A vital reminder

empty-tombEaster is a reminder
that God is not hostage
to one’s lack of faith.
Nobody was believing or looking
for it when it happened.

–Chris Seidman

The Dance Begins

Now is the shining fabric of our day
Turn open, flung apart, rent wide by love.
Never again the tight, enclosing sky,
The blue bowl or the star-illumined tent.
We are laid open to infinity,
For Easter love has burst His tomb and ours.
Now nothing shelters us from God’s desire‚
Not flesh, not sky, not stars, not even sin.
Now glory waits so He can enter in.
Now does the dance begin.

–Elizabeth Rooney

He quietly emerges

No life, no ideal, no person has ever been subjected to such criticism and even hatred, and yet he quietly emerges through the conflict as resplendent as when he emerged from the dark tomb on Easter morning.

–E. Stanley Jones (1884–1973)
