Holy Saturday

Traditionally a day of Easter Egg hunts and coloring eggs, in reality, Holy Saturday is a dark day.  Jesus has died.  His body was lain in the tomb, and he hasn’t risen yet.  Christians of course believe that he will, know that he will, but imagine if you didn’t.  Imagine how the disciples felt 2000 years ago having watched their beloved teacher die on the cross and laid in the tomb.  It was a dark day indeed.

Now am I saying not to color eggs or have Easter Egg hunts?  No.  I’m just saying that we should remember what the day actually means, remember what happened on that first Holy Saturday, and take a moment to pray.
