'Twas the Night Before Easter!

                                

'Twas the Night Before Easter!

(a Christian parody at Peggie's Place!)

by Peggie C. Bohanon

'Twas the night before Easter on internet Lane;
From New York, to Russia, spring Holidaze reigned!
Computers were linking from Disney to space;
And folks were resolving the Easter Egg
  case!

The kids were entranced by a techno-theme,,
While visions of dino's
appeared on the screen!
And Mom dyed the eggs while I searched
the Net,
For 
flowers to send her--or in trouble I'd get!!

When swiftly, my Mac began such a clatter,
The mouse
 shrieked in horror, "
MS Explorer", what's the matter!"
Away to my 
windo
w I jumped with great speed;
A break for sore eyes
  I surely did need!

I saw flowers of spring beginning to bloom,
I welcomed the view from my 
compute
r room!
When what to my wondering
eye
s did I see,
But a stranger
stooped low, on bended knee.

With a quick glance I knew 'twas a backflash of time,
I envisioned the form of my
Savio
r Divine.
More rapid than eagles, my memory raced,
To another time and another place.

Where Christ,  Lord of all, called each one by name--
"Follow Me," was His Word, and they willingly came.
They watched Him perform deeds of wondrous
love;                                               They knew His power came from God above.

Yet we (you and me, folks!) just led him to die, In the dark of a tomb our Savior did lie.
But then in another flash of great power,
I saw Him
arise--death conquered the hour. 

He was robed all in white, with radiant glow;
He stood in great splendor,
this
savior I know,
His eyes with 
lovin
g compassion shown,
knew in that moment I need ne'er be alone.

His hands were outstretched as this One bid me come;
The work of redemption forever done.
I stood there in silence, in humble awe,
As the 
Reason for Easter I now clearly saw.

Then quickly as the scenes had appeared,
They faded--I felt not one moment of fear.
I bowed low in worship; earth's sight now so dim;
I had seen Easters meaning
; I had been there with Him.

As I saw Him, with faiths eyes, lifted above,
The night before 
Easte
r was filled with pure love.
And I heard him exclaim as He rose out of sight,
"A Blessed
Easter to all! I have conquered your night!"
