I have news. Do I whisper it in adoration? Or do I shout it in exultation? Here it is: Jesus lives! JESUS LIVES! He’s been set free. Jesus— free from the grip of the grave. Free even from the grasp of my arms! He was mine for a season, but he was on earth for a reason. The reason? The cross and the grave! Death and Resurrection.

As my son, he died, he succumbed to death; as God’s son, he rose to life.
As my son he came as a baby; as God’s son, he will return as King.
As my son he rode a common donkey; as God’s son, he will ride a white stallion.
As my son, he fed five thousand; as God’s son he is bread for all.
As my son, he drank water from a well; as God’s son, he is Living Water.
As my son, he was under the law; as God’s son, he was fulfillment of the law.
As my son, he celebrated the Passover; as God’s son, he became the Passover.

Jesus, my son, is no longer bound by a body, He has been set free, and as he is so can I be! Jesus, my Lord, and my God. I am highly favored and honored to be your servant. May it be to me as thou wilt.


Oneta’s note:  And I rejoice that “as he is, so we shall be” – Alive, alive, alive forevermore.

About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...

    Thank you for uniting us all in this beautiful meditation from the heart of a mother. What a beautiful example it is for all of us who have been given the gift of motherhood. Hugs & Blessings to you my sister-in-Christ. He is Risen! He is Risen, indeed!

    • oneta hayes says:

      Yes, He is Risen. And tomorrow when many who rejoiced in him today will be on about their routine tomorrow. He will still be risen but so many do not acknowledge him in their routine. So sad. He will sill be Jesus, thankfully. Thanks for you comments on this series, Dawn Marie. I value your input. Good night, dear.

    I loved your posts on Mary’s soliloquy – especially 3 and 4.
    Thank you for sharing these.
    Hallelujah! He’s alive.

    • oneta hayes says:

      Yes, three and four are the ones we have the Bible account in detail. Easier to be sure of. I thank you for reading and commenting. I join in your praises. He is worthy of all.

    What a lovely final soliloquy from Mary. You have united all mother’s hearts in the Season and helped us all rejoice. Christ is Risen! He is Risen indeed! The Hope of all believers. Fresh courage to stand in the days in which we live.

    • oneta hayes says:

      Thank you, Faye. We can value the times that bring us to acknowledge Him and recognize our dependence on him. May this Season’s celebration remain with you. It is evident by knowing you that you are a daily disciple. Good.
