It is a time to remember the sacrifice that Christ laid out for us. Trading himself for our sins. A good day for us all.
I know today I’ve had a good day this Good friday, I was reminded by the cause of the day but in general its been a good day. I spent most of it out in the sun enjoying the heat – got up to around 26’C outside – it was lovely. Glad I brought my sun cream with me, I felt like I was cooking in a nice way.
I spent most of the afternoon reading, I don’t often read books – not for pleasure – usually to find something out, so solve a problem, not just stop, relax and read but thats what i’ve been up to. The book is around 200 pages, and I’ve passed the half way mark today. I’m a slow reader usually so its a real success for me.
I went to see some films later. I went alone, I had no one around that I could go with and went to see a film I’d wanted to see but hadn’t seen. I found a strange thing happen.
While there waiting for the film to commence and people to get seated, I talked with people – No idea who they were and it felt fine doing so. Chatting about litterally anything and it was good. I find this strange as when with people I know, the confidence seems to seep away yet go somewhere I know no-one and suddenly I can talk to anyone about anything. I need to switch that around a little but to know that I can do it sometimes means its something I should be able to do whenever.
So anyhow, Please remember Good Friday for what it is. A memory of change for us all. Christ Jesus dying on a cross to save us from sin and in a couple of days – we remember He rises again on Easter.
