My lawnmower is dead. I probably killed it. Here is the irony – the warranty ran out less than a week before its demise. I mentioned this in my Easter Sermon yesterday. Why? Because the resurrection of Christ gives us hope in the good times and bad. Because Jesus is alive we can endure a broken lawnmower, losing a job, or the death of a loved one. Today I heard some good news about my lawnmower – it will be alive soon. Briggs and Stratton is adjusting my warranty. The parts are covered, and all I have to pay for is labor. Before long I will be able to cut the grass again. This minor roadblock in my journey is a reminder that whatever happens, there is always hope in Christ!
