She saith unto them, “Because they have taken away my Lord, and I know not where they have laid him.”
And when she had thus said, she turned herself back, and saw Jesus standing, and knew not that it was Jesus.

Jesus saith unto her, "Mary".
She turned herself, and saith unto him, “Rabboni; which is to say, Master.”

Joy unspeakable indeed!!
So let us go forth believing and living for Him, until He comes again or takes us home.
