Good Friday

Perhaps it's the influence of my German Lutheran roots, but Good Friday is becoming one of my favorite holy days. No Hallmark cards, no candy, no gifts – well, one immense gift (salvation), but no attempt to reduce that to a human level by wrapping up trifles in Good Friday paper bedecked with nails and thorns. It's a day that humbles me and restores my focus; it's a day I feel my insignificance and wonder at the love of our God.

I hope you all have a blessed and peaceful Easter.

Don't let Hallmark get ahold of this blog! Cards and paper with thorns and nails can't be any worse than some of the things they celebrate these days... divorce? coming out? bankruptcy? Sigh.
I agree. Good Friday is my favorite too.
