The Surprise of Easter Morning

Good Morning, God!

Easter!  Easter Morning!  I was looking for a flower that would capture the GLORY of the Day. But, truly, God, what flower could?

To dip into the mundane world for a minute — my new suitcase — intermediate size — did not arrive last night. I awoke this morning listing the contents and “missing” them. That isn’t at all like the WAY in which we MISS a PERSON, God. But, it made me think of all of Jesus’ friends and family — MISSING HIM.

Grieving all day Friday, all day Saturday — MISSING HIM. But, unlike me and my suitcase, they were not EXPECTING HIM TO RETURN!

Now, I hope to be happy upon the return of my suitcase. But, I sit here, trying to compare that to the AMAZED GLORIOUS SURPRISED JOY of the disciples upon the Return of Jesus!

If I will be happy at the return of my “missing” suitcase — how much MORE did the disciples — REJOICE at The Return of Jesus, on Easter!

Jesus had tried to explain, God. But, his followers COULD NOT COMPREHEND!  I don’t blame them AT ALL!  Miracles are one thing — rising from the DEAD — quite another. Even after the miracle of Lazarus, God, our human minds, don’t seem to stretch THAT FAR.

We need Your Help, God, to grasp that — or is it to be GRASPED BY IT? It seems to me, God, that You LONG to BRING US INTO YOUR KINGDOM!  A kingdom in which everything is TURNED right-side-up!  In which we are empowered to Love our neighbors AS we love ourselves. A Kingdom of Love, of Light, of Life Eternal. WOW!
