Holy Saturday

“The older I get, the more I need Holy Saturday. It used to simply be the day between Good Friday and Easter Sunday. But now: it’s the day for those of us still waiting. It’s the day for those of us who didn’t get the miracle, who live in the space between Now and Not Yet. It’s the day for the company of those with unanswered prayers and broken hearts and realities different than what was advertised. God waits in our Saturdays with us. Love is here in our Saturdays of grief and loneliness and anger and loss with infinite tenderness and unconditional love and sufficient grace and holy presence. Your Saturday is real. Just because Easter is coming eventually doesn’t mean this doesn’t matter. Be blessed in your Saturday. May you know and experience the love of God in the in-between.”
