Chapter 4, Page 22, Book 11

The really great man is the man who makes every man feel great.

G. K. Chesterton

FANTASTIC GOOD FRIDAY/ It’s Friday. But Sunday’s a’comin’!

Of all the days of the year, this is one to show your appreciation. Good Friday is observed on the Friday before EASTER Sunday. On this day Christians commemorate the passion, or suffering, and death on the cross of the Lord, Jesus Christ. It is important for us to remember the hope of the Resurrection, the promise of newness and life, against the background of death and endings.

This holy day offers a fitting lesson to those of us who assume that good must mean happy. It is hard to imagine a day marked by sadness as a good day. Yet, despite of its sadness, Good Friday is truly good. Its sorrow is a godly sorrow. Good Friday recalls for us the greatness and wonder of God’s love .

Lenten Tip for Today: Appreciate what you have today before time forces you to appreciate what you had.

I hope that this Friday is a Fantastically GOOD one for you all!

It is always good to remember the hope of the Resurrection indeed! We know the outcome, so to speak, in what happened on that Sunday when Jesus was rose from the dead. I think often about those who were there, their grief and sadness on that Saturday before and their wonder and amazement on that Sunday when they finally understand what had happened with Jesus. What joy that must have been!

have a good one today indeed!
