Thoughts on the Day after Easter

Easter is just too damn big.

I mean,
+++how can you celebrate it adequately?
How do you celebrate the come-from-behind,
+++Hail-Mary-pass of the Resurrection?
What music is adequate for marking the
+++Victory over Death, Hell, and Satan himself?

No wonder Clydesdales’ music sounds like it does —
+++the Choir of the Bleeding Vocal Chords.

What we did was big, and loud, and full of awe.
+++You can’t beat “Worthy Is the Lamb” and “Hallelujah” from Messiah.

It still wasn’t enough.
+++I don’t think anything would be enough.

Standing next to the Risen Christ, it all
++++++in comparison.

Maybe that’s the point.

    I say YES!
    We have no adequate way to language what we are experiencing as God Easters us.
    The unfathomable mystery of God’s presence in our midst leaves us mute with joy!

      Thank you for commenting! Yes, that was my thought — the Easter event is too “big” for even words. Lewis uses that concept in The Great Divorce — that heaven and heavenly reality is by nature bigger than hell.
