I wonder what he thought about, when he got up that morning.
Did he go outside before anyone else was up, lean against the house, watch the sunrise, think, "Only a few more morning skies like that?"
When he went back indoors, was it Mary who was up, preparing breakfast, while Martha slept, worn out from her labors the night before?
Did he place the wooden bowl of fruit on the table, take the bread from her hands? Look at it longingly?
Perhaps he said to her, "I'm not sure that I can do this."
And perhaps she said, "Take and eat. This is the bread of angels, and you will make of it the bread of life"
And did they sit down and share a last breakfast together?
