The Antidote for Saudade


The garden tomb was empty,

But that didn’t mean

Jesus wasn’t still here.

Footprints left in the dust

atop cloudy Olivet,

Didn’t mean our Lord

was no longer near.

The breakfast coals

on Galilee’s sandy shore

burn hot still there.

And the promised Spirit,

though no longer flickers

visible over said heads,

God’s flame speaks volumes,

still pouring from our hearts,

Reminding us, as He said:

“…and lo, I am with you

even to the end of the age.”



Matthew 28:1-20

Acts 1-2

John 21:1-14
