When doubts filled my mind, You comfort game me renewed hope and cheer. (NLT)
As I sat here at 12:15 in the a.m. scrolling through my head on what to write, thinking of my friend that I lost so long ago and how I dream of her weekly, that we are just talking and realizing that I miss her so, my mind goes numb....not knowing on where to being this. Which is why I am probably publishing it while the moon is bright out...
This song came on Pandora and it sort of struck something in me
Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him. For we know that since Christ was raised from the dead, he cannot die again; death no longer has mastery over him. The death he died, he died to sin once for all; but the life he lives, he lives to God. In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus. (NIV)
I didn't do a post on Friday, need to apologize for not getting the linky party up (it's coming later today!)and Saturday. Life gets in the way and lately it has been more in the way than ever. Friday I always get in a funk. Not every Friday, just seems like Good Friday I do.
"We may say that on the first Good Friday afternoon was completed that great act by which light conquered darkness and goodness conquered sin. That is the wonder of our Saviour's crucifixion."- Phillips Brooks
Seems like things seem to happen on Good Friday. In case you haven't noticed or I have failed to mention before, I am a numbers person. Numbers and cars person to be exact. I remember what everyone drives (weird, I know), but I can't remember their name and can't for the life of me explain the numbers. God knows I hate numbers, but dates, phone numbers and such stick in my head.
Getting back to Good Friday, we have lost people in our lives that have meant so much...is it weird that it has happened on this day? Makes ya think... We have both lost our best friends and a sibling. The hub's sister passed and the hub's lifelong best friend had a horrific accident on this day, years later, and went into a coma. He passed in August 2010. Watching the hubs and these events has been absolutely heartbreaking. Other odd things have happened that make you sit and think. That's usually how it goes, just thinking about all that has happened and where you are because of it and since it has happened. Debbie Downer, yeah I know...
When you are sorrowful, look again in your heart and you shall see that, in truth, you are weeping for that which has been your delight.
I know I am not focusing on what I should be on this day, do you get like this? The past year or so have been better, just kind of a bummer when you get some quite time. Anywho...
Ready to move on. Looking forward to heading to Easter service, hearing the message from our rockin' pastor and I love watching my kids delight in hunting eggs and hanging with the fam.
Matthew 28:5-75 The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. 6 He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. 7 Then go quickly and tell his disciples: ‘He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him.’ Now I have told you.”
Today will be a good day, I can feel it ;) Hoping you and yours have a wonderful Easter.
