Heart Burn

Heart Burn

Were not our hearts burning? Yes, when He spoke with us on the road to Emmaus. Reclining at the table, Jesus broke bread with us! He opened up the Scripture to us! But we were slow to believe Wanting proof, some went to the tomb and found it empty. The prophets had spoken these things! [...]
