It’s after E a s t e r
and Jesus is (not) gone…
Things aren’t working quite right….
Life is feeling more empty than full…
Unable to figure out why it feels this way,
its time, already, to recognize that on our own
we’re not who we were made to be.
The lake of each of our lives is deep- and we are not left on our own.
So in the silence of frustration, in
the stillness of the empty nets of life,
to the familiar voice
we perk up our ears,
our hearts are lifted
and we are
by Jesus’ all-embracing welcome.
Jesus said to them, “Children, you have no fish, have you?” They answered him, “No.”
He said to them, “Cast the net to the right side of the boat, and you will find some.”
So they cast it, and now they were not able to haul it in because there were so many fish. John 21:5-6
