Virtual Grave Tour to return New Year’s Day

I’ve always had a love for cemetery. There’s just something peaceful about them. Most people see them as a place where one only goes when they die.

They see cemeteries as cold, dark, gloomy places of mourning and sadness. But to me, cemeteries aren’t all cold, dark, gloomy places of mourning and sadness. They aren’t places where one should only go when they die.

In fact, you can learn a lot just by going and walking through a cemetery and looking at the dates on the headstones, thinking about what all the people lived through and what they saw during their time here on Earth.

I’ve lived across the road from a cemetery all of my life. The graves in that cemetery range from 1863 up until 2010.

When I was a young boy, about 9 or 10, my brother and I, along with our friends would go up to the cemetery at night and play hide and seek with flashlights so that we could see and avoid disrespecting those that were peacefully sleeping at our feet.

So, I’ve always loved the history that cemeteries hold and the stories that are told by the dates on the headstone.

Stories of heart-ache, heartbreak, loneliness, illness, wellness, happiness and sadness. But above all, stories that in a way, make you feel a certain connection to the people that have walked the land before your time. The rich and poor, the old and the young, the famous and the ordinary, their stories all differ, but they’re all the same in a way. They’re all human just like you and I.

I say all of that to say this on January 1, 2022, the Virtual Grave Tour will return to a cemetery near you, wherever you may be, the Virtual Grave Tour travels all over this great land, from California to Florida and anywhere in between.

Come along won’t you? Relive and remember history one grave at a time.

He is Not Here: The Day the Stone of Death Was Rolled Away

Millions of years ago, Jesus rose from the dead as only He can do.

Today millions of years ago, the stone of death was rolled away from The Tomb of God.

Today, we celebrate Easter, the resurrection of Christ. This day isn’t about about a rabbit, candy or food of any kind.

Instead it’s about something far greater, this day is about Jesus Christ. For the stone of death has been rolled away, Jesus has emerged from the tomb where he once lay many years ago.

He has defeated death, the grave could not keep him, a white cloth is all that remains inside that tomb.

For God Himself is ALIVE and WELL.

Today, as we celebrate Easter with our loved ones, remember the real reason for this day, the day death lost and God won.

“He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay.”
‭‭Matthew‬ ‭28:6‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Happy Easter my friends, for God is not dead, He is surely alive.

God Bless.
