Who will have the last word?

One of the blogs I've followed for the last couple of years is I'm thinking of starting a blog by Alison. 

If you've never heard Alison's family's story let me sum it up as briefly as I can: Alison has three kids, including identical twins who were born very premature after a complicated pregnancy (which was featured on the TV show RPA).  One of the twins, the cheeky and vivacious Ashlea, has multiple disabilities.  Last year, Ashlea underwent a kidney transplant.  Her father was the donor and a few days after the surgery (a year ago today) he suffered life-threatening complications that have left him with an acquired brain injury.

Now that's a pretty big lot of stuff to have on your plate.  Today Alison posted her thoughts on the anniversary of her husband Murray's injury.  You can read it here.  Today is resurrection day.  Today we remember that death did not have the last word.  Alison writes,

Brain injury will not have the last word.  Jesus will have the last word when He raises Murray to new life with Him.

Amen and hallelujah!  Christ is risen.  He is risen indeed.
