Good Friday


Today I was thinking about good Friday and I couldn't help but think about what Jesus' mother might have been thinking on this day so many years ago. Because my life centers around Bennett and Olivia, I just have to wonder what she was feeling watching him suffer. I cannot even imagine... I'd like to ask her some day. How unbelievable that she witnessed the two most important events of all time!

Jesus' mother stood near his cross. His sister was also standing there with Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene. Jesus saw his mother. He also saw the follower he loved very much standing there. He said to his mother, "Dear woman, here is your son."

John 19:25-26
