In our Bible study we are walking with Jesus through the final week before his crucifixion. Can you imagine how it must have been to live inside his skin? As he looks around he sees these people he has come to love so dearly. That is one of the hard things for those who face death, thinking about those who are left behind. He has done so much good, does he yearn for more time to do more good and to enjoy his friends?
The song about how Jesus walked the lonesome valley keeps playing in my head. He had to walk it by himself. We too have our lonesome valleys and no matter how many people we have in our lives there are some valleys we find we are alone. Just us. And God. Sometimes we need to take the time to go sit in that proverbial valley and feel what we feel.
And we wait for Easter. We wait to hear that triumphant message. The Day of Resurrection means more to those that have walked the Lenten journey, who have walked in the valley. Some people wake up to Easter candy and baskets and bunnies. We who follow Christ wake up to Hope. We wake to New Life. We wake to a firm belief that there is more to life than the dark valleys.
Come walk with us. Spread your cloaks, wave your palms as Jesus comes to town. Come receive the bread of life and the cup of salvation and know "this is for you." This forgiveness, this mercy, this gracious love is poured out for love of you. Come receive the most wondrous gift of all, the gift of God's love nailed to a cross, raised to Glory. We wait in eager anticipation for the joy about to be revealed to us."
