thankful friday...

this week we are thankful for:
  • a pretty good work week for both of us and interesting news about Andy’s job.  We’ll share more about it at a later date.
  • a great visit with my sister and brother-in-law!
  • beautiful warm weather!
  • my dad’s surgery (for his knee) going well on Thursday.  He should be back up and around soon and back to work and regular activity in two weeks.
  • a good relaxing weekend ahead of us with not much planned.
and on this Good Friday we are thankful for the cross.

“…death was not Jesus’ penalty; it was His destiny. It was not His lot in life; it was His mission. It was not His unavoidable fate; it was His purpose statement for coming to earth that first Christmas: ‘Born to die.’” [Bill Crowder, The Path of His Passion]

“Our old history ends with the cross; our new history begins with the resurrection.” [Watchman Nee]
