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.

Easter Holiday

Remember our Lord’s sacrifice

Taking the sins of mankind

While hanging on the cross

Forgive them Father

Last words spoken

Forgiveness

For all

SAVED

About shirleymclain930

I am a retired RN enjoying my retirement to the fullest. I like adventure and travel and making friends. I have 7 dogs and 1 cat. They are like having a house full of three years olds. Now for the rest of the story. My Granddaughter and her husband now live with us and they have 4 dogs and 4 cats along with a giant Flemish Rabbit. They are a large part of my life and I can't imagine them not being around. I spend most of my time sitting in front of my computer working on my latest book or talking about Essential Oils. On the personal side, I'm married to a wonderful man who spoils me and I love it. I am very much a country girl. I love living on our 5 acres on Pole Cat Creek watching the deer and other animals occasionally stick their​ heads out of the trees. It's a fun life.
