Grateful me

Today is good Friday....wonder why they call it good Friday??? when such a horrific thing happened to the creator of the universe, the Savior of the world. I guess it is because it is so "good" for us. Where would we be? This afternoon, I got on youtube to listen to a song our praise team is doing this Sunday. The person who posted the song had embedded it in a clip of the Passion of the Christ. Wow! I had seen it before at the movie theatre and it made me cry like no other movie. My family and I were silent as we made our way out of the theatre and then went on to the restaurant. I even remember where we went - Abuelos. None of us were really very hungry, but as we soaked in what we had seen, I think we all were thinking the same thing....THANK YOU JESUS! I can't imagine what life would be like without Him - if God the Father had decided to "let this cup pass." These days, it seems that His name, for some, is used in vain. This angers me so much, but I realize that He died for those people too. They just haven't seen Him, or heard Him call them as I have, and possibly you. Anyway, happy Good Friday. Isn't God good?

Savior I come, quiet my soul, remember
redemptions hill, where Your blood was spilled
for my ransome
everything I once held dear
I count it all as lost
Lead me to the cross where Your love poured out
Bring me to my knees Lord, I lay me down
Rid me of myself, I belong to you
Oh Lead me, Lead me to the cross.

enough said!
