Chapter 3, Page 26, Book 16

Every day's a perfect gift of time for us to use. Hours waiting to be filled in any way we choose. Each morning brings a quiet hope that rises with the sun. Each evening brings the sweet content that comes with work well done.

This is Holy Saturday, the day the world waits on the great event. There can be no Easter Sunday without Holy Saturday. There can be no growth without the waiting for God to come.

Growth is the only evidence of life.

Henry John Newman

That's what life teaches us. When we feel the pain of loss or sickness, we have to wait 'til we heal.

Jesus lies in the tomb: today we await His resurrection in quiet expectation of His victory over death.

Holy Saturday is the day, which connects Good Friday, the commemoration of the Cross, with the day of His Resurrection. 

O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? 

1 Corinthians 15:55

Happy Easter.


Mr. Newman is indeed right, "Growth is the only evidence of life."

And how sad the disciples were that first Saturday; but what joy and great news they had the following day!
