I wonder what Jesus felt like on his three day weekend?
This weekend is about the longest break I've had from a schedule that makes me wake up, eat breakfast, work for 7 hours, come home, eat, go to rehearsal for three hours, come home, eat and go to bed. it's a busy life, but I am enjoying it. Jesus probably had it harder. After the Passion I bet it was a relief to go open the gates of Hell. After having to "suspend" his divine power for a while, he could show what he was REALLY made of.
On weekends like this, I like making things, creating things, writing, composing, drawing. If creativity is a participation in the work of God (opere dei), I too can show what I'm really made of.
I already fixed the lawn mower.
I may have to cut the lawn, but a weekend also gives me the opportunity to discover God in creativity. For that I am thankful.
Before Monday evening I have to a) record some music b) draft and abstract for a paper proposal and c) Design something. it's not quite Opening the Gates of Hell, but it's something.
