It is a miserable weather day today. Drizzly, windy, overcast- sombre is a good adjective to use here.
It is Good Friday! For many 'just another day'. For believers - a day of remembrance.
Like Christmas when the birth of Jesus is commemorated - today we christians remember his crucifixion.
Does it affect our day to day 'doings?' Not sure. For me it isn't a day to go out and about shopping or washing my windows. It isn't a 'dark day' either - but I keep myself reasonable relaxed- my thoughts returning regularly to THAT EVENT which gives it's name to today - Good Friday.
Because despite the sad event - it is GOOD NEWS. Hard for the not religious minded to grasp maybe - but for those of us who believe in the resurrection- GREAT NEWS in fact.
Yesterday - Holy Thursday, we re-enact and /or remember the last supper. Being servant to all. That no-one is superior. That there is a servant in all of us regardless of rank or stature.
Today, Good Friday - a remembrance to us humans that we are worth saving. Worth dying for.
Tomorrow- a day of anticipation. Of grief and realising the loss - of someone we love.
Easter- THE event to JUMP for JOY for. Resurrection - a NEW BEGINNING!
A new opportunity to MAKE GOOD!
To make a fresh start. Hope for the future and new life!
