Only one person said her name like that.
She could hear her heart thumping.
She turned around…
she could just make out a figure.
She shaded her eyes to see.
She thought she was dreaming but she wasn’t dreaming.
She was seeing Jesus.
Mary fell to the ground.
Tears filled her eyes and great sobs shook her whole body
and all she wanted in that moment is to cling to Jesus and to never let Him go.
“You’ll be able to hold on to me later, Jesus said, and always be close to me.
go tell the others that
I AM ALIVE.”
