Company Girl Coffee 4.10 Good Friday


Welcome, Rachel Anne's Company Girls! I can't chat long this morning, I have a long list today, but I just wanted to say Hi! We are looking forward to spending time praising God this weekend for sending his Son to earth to die on a lowly cross for our sins! Praise God for such a sacrificial display of love, and a free gift of eternal life! When I was very young, I always thought it was was dumb that they called it "Good" Friday. I always thought it should be called Sad Friday! But as I've grown, Wow, when it comes to eternal perspective, Wow! What a great day! I am so thankful for a loving and just God. It is so easy to get lost in the Easter Grass and jelly beans, and lose focus of Why it is, exactly, we are celebrating this weekend. I strive to focus on the TRUE meaning of Easter. Have a blessed weekend!

Tricia, have a wonderful Easter weekend! I loved reading your short blog today -- absolutely perfect!

Good blog Tricia!! So many people forget the reason for the holiday. I mentioned in my blog that it seems to me like Easter should be the most important holiday, not Christmas...(although Christmas is obviously very important, too).

Have a blessed Easter!

Happy EAster!!!
I used to think the same thing about Good Friday. I also remember wondering why my grandfather cried when he played Amazing Grace over and over.

My favorite part of Easter...knowing the worst did indeed happen, yet He lives! It gives me great hope when my own life hits those hills!
hugs and Happy Easter!!

Hope you had a wonderful Easter! I'm with you...it's the best holiday. We had an incredible Good Friday service at our church, just focused on Jesus.
