Thoughts: I couldn’t sleep that night. In the early morning darkness, I got up, dressed, and then hurried to Jesus’ tomb. I knew a huge stone had been rolled against the opening of the tomb, and I had heard soldiers were posted outside the tomb. Probably, I couldn’t even get near the tomb, but I felt compelled to go there. I needed to be close to Jesus’ poor lacerated body. But when I came near enough to see, the stone had been rolled away. And there were no soldiers. The stillness was absolute. No early birds chirped; no rabbits slipped through the dewy grass. I was alone in the darkness, and I was afraid.
