Often times we are defined by the things that we have done and accomplished in our lifetime. That is the reason why we strive so hard to do the best with the time that we have. While there is absolutely nothing wrong with that, it is just too bad that with our pursuits we tend to forget to give thanks and glory to the big man upstairs who has done the absolute awesomest thing in His lifetime and beyond. Thank you Jesus for living and giving your life for us. You’re the first, the original and the ultimate rockstar!
I visited Walkway last night and it was such a meaningful experience. Each station brought chills down my spine but station 14 struck me the most. And this is what it says:
“Peter then saw the strips of linen lying there as well as the burial cloth that has been around Jesus’ head. The cloth was folded up by itself, separate from the linen.
During Jesus’ time, there was one way a carpenter lets a contractor know a job was finished. A signature if you will. When the final piece of job had been completed, the carpenter would typically fold a towel neatly in half and set it on the finished work and walk away. Whoever would arrive later to inspect the work would see the towel and understand its simple message.
The work is finished.
On the first easter, Peter crouched into an empty tomb. He saw only the linens that Jesus had left behind.
Imagine that a smile crossed Peter’s face as sorrow was replaced by Hope. He saw the wrap that had covered Jesus’ face. It had been folded in half and left neatly on the floor of the tomb. The carpenter had left behind a simple message.”
i saw Patty Laurel in the last booth selling souvenir shirts. being such a big fan, i was so mesmerized and told her that she’s so pretty. i bought a shirt and when she asked if i wanted to buy a CD too, i obliged. heck she could have even sold me a car and i would buy it too without me knowing it.
