Looking back two thousand years ago to the Hill of Golgatha ~~ we see women there. They are the last at the cross and the first at the tomb.
It’s a wonderful gift of life being born a girl, and grow to become a woman. To fall in love, get married and have babies. It’s such an amazing journey that we don’t really think about it. It just happens so naturally like river flowing. It’s lovely. A real deal and a half of becoming an amazing part of procreation. Being a mother is probably the most amazing thing to be — to give birth to another human being. We are so blessed to carry a child for nine months and then give birth to a baby. And the first question is – A chedil, ng sechal ng redil? There’s the word, chedil. Mother.
I wonder how the mother of Jesus stood there watching with the pain like a sword piercing through her heart on that Friday afternoon. The heart of a mother bleeding. It’s an amazing sacrifice that is beyond words. It was so I could know I’m loved and I can hope.
Max Lucado talked about the women finding the large stone moved from the entrance of the tomb. The Son of Man could have walked out of the tomb through the stone. He didn’t have to move the stone. But the angels moved the stone so the women can see that the tomb was empty.
Sunday is coming.
