Awakening! Happy Easter

Happy Easter, friends! Thank you for journeying with me through this Lenten season with the seven daily pauses. Enjoy today and all the blessings it holds!


Awakening2

The kingdom of heaven 
is at hand!

Mercy and grace,
it’s true!

Today is about Jesus, and
it’s about more than Jesus.

You see, friend,
today is about
the resurrection 
of Christ

And,
 today is about
your resurrection 
in Christ

Mercy and grace,
it’s true!

The stone of your heart
has been rolled away,

Can you feel it?

No more waiting
for a better day to come along

No more waiting
until all your chores are done

No more waiting
for someone special to invite you

The kingdom of heaven
is at hand,
today!

Mercy and grace,
it’s true!

Come along, friend

Step into the kingdom

Say yes to

dawning

blessings

peace

wisdom

reflection

silence

waiting

Say yes to it all
and the resurrected life
will no longer be
a once a year story
you hear in church
on Easter morning.

The resurrected life
will become your story.

Mercy and grace,
it’s true!

There is evening
and there is morning
And God sees
(the whole blessed thing)
is good.

Amen.
