Sunday ‑ Dead man walking

“On the first day of the week, very early in the morning, the women took the spices
they had prepared and went to the tomb. They found the stone rolled away from the
tomb, but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. While they
were wondering about this, suddenly two men in clothes that gleamed like lightning
stood beside them. In their fright the women bowed down with their faces to the
ground, but the men said to them, “Why do you look for the living among the dead?
He is not here;”
Luke 24:1‑6 (TNIV)

There is a time for words, and a time for silence.
A time to reflect, to dissect and understand,
and there is a time to just stand and look.

To behold.

Later comes the thankfulness, the future and the promise.
Thankfulness for this bruised reed not broken, this smouldering wick
not snuffed out; that our fragile hopes have not been crushed, and we
are still standing when the lights come back on.

But first, there is a time to just stand and look.
