I Will Rise

"I will rise, out of these ashes, rise."  As you read this, Joe is rising.  He is ascending the mountain, rising out of the ashes of Phoenix.  Phoenix, the mythological bird, which when reduced to ashes is reborn anew to live again.  It is said that the bird's cry is that of a beautiful song.

"Death has been swallowed up in victory" 1 Corinthians 15:54.

where Glory meets my suffering
