Good (?) Friday?

My eight year old daughter knows that Jesus died on the cross for her sins, but there are still some mysteries in Christ’s life that puzzle her. This week, in Palm Sunday services, she heard the term “Good Friday” and immediately questioned me a bout this seemingly inappropriate name. Why do we call this day “good” when it is the day remembering the death of the most important person in the world(God in the form of man)? What is good about that?

Read the rest of my devotion at Laced with Grace today!

What a good question. I've never thought about it. Your daughter is a smart girl.

I suppose it is good because without His death on the cross, you and I wouldn't have much to write about.

Hi Heather, I miss you blogging, is it because of the time it takes that you have tapered off?

Anyway~ I tagged you with an award...

PS I wasn't able to get Vicky to do the photos. I could tell she really wanted to, but they already had a wedding that weekend and they needed to say no.

Come for a visit. I would love to get together again and hear about life & your speaking engagement that I prayed for...
