When we are young, we are full of hopes and dreams.  “I will be an astronaut!” “I will have my happily ever after!”  So what does resurrection mean in regard to these times all the plans we made have collapsed into a pile on the floor??

I imagine Mary, at Calvary, visions of grandkids who would never be.  I imagine the disciples, hiding in fear, daring not dream of what might have been. 
But I also see Jesus, walking into a locked room, declaring that death does not win.  I see Jesus offering new life, new hope, a new future, and a new direction to the disciples.  I see Jesus walking and talking with them until that new vision sinks in.  I see Jesus sending a comforter who stays with us.

What does resurrection mean?  God gives new dreams!
