Three Days Ago

When we talk today,
His voice is not anguished with a plea that I stay awake;
His brow is not beading red with anticipated pain,
His heart not split with the stab of betrayal.

When we talk today,
His face is not marred with a torn beard,
His hair not tangled with broken thorns,
His back not burning with lacerated flesh.

When we talk today,
His mouth is not dripping with rejected sour wine,
His side not gaping with merciless curiosity,
His body not shamed without handspun robes.

When we talk today,
His perfection is complete in beauty,
His honor surrounding in a cloud of glory,
His evidence of three days before, the scars on His hands and feet.

Dear friends,
May you all have a glorious Resurrection Sunday as we rejoice in our risen Lord!

I love how Clare focuses on Jesus' triumph.

This is not the attitude of a victim, but that of a victor. He had an assignment and fulfilled it to perfection.
