Good Friday, everyone.
Today, I’m taking a breather from the blog. I’ve got a long weekend. I plan to do some writing. I’m going to mow my worship guy’s grass because he jacked up his knee. I may even motivate myself to start painting the living room. Probably won’t eat any peeps. If I’m given any, they’re going into the microwave.
Remember this Good Friday, that it was only good in retrospect. The original Good Friday was pretty dang awful. And in the midst of all that awfulness, which no one could see past, God’s beautiful plan was coming to fruition.
Maybe you’re having just an awful day…or week…or year. But maybe in retrospect, you’ll see how God’s beautiful plan was unfolding all along, even when things seemed their worst.
Today, I’ll share with you a few of the blog posts I’ve got starred on my blog reader. They are amazing. Go read them.
Is Easter Too Violent for Children? – Russell Moore – When you’re done looking for pastel colored eggs, remember that the Easter story is about a gruesome, offensive execution, and a mangled corpse coming back to life.
In the Cleft of the Rock – Alece Ronzino – It’ll take you ten seconds to read this. And somehow, Alece has said more than I’ve said all week.
Saying No After Saying Yes – Mandy Steward – Let your yes be yes, and your no be no…unless you promise to make a balloon panda for someone.
The Before and After – Ben Arment – A new version of you is now available.
When I Am God – Tim Challies – Amazing.
Have a great Easter, everyone! What are you doing to celebrate?
