If you follow my Other Posts of Note, you may have already seen the Sunday's Coming video. And, as I was reminded again this morning: Good Friday is only good in retrospect.
This week has been long and difficult. But today, here at the end of the work week, things seem to have finally started to slow down. The website cart appears fairly stable. The new homeschool curriculum is available. We've posted most of the 3-Week Samples. And aside from a couple of feature requests and mild tweaks, Sonia is working great!
But all that--the ups and the downs--pales in comparison to the reminder of what today is. Today is Good Friday, and Sunday is Easter. On the one hand, I'm a little bummed more people don't produce Easter Albums like they do for Christmas. I'm a little bothered that we don't have more songs relating to this incredibly important holiday. I sometimes wonder why this isn't an official holiday.
...on the other hand, this is a good thing: We haven't commercialized this one. The somber reminders and the holy joy we experience hasn't been overshadowed by ritual, routine, and self-focus. This isn't about us. This is about what Christ has done because of His great love for us. We're in the picture, to be sure, but our eyes are still drawn to Christ on the cross and the empty tomb we celebrate on Sunday.
This is a good Friday, even if we do end up with more technical glitches. This is a Good Friday because of what Christ has done!
