It's Friday but Sunday's coming!

A couple years ago right before Easter I attened a funeral for a friend's mom and the pastor had the best message, "It's Friday, but Sunday's coming!"

Meaning, life is so dark, so hard, so painful, so full of suffering right now just as it must have been for those who watched Jesus die on the cross that Friday, but we as Christians now know that dark Friday was followed by the glorious joy of Sunday when Jesus rose from the dead!

While Jesus was hanging on the cross He promised one of the criminals hanging next to him that, "Today you shall be with Me in Paradise." Luke 23:43

We, as believers, have that same promise that one day we will be with Jesus in Paradise! So, no matter how dark and unbearable Friday is, Sunday's coming!

Praise God for that tremendous hope!

Glory to God, too, for the magic of the plug-in wireless internet thingy (that is the technical term, by the way) that is allowing me to post this while in-route to Oklahoma to visit family!

And God has out done himself with these Texas wildflowers! We just stopped and got pictures of the kids in the biggest field of bluebonnets I've ever seen in my entire life!

We spotted the cars by the side of the road and the gorgeous field, so of course, we did a U-turn and hauled the kids out on the side of the interstate and plopped them right down in that field of bluebonnets for pictures. Somebody will have a rash tomorrow, but the pictures were worth it!!

Have a blessed Easter! I won't post again until Monday or Tuesday!
