jannelle.althoff I remember walking to little man ice-cream with my little one year old when it first opened... now she's ten and big and little man has a ridiculous long line. But it's still delicious! 17h

jannelle.althoff My baby snuggled into my bed early this morning before leaving on her camping/rafting trip for school. Some tears and extra hugs this morning (for both of us), but I know she will come home with a smile and stories to share. Keep her in your prayers! 2d
  •   natbostow I just wanted to say that I love seeing your kid go on RMSEL trips! It makes me miss my RMSEL days so much! And trust me your child will walk away from RMSEL with more then you could ever imagine. 2d

jannelle.althoff It's good to have days, just the two of us with no kids. We snuck into the zoo where we discovered the way to the bell tower we've always been curious about, followed with aimless/exploring driving and being reminded that we really are best friends and lovers. 1mon
  •   ladybird_rose First I want to know how you snuck in. Then I want to know how you got to the bell tower. 1mon
  •   jannelle.althoff @ladybird_rose sneaking in was sort of anti climatic... I just walked in. I desperately needed to use the restroom and couldn't wait in line ;) the bell tower is Will Rogers shrine, you drive through the zoo to get to it :) miss you! 1mon
  •   vivagregorio @ladybird_rose - for the record, I gladly paid. 1mon

jannelle.althoff "Holy Saturday (sometimes called Black Saturday). This is when the Christian tradition reflects on the aimlessness, fear, mourning, confusion and broken faith that Jesus’ disciples must have experienced when, on Friday, they watched their God/teacher/friend be murdered without a clue as to what would happen next. Sunday had not yet come. The tomb was most assuredly not empty. Had they been lied to? Were they stupid? Would they pay for their allegiance? Where was God, now? Was he ever real? How could something so evil happen to someone so good? We-all of humanity-constantly revisit our own Saturdays.

If you are a Christian of any denomination, you probably know in your heart and believe in your mind that Sunday is coming…that Christ will rise and Alleluias will pour forth. Put that aside, even for a bit of time, today. Choose to identify with our brothers and sisters, both inside and outside the Church, whose lives are suspended in a perpetual Holy Saturday. Whatever they have believed to be true no longer is. Whatever comfort or identity they have had, it is gone. Whomever had been the object of their deepest affection has been taken from them. The redemption they had tasted has been stolen and replaced with bitterness and shock. Things are not hopeful. For them, Sunday means nothing. Everything is Saturday.

This is as much a part of the story of Christ’s redemption as is the Crucifixion or Resurrection. We celebrate a God-man who chose to abandon status and comfort and experience this life alongside us. As Jesus chose to identify with us in our deepest fear and despair, entities that bore their most potent fruit on that Saturday, may we choose to do the same with our world. No sugarcoating, no “Sunday is coming!”….share in their questioning of where God is, or if the reality of God is even a possibility. Earn the right to share Sunday with others by being with them on Saturday. Because maybe YOU are going to bring Sunday to them. All things new. Brokenness to healing. Despair to exuberant joy. Saturday to Sunday."
