Good Friday

Last night, as we said our family prayers together, before bed, I prayed of how I'm not worthy of the enormous amount of love that God has for me, that He would give His one and only Son just so that I (and all the world) could be washed clean. I included my gratitude, naturally. This, of course, made for an emotional prayer from mommy, so when I opened my eyes there were three little ones who were looking on with confused and sad eyes. I explained that there was nothing to be sad about. God believes that we are worthy, because we are His children. He doesn't have to give it a second thought. As a parent, I understand that completely. Knowing that Jesus physically suffered horribly and took/takes full responsibility for my sin, though, is a little harder for me to swallow. I am humbled by His grace.

Today on this Good Friday, just as I do every day that I am blessed with breath, I thank God for His amazing, unfailing love.

The video is one of my favorite bands, singing one of my favorite songs! Couldn't be more appropriate for this fabulous Good Friday! Enjoy. >:0)




Third Day

Thief

I am a thief, I am a murderer
Walking up this lonely hill
What have I done? I don't remember
No one knows just how I feel
and I know that my time is coming soon.
It's been so long. Oh, such a long time
Since I've lived with peace and rest
Now I am here, my destination
guess things work for the best
and I know that my time is coming soon
Who is this man? This man beside me
They call the King of the Jews
They don't believe that He's the Messiah
But, somehow I know it's true.
And they laugh at Him in mockery,
and beat Him till he bleeds
They nail Him to the rugged cross,
and raise Him, they raise Him up next to me
My time has come, I'm slowly fading
I deserve what I receive
Jesus when You are in Your kingdom
Could You please remember me
and He looks at me still holding on
the tears fall from His eyes
He says I tell the truth
Today, you will live with Me in paradise
and I know that my time is coming soon
and I know paradise is coming soon
