You'll be back... And we'll be waiting...


meditating...
what took place at the crucifixion? 
agape love manifested into reality - physical, touchable...
oh how Jesus has always loved us!
and He says,
 'it is finished'... 
my sin debt, your sin debt...
paid...


and those who were there, 
how they wept!
how they grieved!

and they begged for the Body...

who was it, 
whose own sin filled hand,
 cleansed the Precious Blood, 
gently... tenderly...
from His sinless Body?
to have that agape,
 salvation,
 Holy Blood on their hands...
and then to cleanse it away...
Blood that cleanses from sin... 
still today.

who washed the Hair 
matted...
 tangled with agape, love Blood?

who wrapped the beautiful Feet of Him who spread Gospel truth?

who wrapped those gentle healing Hands?
who tenderly wrapped that lovely Face...

how carefully they wrapped that bloodied,
 wounded,
 gutted Body.

the God - man, 
Savior,
King...

and where did the cloth come from,
 the linen?
who wove it?
holy cloth to wrap the Holiest...

and then to leave that Body there
roll stone across the opening...
walk away...
with shattered heart streaming wet down their face...


and again there was darkness...
and they wept...
and they were grieved...


how awesome that it didn't 'end' that way!

how awesome that three days later...
He had the power to put life back into His Body...
and so He did
come back to life...
rise again...
alive...
and not dead!

and precious Holy cloth 
that wrapped Holiest Face
He folded...
folded...
(for He will be back!)
and laid it aside...

and that stone
was rolled away!!!
and He is alive!




"oh Precious Blood, shed long ago...
sinners cleanse
neath It's crimson flow...
there's only Power...
God's sweet Power...
where the Blood
of Jesus
flows..."
