Bu I just feel funny doing anything but talking about what the day is
The heartache before the joy - the tears before the smiles - the brokenness before the wholeness
The day Jesus was crucified ... died... for no sin he committed.
Jesus called out with a loud voice, "Father, into your hands I commit my spirit"
When he had said this, he breathed his last.
Good Friday always just tugs at my heart. Makes me so sad to think of the events that happened.
I can't even stand to watch "The Passion of the Christ" because it's just so violent - so hard to take in - hard to watch anyone go through that much pain.
I'm talking about ANYONE... much less the Son of God.
But Thank God for His scripture & his words that reminds us that:
Weeping may last through the night
- but joy comes with the morning
& what a morning it was...
That man who everyone saw beaten, had nails driven through his flesh, had been speared in the side... THAT man was alive & walking around & talking with people...
Everything he said was truth....
I just love Easter ... everything it stands for... everything it is.... all the reminder of the HOPE we have
I hope you all have a wonderful Easter weekend, celebrating out RISEN SAVIOR!!!
I know its always a solemn time, but I always want to give a big Arsenio Hall arm circle-fist-pump thing & scream out! WHOOP WHOOP WHOOP!!!!
(If I were back in the time, I'd be the loud disciple that they wouldn't write about in the Bible... I'm sure of it)
Doesn't it pump you up too? Its worth celebrating! That's for sure!
When we read the Passion during Palm Sunday's gospel reading, there are sections that the congregation reads. One of them is when the crowd said, "Crucify him." I just can't bring myself to say those words.ReplyDelete
