Easter, please?

I don’t know what it is about this year’s Holy Week, but I’m already feeling like tomorrow should be Good Friday with Easter on its heels.  And it’s only Wednesday.

What is it about weeks like this?  I have been so immersed in our little corner of the world–the details, the to-do’s and checklists, the daily sprint (that feels like a marathon)– to get through each day.   It’s been exhausting.  On Monday there were so many logistics to manage, I literally had to write out every single minute of the day in order for my feeble brain to conceptualize how it was all going to happen.  But it did, thankfully. Tuesday followed suit.  One foot in front of the other… check it off the list… move on to the next task… busy, busy, busy.

Frankly, I’m weary and I could use a few pastel-colored eggs.   I’m ready to sing the Gloria at Mass at the top of my lungs in praise for the goodness of making it through another Lent.  I’m ready to see my boys in sport coats and my little lady in Easter finest.  I’m ready for egg hunts and family togetherness and JOY.  I’m ready for the Resurrection.  I’m ready for Easter.

I have fought the good fight, I have finished the course, I have kept the faith.  2 Tim. 4:7

We are so close, it’s worth hanging on.  Christ did. Why can’t we too?

T minus 5 days and counting…

    Feeling the same way over here, B-Mama. It will feel so good to get to Easter! Grateful to have kindred spirits trudging up the Lenten hill with Christ as our guide…

    Agree totally, Bethany. Your post made me reflect today on something that hits me every year on Holy Thursday. Lent is very very challenging as a Catholic… but the Easter Triduum is absolutely magnificent. My conversion of heart became complete during the Holy Thursday post-Mass pilgrimages in Princeton. The Triduum is certainly the Church’s finest hour… as it should be, since it’s our salvation. Even as a devout Evangelical, I had never imagined the extent of Easter joy possible. I think I ache for it all year long, and now that it’s within reach, I’m ready to sprint to the finish!

    I feel the same way, Bethany!
