Happy Ēostre, the Lord is Risen

Happy "Ēostre" ... Where all is Metaphor. Ēostre is 'goddess of the dawn', designated the 'daughter of heaven' .... Mary Magdalene. On this dawn, this Spring day in April, we celebrate the rebirth of Jesus into his shiny new body of Light. Jesus who was placed into the ground, like a seed, into a tomb for 3 days and on the 3rd day is born again as from a womb, the tomb when the stone is rolled away. He is reborn as the Master Gardener, here to plant seeds of Light .... like colorful and shiney Easter eggs. Rejoice, Rejoice the Lord has come. And it is Mary Magdalen, Eostre, that discovers our Lord in the Garden, as the Gardener, our Lord and Maker of all... Father, Mother, Son and daughter. Rejoice. Amen.

Jesus Appears to Mary Magdalene - John 20:11-18

11 Now Mary stood outside the tomb crying. As she wept, she bent over to look into the tomb 12 and saw two angels in white, seated where Jesus’ body had been, one at the head and the other at the foot.
13 They asked her, “Woman, why are you crying?”
“They have taken my Lord away,” she said, “and I don’t know where they have put him.” 14 At this, she turned around and saw Jesus standing there, but she did not realize that it was Jesus.
15 He asked her, “Woman, why are you crying? Who is it you are looking for?”
Thinking he was the gardener, she said, “Sir, if you have carried him away, tell me where you have put him, and I will get him.”
16 Jesus said to her, “Mary.”
She turned toward him and cried out in Aramaic, “Rabboni!” (which means “Teacher”).
17 Jesus said, “Do not hold on to me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father. Go instead to my brothers and tell them, ‘I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.’”
18 Mary Magdalene went to the disciples with the news: “I have seen the Lord!” And she told them that he had said these things to her.
