‘Remember Christ on this “Good Friday”‘
“The dripping blood our only drink,
The bloody flesh our only food:
In spite of which we like to think
That we are sound, substantial flesh and blood–
Again, in spite of that, we call this Friday good.”
TS Eliot (The Four Quartets)

GOOD fRIDAY in my heart! Fear & affright
My thoughts are the Disciples when they fled
My words the words that priest & soldier said
My deed the spear to desecrate the dead
Good friday marks the slaying of our Jesus
The unblemished lamb, the perfect sacrifice.
He took our guilt and blame upon Himself
So we could be with Him in paradise showed us the way
He showed us the way
He has long been gone
And yet in our hearts
His name shines on….
Wish u a Holy Friday!
I know Jesus is with you
But I’ll also be there for you
Whenever you need me
Have a blessed Good-Friday!
May the glory of our Savior
And May His Graces
Shine Upon u
On Good Friday & always!
