After the Sabbath, at dawn on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to look at the tomb.

There was a violent earthquake, for an angel of the Lord came down from heaven and, going to the tomb, rolled back the stone and sat on it. His appearance was like lightning, and his clothes were white as snow. The guards were so afraid of him that they shook and became like dead men.

The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. Then go quickly and tell his disciples: ‘He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him.’ Now I have told you.”

So the women hurried away from the tomb, afraid yet filled with joy, and ran to tell his disciples. Suddenly Jesus met them. “Greetings,” he said. They came to him, clasped his feet and worshiped him. Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid. Go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee; there they will see me.”

~ Matthew 28:1-10


  1. This is the only place I could find to enter the contest? Happy (belated) Easter. I would like to win the $50 gift card because I will be a first time Homeschooler this coming fall. I am very excited and a tiny bit overwhelmed with all of the information I’m finding. Purchasing the things I will need to educate a 4th grader, 2 in kindergarten and 1 preschooler, is slightly overwhelming as well but I know God will provide. With that being said, the $50 would help purchase what looks like some pretty cool supplies. As a side note, thank you so much for your time in writing this blog. The information and material you have offered is so helpful. I need all the help I can get and I love to visit your blog! Thanks 🙂
