And so we wait like watchmen for the morning

by chuckofish

Although many people spend the Saturday before Easter preparing for tomorrow’s big family gathering, it’s mostly a waiting day for me. We are long past the Easter basket- egg hunt stage, and there will only be three of us for dinner. Still, we will have ham and all the fixings and I have some chocolate eggs squirreled away, so the table will be festive. I might even buy some grocery store flowers.

In the meantime, “I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, and in his word I hope; my soul waits for the Lord more than watchmen for the morning, more than watchmen for the morning” (Psalm 130: 5-6).

Mykola Ge, Harbingers of the Resurrection, 1867

Have a Happy Easter!
