Good Friday

Standard

As  Christian’s, today is the day we call Good Friday.  It is the day chosen to observe the cruisifiction of our Lord, Jesus Christ. When I was growing up I couldn’t grasp the concept of why it was called Good Friday when it represented a man being nailed to a cross and tortured until he died.  In my young eyes, there was nothing good about that. I knew killing was wrong so why did we celebrate a man dying.

Now in my later years I praise God every day for sending his son to this earth to die for my sins, so I can sit at the right hand of my father and praise him. I wrote a poem this morning called Easter Holiday which I would like to share with you.  I hope each one of you have a wonderful Holiday remembering our Lord and Savior.  Blessings to you and yours.

  1. Shirley I love this post. Beautiful poem as well as the reminder of today’s significance. We all have and do sin.we must forgive ourselves and others.

  2. Thank you so much for dropping by and leaving your lovely comment. I do appreciate. If we can’t forgive others then we can’t be forgiven. That is love. The ability to forgive one another.
