Themes: Resurrection; new life
Today, my love, is the day you have waited for.
A new morning has arrived for you.
The stone over your resting place has felt too heavy by far. Trust that someone is helping you push it away.
Feel those grave clothes which have bound you start to disintegrate. Trust that you deserve to be seen just as you are.
See that? A shaft of morning light has travelled for millions of miles to warm you back to life. That light! It will hurt your eyes after your long sleep, but don’t be afraid.
Smell that? Lilacs crushed underfoot offer up their gentle perfume to wake you to your senses.
Today is the day you come up from the grave. New life is waiting inside you.
You are risen. Believe.
