Today Is Good Friday

Today marks the anniversary of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ being nailed to a tree and crucified...And Praise the Lord, He rose three days later, and forever sits on the right-hand of God, the Father as our mediator and high priest!

I felt like a bit of introspective reflection today...enjoy your Holiday weekend!

He saw people love each other and he saw that all love made strenuous demands on the lovers. He saw love require sacrifice and self-denial. He saw love produce arguments and anguish..And he decided not to diminish his life with love.

He saw people strive for distant and hazy goals. He saw men strive for success and he saw that the striving was frequently mixed with disappointment..and he decided that it cost too much. He decided not to soil his life with striving.

He saw people serving others. He saw men give money to the poor and helpless..and he saw that the more they served, the faster the need grew..He saw ungrateful receivers turn on their serving friends..He decided not to soil his life with serving.

And when he died, he walked up to God and presented him with his life. Undiminished, unmarred, and unsoiled, his life was clean from the filth of the world, and he presented it proudly...saying, “This is my life.”

And God responded by saying, “What Life?”

Tim Hansel

Invest your life wisely and you'll reap great dividends for you and those you've impacted along the way.

“There is a choice you have to make in everything you do. So keep in mind that in the end, the choice you make makes you.” Maxwell

You don’t get to choose how you’re going to die, or when. You can only decide how you’re going to live.

“Your life is like a book."

The title page is your name, the preface your introduction to the world.

The pages are a daily record of your efforts, trials, pleasures, discouragements, and achievements.

Day by day your thoughts and acts are being inscribed in your book of life.

Hour by hour, the record is being made that must stand for all time.

Once the word ‘finish’ must be written, let it then be said of your book that it
is a record of noble purpose, generous service, and work well done.”

Grenville Kleiser

    Well, well done.

    And, as always, the painting is startling.
