Maundy Thursday...Good Friday eve...

A quiet night in the Bay. Teams are wrapping up before the Easter break as the staff prepares to head home for the weekend. Home seems far away. My heart is strangely turned toward Christ himself on this "Maundy Thursday". What would life have been for our dear Savior this night? On the eve of Good Friday- longing for home, knowing what lay before Him- what sorrow, and yet the Scriptures declare that 'for the joy set before Him he endured the cross...' What unimaginable grace- the joy of having the likes of us to be wed to a bridgroom like Him. Jesus shines fairer. Jesus shines brighter. Pray for the Bay that even though 'homes' are being restored that we would all would stay restless until our rest is found in that uncorruptable HOME. Psalm 62.
