Matthew 28:8-So the women left the tomb quickly with fear and great joy...
This picture is my mom at Easter four years ago. She had just received her ALS diagnosis. I imagine that day she had a mixture of fear about what the future held, and great joy watching her grandkids collecting eggs on a sunny afternoon. Fear and joy.

Fear is hard to avoid sometimes. We live in a dangerous, uncertain world. But we can temper fear with joy. We can tell people good news, even when we're fearful. Or maybe especially when we're fearful. And maybe that's where we can find great joy.
