Saturday Between

Most years I keep this Saturday between Good Friday and Easter as a quiet day.  One marked by the waiting and wondering.

This year is totally different.

At 1:00 I will attend the wedding ceremony of some dear friends from my house church.

At 3:30 I will write a final examination in Latin American History.  (This, at least, I ruefully admit, will be covered in prayer, since it is not a topic I feel like I have a strong grasp of.)

As soon as I finish my exam, I'll be heading back across the city to attend the wedding reception (at which I'll likely arrive late, thanks to an overlap in the end of my exam and the beginning of the reception.)  I'll spend the evening celebrating.

It's a different way to spend this quiet, in between day, celebrating, and studying, but I'm very much looking forward to it (well, other than the exam I suppose!)  To living in a joyful place, waiting for tomorrow morning and joyfully preparing for resurrection.
