A Prayer for Easter

Gracious God, the curtains that have kept life dark have been parted. Light, in a glorious panoply of color—white and yellow, blue and green, red and pink —streams over my soul and brightens my heart.  Everything that could create the illusion of despair has been brushed  aside. All is fresh.  All is new.  Hope, that most buoyant of companions, has lifted my soul.  Resurrection has destroyed the darkness of death, and I am free to live in Easter joy once more.  I thank you and rejoice in your love.
