TITLE: Silence in the Garden

There was a silence in the garden
In the early morning hours
before the sun brought
the glow of golden light
and a warmth to take the chill away.
Even the birds were silent,
no announcing songs promising
the beginning of a new day.
It were as if all things of nature
waited in silent anticipation
for the promise of God,
to all mankind,
to be fulfilled as the stone
was rolled away.
We know of the sorrow
of the women who went
to the tomb;
We know of their meeting
Him there
and the joy as they
gave the message to the others.
We share that joy when we
come to Him, asking forgiveness
for our sin,
for He truly does forgive.
Our voices can be heard
as we tell of His love and grace,
as we sing songs of praise,
as we lift our prayers
to the foot of His throne.
But what about the things
of nature?
When the birds began to
sing, did they now bring
forth a new song?
What of the rocks and trees,
the rivers, oceans, and streams,
all things created by the hand of God.
Did they too rejoice for the Risen Lord?
One can only imagine the beauty
of the song, maybe sung in perfect
harmony as though coming forth
from a mighty pipe organ.
But in truth, this is only speculation
for it is we who need tell of His
wondrous love;
for His absolute forgiveness;
for His answers to our prayers;
for His constant presence
as He walks with us each hour of the day;
for His divine guidance as we seek
the direction He would have us serve.
All nature waited in the silence
of the garden,
waiting in anticipation,
not for the Risen Savior
but rather for the songs sung
in praise by lowly man.
