The hope of Easter silenced me today. I sought for words to express this strange co-mingling of gratitude and grief lodged in my heart. Yet, only awe of Him who has risen quieted my soul.
The years passing by rendered me mute. Today, I needed to be alone…and to weep. He is pure…I am humbled…He is here…I am thankful…and, I am silenced.
Tomorrow the day will fill with smiles and hugs. Children will return and family will gather to celebrate His faithfulness.
We will remember that we are loved and we will love one another. Like a colorful bouquet of joy filling empty spaces in hearts, we will celebrate Easter…but today…
I am silenced.

For me, this is not silence but solitude. A place from which to sort out the buzz and whir of constant activity. A place of solace and healing and gratitude. You said it well, my friend.
Look for the lyrics of the old Simon & Garfunkel song “Sound of Silence”.
