Forty-Days. Part-One.

From the resurrection to the Acension.

First Witnesses.

Soldiers had been placed at the tomb where Jesus was buried, the first to see the resurrection of Jesus was those soldiers guarding the tomb. Early in the morning a Angel came down from Heaven and rolled that massive stone away.

The soldiers took fright seeing the bright light and what was happening they froze on the spot and later fled into Jerusalem to report these tremendous events.

‘A time to Reflect.

This where we go wrong with any kind of Rememberance, we forget to reflect on the day. Reflectio is a great thing to do for anthing, because it allows us to see our mistakes and learn not to do them again?

Many armies do not reflect, because they do not want to destroy or reveal their failures. In all wars soldiers of any conflict are left scarred mentaly, without help. We hear and see what seems to be help, but this is usually for certain ranks.

War also leaves victums and many accusations, so it is better to talk afterwards to try an resolve things. Meanwhile the bible has much to say on the matter of remembering, so let us reflect on His words to help us push on.
