Good Friday for the Good Mama
Today is Good Friday.
Good Friday is the day Jesus died for all the sinners of this world by sacrificing His perfect life on a cruel cross.
Good Friday commemorates the day the Lord Almighty chose mankind over His beloved son thousands of years ago.
Let's face it...Good Friday is three days before Easter Sunday.
However, today could be the end of a long week filled with errands, car repairs, and PMS.
Today could be as monotonous and demanding as yesterday, and the day before that.
Today could be the day we warm up frozen pizza, kick off our shoes, and turn on the tv so we can just turn off our spinning thoughts. Good! Friday!
Today could be the day we fill 250 plastic eggs with chocolates for the hunt tomorrow.
Today could be the day we prepare for our nephew’s upcoming baptism.
Busy Mama, may I remind you of a fact so many of us easily forget?
Easter is more than a holiday for the children. It is so much more than flouncy dresses, pastel baskets, sweet surprises, salty ham, warm rolls, and green beans casserole.
I know, we are women who make special holidays super special for the special people in our lives. It's all so special - for everyone else.
Before we cook and clean and polish and plan, let us remember.
Let’s remember who we are.
We too, are special.
Let’s remember that we are woman who were once lost in sin.
Before we are wives, we are the Bride.
Before we are mothers, we are Daughters.
Before we are servants, we are Royalty.
Before we are stressed, we are forgiven.
Before we are exhausted, we are eternal.
He reminds that we are HIS before we are theirs.
He offers this special gift to His special children on this special day.
Good Mama, Good Friday is a gentle reminder that God is for you. His death is for you. His life. Is. For. You.
