  1. The bible says what Mary did for Jesus would be preached in the whole world, yet I never heard it preached until I read it myself in 1998! Not only did women recognize what even the disciples and religious leaders could not see, but they recognized him in his many new resurrected forms! The heart is so critical to see rightly! It is interesting that his disciples did not believe the women, so Jesus “upbraided them for their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they had not believed those who saw him after he had risen” Mark 16:14 So too, many today do not believe what Jesus told us we could do, “his works and even greater works” because he is with our Father now and sent us his Spirit and fire! Jesus said he would work WITH US and confirm with signs attending (Mark 16:20). He told us to cast out demons, heal, speak in new tongues and that nothing can harm us! I believe Jesus and live in the child-like awe and wonder of his signs, wonders and miracles! Happy Resurrection Day now and forever and ever, Amen! ~Yvonne
