3rd Day

Written by Ingrid Asplund

          Romans 8:11

I wonder how You rose:

bright eyed, leaping to Your feet?

Did You open Your eyes, smile, and

enjoy the weekend morning just a little?

 

Or like a missionary:

         groaning as the alarm buzzed 6:30

         rolling right on to Your knees
