My sons, the world will expect you to lift many burdens
but I tell you, the strength of your arms is
to lift children, love the poor,
and embrace the weak;
strengthen your feeble arms but carry only the Light Load.
Somehow, in all of this darkness and brokenness and ugliness, Christ is here. I have found him more here than in the happy wholeness of before.

Death before resurrection
That's the cycle; the schedule of events In life, inwardly and outwardly
To die so that we might live.

Passover the pain no more
And on the final day
Leave the grave clothes and grieving behind
And embrace Life.
