A Reflection on Good Friday


Trail of Lights


Sunday Easter we’ll go to the tomb

and the stone will be rolled away.

Funeral shrouds folded, unused,

‘He is not here,’ the angels will say.

But today I’m in a garden

of herbs bitter and sweet;

for it’s a Friday of the soul

and on Golgotha we must meet.

Someday we’ll walk to the old graveyard,

and find that bodies did not stay.

Heaven’s curtains shall fold back

old wounds be washed away.

But today, our backs are bleeding.

The empty house more than we can bear,

and the tears we spill on Golgotha’s hill

remind us of the Savior who died there.

– For Rachel

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and strength...to love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in it...as hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
