He has risen!
This year I have been touched at how MJ and Lj have grasped the seriousness and the excitement of the resurrection story. A number of weeks ago when I read a kids version of the life of Christ to Lj she got upset when she realised that Jesus had been put on a cross and left to die...she couldn't understand why people would do it to him when all she knew was of Jesus the baby born in Bethlehem, Jesus the man who healed the blind, Jesus who said 'Let the little children come to me'. Thankfully I was able to keep reading to her and tell her how he didn't stay dead, but is alive just like he said he would and that His death was a necessity for us to have a relationship with God.
