This weekend is my favorite of the entire year. I have always loved spring and Easter. As I grew older the true meaning of the weekend became more and more clear. Along with that came a deepening in my love for this weekend.
As I was boiling eggs to color tonight and
and looking at the bunny decor on the kitchen counter
I couldn't help but think of the real reason we celebrate Good Friday.
My long time friend summed it up better then I ever could.
"Today is Good Friday!! Better than any other Friday because it is when we remember and celebrate what Jesus did for each and every one of us when He died on the cross so we may live. Not good for Him but great for us. It is Friday and that meant death for Him but we must remember that Sunday is coming and that means LIFE for us!! Peace and Love to all." ~ Pastor Jim Clark*
I hope you are taking time to enjoy the simple moments!
