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.

‘Hank, Let’s Talk about Your Daddy’: A Day With The Lonesome Cowboy

It was a dreary and briskly cold December day in 2016, around 5 p.m., and I had known that Hank Williams Sr., was buried in Montgomery for years, but had never gotten the opportunity to pay a visit to the man who is quite possibly, the most famous country music singer still to this day.

So I got a hair of the dog, and decided to travel to Montgomery to visit the sacred gravesite of the legendary Hank Williams Sr.

As I rode to Montgomery, I listened to the lonesome-bluesy voice of The Drifter all the way to his grave.

When I arrived at his headstone, I stepped out of the car, I Saw The Light played on the radio, and suddenly, chills were sent spiraling down my spine.

For I knew just who was lying six feet below that cold, concrete slab, but I had never witnessed it first-hand before.

I looked up, gazing at the name on that tall, ghostly-grey headstone where the name of the country music pioneer is chiseled.

Then, I looked down at the base of his marker and noticed what looked like Hank’s famed cowboy hat.

I looked to my left, and there was Mrs. Audrey Mae Sheppard Williams, the wife of The Drifting Cowboy.

Time seemed to stand still for just a moment as I was in the presence of a legend and his wife.

I was standing just feet away from the man that brought country music to life.

Hank, let’s talk about your daddy, tell me how your mama loved that man, we won’t talk about the habits, just the music and the man.
