The Saturday between Good Friday and Easter is odd for me. Good Friday commemorates the crucifixion of Jesus, and Easter commemorates his resurrection. But the in-between commemorates...waiting. I have yet to find a spiritually satisfying, yet still practical way to spend this waiting day. It would be cool to spend it fasting, praying, and silent. Usually I spend it as I would any other Saturday - errands, housecleaning, etc. It's especially odd when the beauty of the weather doesn't match the solemnity of the day. And usually this Saturday is when Easter egg hunts are scheduled.

The incongruity of faith and everyday life is an ongoing struggle for me. How about for you? How do you celebrate the sacred in the midst of the mundane?
