Easter Saturday

A curiously empty day,
As if the world's life
Had gone underground.
The April sun
Warming dry grass
Makes pale spring promises
But nothing comes to pass.

Relaxes into despair
As we remember our helplessness,
Remember him hanging there.
We have purchased the spices
But they must wait for tomorrow.
We shall keep today
For emptiness and sorrow.

Awaiting the Resurrection celebration tomorrow.......

It was such a lovely celebration at our church this year! We ended the service with communion which I thought was just perfect.

Happy Resurrection Day to you Tammy!
