Now on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene came to the tomb early, while it was yet dark, and saw the stone had been rolled away. John 10: 1.
Humankind is always marveling at something new, things we find compelling. It was Columbus, then the harnessing of the steam engine. More lately, its the computers, and every form of technology. Man has always reached beyond himself to some new frontier. But the truth is nothing has impacted human life like the Resurrection. We are Easter People, those who share the joy of the Risen Christ.

Life is filled with valleys. High moments never last. It's how we respond to the low moments that define our lives.
