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.
Easter Lily- $3.99 Aldi
Pink tablecloth and praying hands table scarf- I got several years ago at a thrift store.
Candle- I used hot glue to wrapped a candle that I already had in green & white ribbon and lace on top edge.
Bird Vase- I got the vase for free at the Clothes Closet and attached a candle stick to the bottom with epoxy glue. I put moss in the bottom and added two decorative stones, a bird, feather, and flower. I just looked around for things I had and this is what I came up with.
