to the tomb and saw that the stone had been removed from the entrance” John 20:1.  Each one of the four Gospel accounts have the story.  It was important to each one of them that they let us know that the women, Mary Magdalene, another Mary and others as well were the first ones to go to the tomb.  They of course were expecting to find the body of Jesus and properly prepare it for burial.  There had not been the time before the Sabbath began after the crucifixion to properly prepare the body so they were going to finish the task now.  But, the unexpected happened and it changed everything!
