Good Friday

I'm playing catch up again, thanks to taking the weekend off to focus on Easter.  Friday was Good Friday, and blessings came in two forms.

First, we had a brief playdate at a friend's apartment complex and pool.  This was a blessing because it gave me a chance to spend some time with my "girls" (prayer group) and then relax with my family in the sun.   I even got to watch this little boy - who's been terrified of swimming without a life jacket - bravely venture into the pool to try and learn to swim.  He's almost got it!

This blessing was followed by some down time at home, and then a chance to go to church to remember the events of the very first Good Friday.  In the Catholic Church, this typically is a service during which the Passion of our Lord is read, and then we, as a congregation, venerate the Cross.  It was beautiful.  I was brought to tears multiple times, which is a blessing on Good Friday.
