Good Friday

MENTAL STATUS: "Happy". Hubby's home from work. Going to an Easter Egg hunt on Saturday and I don't have to cook on Sunday. Yay!

For those of you who aren't Christian, today is Good Friday--not just a day when the stock market closes and children are home from school.

This is the day on which Jesus was crucified outside the walls of Jerusalem, at the top of the Calvary hill. The Christian belief is that Jesus sacrificed himself for the men's sins. This day is marked by solemn observations in memory of Jesus' crucifixion. For, by dying, Jesus accomplished a reconciliation between God and man.



So, now that you've had your Christian religion lesson, I'm going to go and relax, take the "day off" myself and spend some time with the family.

We'll see if I take time off from writing and totally relax, though. In the words of Bart Simpson, "I can't promise I'll try, but I'll try to try."

Have a blessed and happy Easter weekend.

My oldest had school today to make up for all the snow days. Then he has to go to his Dad's house who is Catholic but doesn't practice his religion. But he refuses to let me have him so he can go to church. But my family will indeed have a very blessed weekend, I hope you do as well.

Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. - Good Friday
