Although my daily blogging for Lent and Easter is over I am still finding wonderful stuff… here is a piece from Cheryl at hold this space which encapsulates in a few lines the grace and redemption of Easter:
They call today Good Friday
but what could make this day good?
if you have ever believed that love inevitably leads to betrayal
this day says it doesn’t.
if you have ever believed that some people are unlovable, irredeemable
this day says they aren’t.
if you have ever believed that there is a limit to forgiveness
this day says there isn’t.
if you have ever believed you aren’t worth saving
this day says you are.
if you have ever believed that you don’t deserve freedom
this day says you do.
if you have ever believed that fear, anger, hate and despair will always win
this day says it won’t.
this day is good for you.
