Easter 2016: A Poem

Almost 2000 years ago, a tomb stood empty.
Empty of its occupant.
And the news of that event spread outwards from Jerusalem all over the world.
And light and love entered human hearts.

Today humanity’s hearts seem to stand empty of that light and love.
We have all of us made our hearts as empty as that tomb.
The heart of humanity has become like a tomb- an empty tomb- empty of Christ.
Holman Hunt once painted a picture of Christ standing knocking at the door of our hearts .
Today it would be a picture of Mary Magdalene standing outside our empty hearts asking, “My Lord is gone. And I do not know where they have lain Him.”

-A poem written by Christopher
Easter Sunday

    All true. And some of it sad.
    Great thoughts for Easter!

    Something to ponder, Chris. The zombie apocalypse is surely upon us.

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      Yes, all signs of a zombie apocalypse all around us.

      A bunch of brainless heartless spaced-out looking people walking the streets.

      And even worse, a bunch of brainless heartless spaced-out looking people either occupying high political office or running for high political office.

        It the BHSO people about to get elected that really worry me.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        When I first read this comment, I was wondering what BHSO stood for?

        I googled it and found out that BHSO either stood for Braddell Heights Symphony Orchestra in Singapore or the Burgess Hill Symphony Orchestra in the United Kingdom.

        I was going to ask you which of these two symphony orchestras it was that you were most terrified of getting elected.

        Then I suddenly noticed my comment above where I talked about Brainless Heartless Spaced Out looking people and realized that you had probably adapted BHSO as an acronym for that term.

      • Hyperion said,

        Hahhaahahaha! Yes, I’m lazy and a career military strategist. We make an acronym out of every sentence repeated more than once. For instance, Sherrielock Holmes is tomatoing heartless equine admiring dunderheads becomes the acronym SHIT HEAD. Eight words become two with a little more flair. πŸ˜€

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        I think there was a dog in an old Steve Martin movie that had that name.

        Now that I think about it, the dog’s bottom did appear quite red. πŸ˜€

      • Hyperion said,

        LOL! He was tomatoed by our heroine no doubt.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Indeed. πŸ˜€

    This is the one I’d received from you a few days ago in the email.
    Thank you so much for this and a reminder on what Jesus did to saved us mankind of the death of sins and defeated the devil …

    Amen! Amen!
