Embracing the sad reality of Good Friday

Photo by Mr Pickle
The somber mood of Good Friday hangs like a heavy blanket over all, blocking out light and leaving us  motionless. I am taking this one day of the year, to spend the day remembering the sacrifice of Jesus.  Stations of the Cross begins in half an hour and tonight is the heartbreaking evening service.  It is a day to recognize what was the worse day any human would go through, and that He went by choice.  In spite of all fear, He went forward trusting in God's will.  Some believe that to focus too much on Good Friday is morbid, that He is resurrected and we need to look to that.  But I believe, that  we must go through the pain and sorrow of Good Friday to truly fulfill the joy of Easter Sunday, and to truly honor the fullness of this precious gift from God.

 I came into the world for this, to bear witness to the truth.
