“We focus on Good Friday and Resurrection Sunday, but we forget to pause in the stillness of the days between. Find time today to be present in that place of waiting.

The days between Good Friday and Easter are usually filled with preparations
for the big celebration meal,

when I was a child, the new outfits and shiny shoes,
making the bunny cake.
the days between were spent on reflection
on what happened the day before
like the disciples and followers that first day after.

and when not flowing are right below the surface
sleep doesn’t come.

that on the third day He would rise from the dead.
Were probably planning their escape from Jerusalem

They Were Mourning
the death of their Messiah and friend
the man they followed
left everything for
They felt betrayed.
The Days Between
Good Friday and the Resurrection
were a time of
A Time of Reflection…
