Dawn’s Greeting

The morning after

He is risen

It’s Monday

Why is it so hard to extend rejoicing to Monday.

Yesterday was full of activity.

Maybe too much.

I started fine – but now am robed in fleece on my couch, knotted within, fever pouring out my brow

But the Son rose yesterday, and the sun rose today

Just as it did that Monday.

All is new; why does all feel the same

All is forgiven, yet a mere word can return the guilt.

Death is done, yet we watch as it seems to linger still

The sun rose and kept its commitment no matter mine

The Son rose and keeps His commitment no matter mine

The commitment is His alone. The covenant is His in full measure

So Monday, be as you will, and I will be as I am and trust that indeed, as your sun rises without fail and brings with it clouds and rain,

So too, the Son has risen without fail and there is peace in the believing.
