HAPPY and BLESSED EASTER
"At daybreak on the first day of the week the women who had come from Galilee with Jesus took the spices they had prepared and went to the tomb. They found the stone rolled away from the tomb; but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus...
...Two men in dazzling white garments said, 'Why do you seek the living one among the dead? He is not here, but he has been raised'." John 24
