Then they returned, and prepared spices and ointments. On the sabbath they rested according to the commandment. - Luke 23:56
Through this long, sad day the band of believers stayed together and prepared to further honor His dying. There seems to be no evidence that they thought He would rise again. If so, they all would have been planning to go to the tomb. Only the women, deprived of giving Jesus their last offering of a proper burial, are readying things. The others are locked in their grief.
We know the end of the story. These disciples don’t, as yet. Let us pray with them for the unknown tomorrow.
