Good Friday.

July, 2012: Resharing this post HERE.

I'll admit, the name "Good Friday" on the day we remember Jesus' crucifixion seems odd.  A brutal execution isn't "good."  Sad Friday, Hopeless Friday, perhaps, but Good?

In light of Easter, yes, Good Friday is good.  Good Friday recognizes that we walk through hopelessness to arrive in a place of hope.  I'm reminded that good and easy aren't the same thing.  In this broken world, there is still hope.

Today, I'm taking my baby to an appointment at the same hospital where she stayed in the NICU, and where she had her broken heart repaired.  Today, I'm remembering that good and difficult aren't mutually exclusive.

From hopelessness to hope... We'll be celebrating Easter this weekend.

Happy Friday!

  3. I love what you wrote about good and easy not being the same thing. Absolutely true.
