Good Friday

Matthew 26: 39--
And he went a little further, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt.

Thank you Lord Jesus for your ultimate sacrifice. Thank you for seeking the will of God for your life & laying that of your own will aside.  Thank you for the glorious example you have given to me in that in order to seek the will of God for my life,  I must fall upon my face to my Father in heaven.  I must let my desires, my wants, my wishes, my dreams--my WILL-- fall away & accept HIS will for my life.  Thank you Lord, for hanging on that cross, so that my sinful self could be set free.  Thank you for your forgiveness to me.

It's a dreary, gloomy day outside today, & I can't help but find it quite fitting.  I don't think it is a coincidence that the Lord is using it as a reminder to me of what happened on this day so many, many years ago.  Today I reflect on what Jesus Christ did for me & though my heart is heavy, it is equally as full.

With Easter approaching in just a couple of days, we are really getting all geared up for it here around here!  We are anticipating a beautiful weekend full of Easter traditions--spending time surrounded by family, dyeing Easter eggs, baking & cooking delicious Easter goodies,  Easter egg hunts out in the yard, & celebrating the resurrection of our Lord & Savior!

Hope you have some beautiful celebrations in store as well!
