A Good, Good Friday

Last night Mr. J and I attended a Passover Seder that was put on by one of my past students. It was a delightful evening of remembering and celebrating and I was grateful to be invited and share in the festivities and the feelings. Though my Jewish friends might cringe at the thought of Passover being a celebration of Jesus Christ, that is what it is for me. Because of Jesus Christ, whose crucifixion we remember today, the heavy consequences of sin will Passover you and me if we accept His sacrifice.

I know that Jesus Christ is the Messiah and that He died for me. I am so grateful for that knowledge and the peace and joy it brings into my life. I love my Savior and hope you all will take a moment this day to remember what Good Friday commemorates--especially remember why it is Good.

I love reading your peaceful, loving comments of the Savior. This time of year, I love thinking about His Resurrection. What joy there must have been that day as those who loved him learned, He is not dead!

I love that aspect of the Passover that is given to us through Christ's Atonement. Hope you have a wonderful Easter weekend watching General Conference. :)
