raised (luke 7:11–17)

whenever Jesus raises someone
from the dead in the gospels,
I always wonder what that person did
the next day.

did they quit their job?

were they grateful?
were others jealous?
were they believed?

did they get a haircut,
hug their children,
their lover or their parents?

did they still quarrel with their
neighbors, drink too much,
harbor resentments,
or wish they were

did they stop
beating their servants?

did they talk about it -
or was there just no explaining?

did they fear death any longer –
or was the mystery now

only greater?
