Easter hope

In the darkest of nights
when hope’s disappeared
and the dreams that you had
seem lost and destroyed…
turn your eyes to the east.

The dawn will come…
unseen at the first—
then a lightening of sky
from black to gray…
and glimpses of pink
till the whole world explodes
in a sunburst of light—
Easter miracle of rebirth and new life!

It’s always the darkest
right before dawn…
but the dawn will come.

I know that there are many people who are wondering if the dawn will ever come…who are feeling trapped in the darkness of the time between. May you be able to find peace…and feel the love of the many who support you in prayers and warm thoughts.
