For Me

For Me

Adam chose, for me

–I could have done no better.


Christ died, for me

–died as a man who could die for the trespass

–rose as a God who had power over death.


But there are others who DID, for me…

Mary Magdalene went, for me

to take spices and service, for me

And for me

–she saw him

–she fell at his feet

–she held tight

–she said, “Oh my darling Lord!”

For me


John and Peter ran, for me

–raced, for me

–stopped at the tomb, for me

Because I couldn’t be there

They ducked in, for me


And Thomas asked, for me

–doubted, for me

–touched him, for me

–called him “My Lord & My God”

For me.

Because I couldn’t be there.


And Luke & Mark & Matthew & John wrote it down, for me

–remembered, for me

–took a pen and parchment, with me in mind

–and researched more, for me.


Because I couldn’t be there

They did it, for me

& through them, I was there.


–I saw

–I held

–I cried

–I touched

–I knew


because they did it

For Me!–by Darlene N. Bocek

Stricken, Smitten and Afflicted in a World God Made

3D Mona Lisa

I learned today, in this article and some other related research, that a second Mona Lisa painting is suspected of being another side of a 3D experience. If anyone could pull this off, it would be Leonardo DaVinci. I focused my eyes between these two pictures and was...

Where Is God as the World Rages?

Exodus 3:9 is a strange verse. Where was God, those 400 years that “finally” he heard, finally he saw? Was he busy on the other end of the universe—perhaps evidence that we are not alone, not so very special? Evidence that God needed 400 years to take care of some...
