O God, I rest in hope,
for I know that you will raise me up.
This is the waiting time. Use it in sacred ways.
We have an advantage over the twelve apostles.
We already know there is an Easter on the horizon.
Allow yourself to feel the grief they must have felt when they did not know this.
Give yourself permission to be solemn but with a joyful heart.
What did you do to keep this day holy?
