Over at Diamonds in the Sky with Lucy this week, Lucy posted a comment about "the place in-between" and what it means to her right now. I found that I had some feelings about what that "in-between" time is for me right now that I wanted to share here.
The in-between time definition for me is the space between the end of Lent, the beginning of Holy Week.....Lent seems like a long journey and yet it is almost complete and now I must, I have to, it's required if I believe in Jesus Christ, step into the crowd singing hosannas on Palm Sunday and before the week is over, screeching 'crucify him' - it is indeed an in between time.
I would prefer the happily ever after ending/the Resurrection without all of the mess in-between but for me, I don't believe I can skip all the in-between and understand the Resurrection. God chooses such an interesting crowd of workers to deliver the good news!
