“He is risen.”
“He is risen indeed.”
This ancient greeting, passed from one follower of Jesus to another on Easter morning, says it all. Death is a defeated foe. God’s word is trustworthy. His promises are true. And as believers in Jesus, we have a future and a hope.
Here at Jane Started It, this Easter brings a personal reminder of victory over death.
Since July, it has been our privilege to pray for our own Gayle Mills, as she underwent treatment for colon cancer.
The prognosis was chilling, truly. And yet God was with Gayle every step of the way. Along with her family, friends, and coworkers, we prayed, and our Gayle bravely walked through the dark days of chemo and radiation.
Bit by bit, the cancer was beaten back. In March, Gayle felt well enough to return to teaching, retreating to her cot during prep periods. And at the beginning of this month, Gayle makes this announcement:
I am officially in remission and cancer free. God has been so good to me. Thanks for every prayer you’ve offered on my behalf. Thanks for your encouragement and support.
Needless to say, we are rejoicing over what God has done for Gayle and her family.
Thank you, sincerely, for your prayers on her behalf. May your Easter be a blessed one.
