Good Friday

Easter seems to get more and more ignored as the years pass. The majority of my students have to work on Saturday. I keep forgetting it's Easter. Of course, part of that could be that I no longer attend a traditional church. We don't meet on Sundays. My small group will meet tonight but we're converting our normal time of study into a 30th birthday party for our assistant pastor.

It could also be that we spend so much time and effort celebrating Christmas that we just sort of forget about Easter. After all, Christmas really covers it but in a nicer more palatable sort of way. Or maybe it's just Southern California. Or maybe it's because I don't have little kids that this is the way I perceive things.

In any case, I hope you have some time to reflect on the absolutely mind blowing phenomenal meaning of this day, when Jesus laid down the righteous life He lived in our place, and took the sin and death we earned.

"Love so amazing, so divine, demands my soul, my life, my all." Isaac Watts

a beautifully fitting quote, Amy. Good Friday is such an almost bland name for such a day, isn't it? Such love, such courage and suffering. . and such a result!!!! wow.
