Resurrection Day, 2016

I wanted a flashy day with loud music, confetti, and line dancing but God said No. Resurrection is a process.

I wanted a forgettable day with daffodils, blinding sunbeams, and enough perspiration bleeding through my t-shirt to prove that Winter had come to an end. God provided a pale day and a chastening spirit which chilled the bones of the beeches and chattered the ghosts which clung to their outstretched arms.

I zipped my jacket and kept hiking. Hints of redbud pink rewarded my perseverance.

Today I sit behind my desk and discover that I have one delicious hour more than I had expected. I have forgotten my utensils and, in the privacy of my office, peel and eat a sweet potato like an ice cream cone while typing these words with sticky fingers. Ideas rattle in my own skull, crowding one another and asking for safe passage onto paper. I choose to bring this one to Life:

God has provided another perfect day.

  1. Eating a sweet potato like an ice cream cone: Now there’s an image I’m not gonna go get any time soon. I bet you won’t either!

    I just sat for a quick lunch and this image via your post has brought a smile to my face, much like the sunshine that came today after all the rain yesterday.

    It is indeed a perfect day! Thanks for sharing 😀🌷
