He Is Not Here He Is Risen

My Blessings to each of you dear ladies that come and visit  my blog, we have a bond of fellowship online.
You all make this possible, I have many dear women online, and I thank God for each of you. I pray you have a wonderful Resurrection Day, have much love with church family, family and friends, God bless you.  

I was thinking about the various sounds I hear each morning when I step outside.
The birds chirping, the rooster up the road crowing, leaves being stirred by the squirrels and armadillos, so many sounds.

I often wonder what the sounds might have been on the day of Christ's Crucifixion.
I believe I can hear weeping, nails being hammered into the wood, and bodies of the three crosses. There was some shouting from men who were gambling and yelling over who would get Christ's robe as they threw the dice.
As the men sat in a circle around a fire, you could hear its crackling. A dog might of been barking, and maybe even a cat went howling through the city.
At Last, as Jesus gave up, and drew his last breath, you could hear him cry out, in a very loud voice, "Father Forgive them, they know not what they do!"
As Easter approaches let us all recall what happened  on the day Christ was crucified and then arouse three days later.
Were there sounds you could hear to associate you to that time in history?
Could you hear as well as see the stones being moved away from his grave? Could you hear Martha and Mary crying? How about Peter getting all upset over there being nothing in the tomb?
This special occasion has many sounds you didn't hear on any other day at that time of the season. As we get to Easter Sunrise Service, look into the sky as the sun begins to come over the trees. What do you hear? What do you see?
Again a very happy Easter to you, may the resurrection of Jesus be as real to you today and when you first heard  what he did for you. Now tell others, and be blessed.

Beautiful post, Barbara, Thank you, and I was very aware of sounds yesterday too
Love, Jan

I always imagine absolute silence when the sky turned black except for the cry of Jesus, before that I can imagine such a cacophony of noise.

Praise God for the cross and His resurrection!

I never thought of the crucifixion in this way...the sounds that were heard. I am sure it was not pleasant. Have a Blessed Easter Sunday♥

I love being up as dawn breaks. So many different sounds. Even the boisterous rooster sounds pretty good. So many birds calling and answering. Blessings tomorrow as we remember His resurrection -- for He is risen -- indeed!!!
