There is a preparing in our hearts. A time of anticipation.
Awaiting a promise. Looking for the refreshment.
This season is upon us.
Just before Easter.
So much thought is given to preparing for Christmas. Possibly it is selfish territory disguised as a religious venue. Not lasting long after the twenty-fifth of December.
A superficial stirring in our shallow hearts driving us to masquerade a façade of compassion and generosity.
Are hearts still swirling with surrender and mercy? Or did the granules of grace settle to the bottom?
A season of preparation is upon us. An invitation to introspection. Delving into the deep.
A time of self-denial is explored. A fasting out of religious obligation?
Or a sacrifice for a Savior?
This Easter we anticipate and prepare. We celebrate.
There is devotion. To something. To Someone, hopefully.
Our hearts long for a filling. A fresh awakening.
The stone is rolled away.
And we welcome a resurrection.
