The Day After

This morning I was thinking about how today felt a like an in-between day.  Yesterday was Good Friday, tomorrow will be Easter.  What is the focus of today?  Then I started to think about the disciples and how they must have felt the day after Jesus died.  Have you ever lost someone close to you?  The day they die it all seems like a bad dream.  You're in shock and grieving and just hope that it's all a bad dream.  What about the next day?  You wake up and the reality hits you all over again, you get that sick feeling in the pit of your stomach and you realize that it was no dream at all.  The person you love is dead, gone.  You can't just pick up the phone and chat.  I'm sure the disciples felt the same way when they awoke the morning after Jesus' death.  Here was this man they followed day and night, their closest friend and he was gone.  They were afraid they would never see him again.  What they didn't know was that the story doesn't end there....
