Easter Week

Picture the Risen Lord greeting His friends and followers. Mary Magdalene mistook Him for the gardener. In an amusing conversation with a couple of travelers to Emmaus, Jesus pretended not to know about the events surrounding His death. When the Disciples feared that a ghost had appeared, Jesus pointed out that He had flesh and bones, and could use something to eat. On the Sea of Tiberius, Peter jumped into the water when another Disciple realized that Jesus stood on shore. If we fail to picture Jesus having a gentle sense of humor, how often might we miss seeing His presence in our lives?
