I was touch by Marta's post yesterday. This is Easter week where we walk through the suffering, death and Resurrection of Christ. Years ago I heard a song on the radio by Harvest entitled Because I Am where Mary meets Christ on the road and tells him if he'd hurried her brother, Lazarus, wouldn't be dead. Christ responds I am the Resurrection, I am the Life, and he who believes in me, though dead shall not die. Because I am.
When I first heard those words, I got chill bumps. To this day, I can't listen to that song without it touching my heart. It is a song of hope.
As I see my garden, the life coming back to it, that also speaks to my of life and this Easter week.
