A very Good Friday indeed!

Today is Good Friday. A lot of people have the day off and it's considered a public holiday in many countries. Even Kevin got to leave the office at around 2pm today! Woohoo! However, this holiday is a little bit different from the rest. What is Good Friday anyway? Good Friday is celebrated to remember Jesus crucifixion and death on the cross in Golgotha some two thousand years ago. Eerrr, I guess it doesn't sound all that good, right? Well, at least NOT YET. It's not the end of the story. What makes it so good is that Jesus was resurrected three days later, on Easter!! Jesus died on the cross for you and me. He didn't have to die but He did, so that we can have eternal life. That's what makes it so good!! Wanna know what else is good today?

Wellllll, our herb garden showed some signs of life! We woke up this morning to see some tiny sprouts coming out from the potting mix. Yay! How appropriate. This whole season is about new life, about Jesus dying for us and taking away our sins. Only a week ago this tiny plants were dry, hard seeds in a packet and now it's so green and alive! That reminds me of the real reason we are celebrating this season, Jesus came to earth to give us life, eternal life. :D To read more about Good Friday and about why Jesus had to die, I found a good article on Crosswalk. Just click here for the link.

Soooo, what do you think? Is Good Friday really good? Of course! Good Friday is only good because our Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ is so very good! Very very good indeed!! :D
