A night of watching: Easter comes

Easter is an event that underscores our living~ it is the breath that gives life to our souls; it's truth is the air we breathe and it's hope is what anchors our spirit and settles our minds. His body broken ~ for you, for me. Communion with the living Christ is our daily bread.

Quivering strings
Play across the soul
As they feel
The song of heaven
Voices giving praise
In this swell
Of worship

That crests
And peaks
Like waves across
An ocean
A giving of thanks
Amidst the pain
And the sorrows;
The constructs of
Everyday life

A crescendo
Of unveiling joy
In these last hours
Of the holiest week
Forever remembered
As in gathering shadows
He laid aside His robe
And knelt low
To wash the weary
A Servant bent
In the dust
Of earth

Sounds of eucharisteo
A sweet symphony
As the bread is passed
On this night of watching
In communion
The unfolding once again
The Passion
The mystery
Of Love
That presses
Through death
To life

“Yet not my will, but yours be done.” (Luke 22:42)
