As a girl, I found it hard to reconcile the suffering of Good Friday with the chocolate abundance of Easter Sunday. We worked through our Sunday school lessons, asking questions and falling quiet when we realized all He endured for us. That everything could somehow be better by Sunday, dressed in tights and Mary Jane’s, eating Ham dinner and hot cross buns, was lost on me. That feeling continues as an adult.
Have you ever noticed the darkness that falls between noon and 4pm on Good Friday? It happened here yesterday.
“We focus on Good Friday and Resurrection Sunday, but we forget to pause in the stillness of the days between.
Find time today to be present in that place of waiting.
There is treasure to be found in the sacred peace that comes as you breathe in that place of quiet surrender.
Don’t rush through the space called “Between.” ―Katherine J. Walden
* Happy Easter to all who celebrate *
