Good Friday Favorites


friday favorite things | finding joy

Today is Good Friday...when Jesus paid the Ultimate sacrifice for you and for me.  On this day (and everyday) I am working on absorbing what that means for me and how that brings Him Glory.  As I stop to Be Still today I take the time to be thankful...

Spontaneous kisses from my two favorite little people

Bill Cosby (Rondell just told me that he was in town yesterday)...love him

Sleeping in

Friends who come to pick me up and take me to work (thanks Lyndsey!)
 
The unleavened bread...pierced, striped, without yeast (sin)...representative of Christ

I am so grateful today Kelli! That Christ continues to breathe undeserved grace into my life... the cross, my family, my friends, and people that inspire me greatly (YOU).

Have a blessed weekend!

I just ate my fish sandwich at Wendy's today:) I have been watching some of my Good Friday video's. I woke up grateful today, spent the day with Andrew and the kids. I get to spend the evening with my grandfather and two of our good friends got the news they have been needing to hear--they got jobs. God is so good sister! I am so grateful for all He has brought into my life--including YOU! It's Friday girl-but Sunday is coming! BTW--we will be at early service. Will you be there? May we sit with you?

What a great post! I love reading these because it helps to remember little things that I don't even think about...that I need to be more aware of! Happy Easter! May you be blessed as much as you've blessed us with your thankful words!
