Ruth Bell Graham: That was the Day Between

That was the Day Between
The Night before –
The blood
still wet upon the hill;

His body
wrapped,
entombed,
and still;
the great stone sealed
with Roman seal
and guarded well.

Many a Judean home
had now become
a lesser tomb
within whose walls
men lay,
whose Life had died
That Day.

Looking back
we cannot share
their black
despair.
For us
He is the Risen Christ,
as He had said:
for them, that Shabbat,
all life died –
for He was dead

That was the Day Between,
The Night Before.

This is my Day Between
my Night Before…

Suspended
in this interim –
let me be still
let me adore
let me remember
Him.
from Sitting by My Laughing Fire by Ruth Bell Graham
