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.
