A psalm for Easter...

Let’s celebrate Easter
with the rite
of laughter.
Christ died and rose
and lives.
Laugh like a woman
who holds her first baby.
Our enemy death
will soon be destroyed...

Laugh like a man
who finds he doesn’t have cancer
or does but now there’s a cure.
Christ opened wide the door of heaven.
Laugh like children
at Disneyland’s gates.
This world is owned by God
and He’ll return to rule.
Laugh like a man
who walks away uninjured
from a wreck
in which his car was totaled.
Laugh
as if all the people in the whole world
were invited to a picnic
and then invite them.

-Joe Bayly (from Psalms of My Life)

Dear Tim,

Thanks for this, and for your preaching of the Word today.

Χρίστος ἀνέστη! Ἀληθῶς ἀνέστη!

(This remains the greeting in Greece on Easter, even among those who are mostly irreligious.)

My family had a blessed time today.

Love,

Josh
