He is Risen!  He is Risen, Indeed!!

                This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it!  Let us rejoice in a spectacularly beautiful spring day, and let us be glad that there are more days like this to come!  Maybe, hopefully, possibly we’ve finally turned the corner to springtime in Presque Isle County, and we can be about the business of getting our gardens and yards in shape for warm weather and time in the great outdoors – without the need for overcoats and boots…

                Glorious days like today fill us with hope for tomorrow and joy for today; days like this makes us feel better about life, even if we’re going through a bumpy patch.  At the same time, some of us might feel like we don’t deserve to feel good on a marvelous day, that somehow we haven’t earned the privilege of contentment (let alone happiness).  Let us be perfectly clear; you deserve beautiful, sun-filled days!  You deserve joy, happiness, and feelings of contentment because you are God’s beloved child!  Your worthiness for good feelings is not determined by how much money you have, how many achievements are on your resume, how many accolades have come your way throughout your lifetime.  You are worthy of all good things because you breathe.  No matter how thorny the path, God wants only good things for you, and you are absolutely worthy of all the good God wishes for you!

                We can’t let this week go by without making note of Mother’s Day this coming Sunday.  Established in 1914 in the United States by President Woodrow Wilson as a national observance of the critical role played in our lives by mothers, our understanding of the day has expanded to include all women who play a role in nurturing us through our lives.  Please join us in honoring mothers (and those who fill that role), both those living and those who have entered the Church Triumphant, with a phone call, card, or prayer.
