Thorns and Tears

Settling small. 
Circling inward,
with hushed reverence during these hours between the cross and the rising. 
Considering the grief stricken love and strength shared by women of faith as they supported each other at the foot of the Lord’s cross,
 as they comforted each other beside His grave. 
Considering the darkness within the tomb, the great relief of quiet, the covered form, and the heart that was still.
Yet, soon, behind that stone,
 within that darkness, 
arrived the sacred presence and the resurrecting power of our Almighty God. Within that darkness God reached out to restore our Lord to a new, transformed life.
While the night remained dark, Angels kept vigil, waiting for the women, prepared to announce God’s Risen Son.
Faith believes in unseen miracles even in the darkness of tears and thorns.

Faithfully awaiting the dawn Easter,


  1. Waiting with you! Happy Resurrection Day!
