The angel spoke to the women: “There is nothing to fear here. I know you’re looking for Jesus, the One they nailed to the cross. He is not here. He was raised, just as he said. Come and look at the place where he was placed. Matthew 28:5-6
Flora and Brandt like to run and play.
They jump and flip in the sun all day.
When it rains they have indoor fun
While they wait for the sunshine to come.
Sometimes they watch movies while Mom cooks.
Other times they read books.
Today they decided to write a play
In celebration of Resurrection Day.
They created a scene with the two Mary’s at the grave
And angels telling them to be brave.
“Come see the place where He lay.”
But Jesus had risen that day.
The angels told them to spread the news
Jesus was alive and would meet them soon.
Matthew 28 tells the story of two friends named Mary who were very sad about what happened to Jesus. They went to visit the place where Jesus was buried, but He was not there when they arrived. There were angels at the grave waiting to tell them the good news Jesus was alive.
Jesus is still alive today. He lives in you and me.
How do you celebrate Resurrection Day?
