Silent Tears

The author of Hebrews tells us that before he died, "he offered prayers and pleadings, with a loud cry and tears, to the one who could rescue him from death." But he was not rescued from death and this is where we are today. He was not rescued.I'm struck with the haunting sound of the loud cries and tears---and as one translation puts it...."silent tears."I've had my own, haven't you? Silent tears of over a situation that seems impossible--so dark that there simply is no light at the end of the tunnel. Today is the day we face the cul de sacs of our lives with no way out but to wait right here...right now.This is where we are today on Holy Saturday.This is my Lenten Journey.Stephen W. SmithPotter's
