John 20:11-13 (MSG) But Mary stood outside the tomb weeping. As she wept, she knelt to look into the tomb and saw two angels sitting there, dressed in white, one at the head, the other at the foot of where Jesus’ body had been laid. They said to her, “Woman, why do you weep?”
Why do I weep?
Maybe because I am a woman? (LOL).
Because my heart is engaged.
I miss someone. And sometimes that someone is me.
My heart is drawn out to God.
My dreams are torn.
I feel relief.
But this weekend, I wept because I saw new life. I watched others as they probably felt all of these things while they heard about new beginnings that could spring from the God-shaped hole in each of their hearts. Not just a beginning ... a NEW beginning. Fresh. Clean. Beautiful. Worthy of tears.
