A comedy after all: Easter

He says her name, “Mary.”  And suddenly Easter happens.  The random becomes the real.  The new story line clicks into place.  The world rotates on a different axis.  The universe is turned upside-down, inside out.  Mary becomes the first to understand that death cannot be the last word.  That Jesus’s story was not a tragedy.  That life is a comedy after all, because God will not let loose ends go untied, and God will turn every stumbling block into stepping stones.
