Jesus’ resurrection makes beautiful things out of dirt.
Early Sunday morning, the disciples had returned to where they were staying. It was just Mary Magdalene left, crying, by the tomb were Jesus lay.
Soon, she saw angels and who she thought was the gardener. It is possible the Jesus waited til Mary was on her own.
The picture of Jesus’ tending the garden, might have seemed like a mistake on Mary’s part. Or, there’s significance here. Jesus: hands in the mud; intimately involved in the confusion and heartache that permeates humanity.
His resurrection means he continues to make beautiful things out of the dirt.
