Holy Saturday

This has been my “day of preparation.”  I have written my part of our Easter reflections.  I have washed my white robe and hung it carefully to avoid wrinkles.  I have made the asparagus tarts for brunch tomorrow after church.  I have washed the gold cloth for the Table. I have washed and dried the new communion set that we will use tomorrow for the first time.  I have cut pussy willow branches from my yard and put them in a vase with yellow tulips.  I have put out my fancy Easter eggs in the willow basket trimmed with dried moss.  Everything is ready.  And I am waiting with an anticipation that is at once anxious and joyful for tomorrow.
