The Good News is…

The good news is
New life springs up
In former places of
Decay or wilt
Each year.

A welcoming breath
expands to sing
A delightful, joyous lilt
In praise
For shadows withdraw
In the Sons warm rays
Three days, three days!
They will destroy the temple,
But I’ll raise it up!
Jesus said this to them
and perplexed.
Good Friday was
The darkest day
As people hated and
Killed pure love for them
in blind ambition, jealousy, confusion…
What King is this
In thorny crown?
Throw yourself down! If it be so…
They shouted.
Amused by the blood.
Unmoved by the scene.
Forgive them, Father, He weeped.
The Good News is…
Jesus said, “It is finished” as he hung.
His last breath escaping
His lungs
in peaceful submission.
To the point of death, enduring
The hate.
To the point of blood
His passion complete.
A love so great,
Though of God Jesus yelled…
“My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”
Wanting pain to pass…
He knew the cost
Of such a trial
But life still wins
Though death prevailed
That day, dark.
And with the marks,
They shrouded Him in linen,
Laid Him to rest.
Beautiful, peaceful one…
What is to come?
…Mark 16…

The purple tulips are pushing up through the crunchy leaves in the flower bed in the backyard. The sun is really shining today!

“Do little things as if they were great, because of the majesty of the Lord Jesus Christ, who dwells in thee; and do great things as if they were little and easy, because of his omnipotence.” ~ Blaise Pascal ~

Thanks – Happy resurrection 🙂 And I made a mistake. These are purple crocuses… I have to work on my “green thumb.”
