Hello family & friends!
This Easter holiday is going to be much different for all of us. We most likely won’t be spending it with our loved ones having the usual family dinner. The kids won’t be having their Easter egg hunt with all their cousins and friends.
I’m going to miss Easter dinner with my parents and brothers. However, I will be celebrating at home with my man and our son.
Today is Good Friday, a very special day to all of mankind. Today is a day to remember and be grateful for what Jesus did for us all those years ago. He gave his life so that we may live. Jesus was perfect in every way and without sin. The anguish he must have felt when he took all of the world’s sins upon himself is too much for anyone to bear.
My parents brought me up knowing exactly what Easter stood for. It’s not about Easter bunnies and chocolate. I think it’s ok to let little children believe in the magic of it all until they are old enough to know the difference. I don’t want to take that away from my son. With that being said though, my son will know the truth behind Easter, the real reason to celebrate. He will be brought up knowing God and all that he has done for us.
Thanks to electronics, I will be watching a Good Friday sermon live with my parents. We will be taking communion at home. I know we may not actually be at church but God knows why we will be celebrating and taking communion on remembrance of Him.
This coronavirus situation has changed the way I’ve been thinking. It has given me time to get back to the Lord, start praying daily again and sharing God’s word with my man.
I have realized I take things for granted. We usually have dinner with my parents every Saturday. During lockdown that definitely isn’t happening. I worry about my parents, I can only pray that God protects them from this horrible virus. I have used this time to talk to my mom on the phone everyday. I think this coronavirus and everything surrounding it has brought my mom back to where she used to be in her faith. I hear joy in her voice now, a joy that I know all too well.
I notice that more people on social media are posting scriptures and Godly pictures. It’s sad that we all needed this life or death experience to bring us back to where we need to be. Grateful and standing strong in our Faith.
Jesus took the wrap for all of us, so that we don’t all get condemned and sent to hell. It saddens me that my sin was also tossed upon his shoulders. To show that I’m grateful I will strive to do God’s will and not my own.
Lord, I pray that you heal the world of this Coronavirus, comfort those who have lost someone due to this horrible virus. Lord, I ask that you continue guiding me in all my decisions. Lord I thank you for all that you have done and for your never ending mercy. Jesus, I thank you for taking my sins from me so that I may Live. Lord I ask all of this in your precious name. Amen!!!
Happy Good Friday!
One Blessed Momma
