You are probably familiar with Qumran as the place where the Dead Sea Scroll were discovered. It is believed to be a settlement where a group of Essenes lived in a communal lifestyle and where the scrolls were copied. The photo is of Cave 4, one of the 11 caves where the scrolls were discovered.

He is risen indeed!
Be blessed this wonderful Resurrection Day!
These photos were taken inside the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, built on the traditional place where Jesus was crucified, buried and resurrected. I thought they were appropriate for a day such as today, when we celebrate His crucifixion as an atonement for our sins, and look toward Sunday and His resurrection as the firstfruis of those who have fallen asleep (1 Corinthians 15:20). He is risen!
Just wanted to put up a quick post to let you all know why I have been MIA for the past couple of weeks. On Saturday, March 21 we received a call letting us know my Mother-in-Law had passed away during the night. We tried desperately to find a flight out of Colorado into Pittsburgh but there were none available until Monday. So, we decided to pack up and quickly started out on a road trip to WV. Thanks to all of you who follow on Twitter and Facebook who were praying for us during this difficult time. All went as well as can be expected and we are now home and trying to get back to some sense of normalcy. Julie has a post up on her blog if you want to check that out.
You all are such a blessing to us! Thanks for your prayers and support.
