My Song

In my songs, I have voiced Your spring
flowers and given rhythm to Your rustling leaves.

I have sung into the hush of Your night and
the peace of Your morning.

The thrill of the first summer rains has passed
into my tunes and the waving of the autumn harvest.

Let not my song cease.

 

Tagore

Transcending Love

“Hosanna, Our King!”
He arrives with palms and cheers,
Expectations soar.

Excitement abounds,
Our warrior King has come then
disappointment looms.

Betrayed and Denied

Mock court shouts “GUILTY!”
Bones stripped bare, nerves screaming
He pours out His life.

Cross drops into hole,
Everyone laughs at the moans
mingled with a thud.

Heaven is groaning,
Earth trembles and shakes apart.
The curtain is ripped.

Silent vigil is long.
Dewey fresh sunrise at last.
The tomb is empty.

Passover

As Christians, we should also celebrate this day, 15th day of Nisan in the Jewish calendar. It is a day of celebration and remembrance, and also a day and the rest of the week of living God’s providence.

Passover is about slavery and redemption and we are not just suppose to remember and talk about redemption but we are to live it.
