Good Friday

I read this on Twitter this morning:
Today is GOOD. It's good because today death died. And when death dies ALL things live.
Beautiful, isn't it? Yet... how should we, as Christ-followers, live? This prayer sums it up...
Father God, You bless. It is the essence of who You are, the God who so love, He gave... And You bless with all manner of goodness and happiness, when we follow Your counter-culture, radical ways. Before His crucifixion, Your Son answered the interrogating Pilate, "My Kingdom is not of this world." Jesus' sermon on the Mount not only testifies to this truth, but invites us into His Kingdom too. Father, we gather around You and ask You to teach us how to live as Your citizens. Citizens of the upside-down kingdom.

~ Ann Voskamp, Trail To The Tree {Day 11: Upside Down Kingdom}.
Blessings to you, friends... on this Good Friday!
This is my prayer... that our family may live as those who are poor, as those who mourn, as those who are humble, who hunger and thirst for justice, who are merciful, whose hearts are pure, who work for peace, who are persecuted for doing right... for God blesses this counter-cultural, radical way of living.

Unwrapping more of His love in this world.
Act justly.  Love mercy.  Walk humbly with God!


  1. Love that tweet! As Christians, we should be living like that everyday, yes?

    Have a blessed Easter!

    1. Yes, each and every-day! ♥

      Happy Easter to your beautiful family, Deborah.
