Deb and the boys and I really enjoyed our Good Friday and Easter time... I was off for one thing (which was great!), and was able to spend some time reflecting about what my Lord did for me at Passover time when he willingly sacrificed his life and his will for my benefit.
On Friday we had a Good Friday service at church and used a rough hewn home-made cross in the service--we each wrote something on a paper and nailed it to the cross, to represent our wrongdoing, our guilt, the power of evil and selfishness in our lives, etc. And then this morning for resurrection Sunday Deb, the boys and I transformed that same cross with greenery and flowers from around our area, into a symbol of the hope and new life we have in Jesus.
