This year our family celebrated Resurrection Sunday with the homegoing of one of our family members. This beloved person had a lengthy illness and seemed to be doing well until about a month ago.
Her health declined quickly. Instead of a big Easter dinner, we found ourselves accepting food from friends at the door.
Instead of a big Easter egg hunt, children in the family hunted eggs as they come to visit and say their goodbyes.
It was an Eastertime not like any we had experienced, but her homegoing at Easter was appropriate.
Due to that empty tomb, we know that Jesus Christ conquered death. And we can have forgiveness due to Him taking our sin on the cross, and conquering death.
Death will die, and we shall live eternally.
"But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name."
