They call it Good Friday...

I've never understood why they call it, "Good Friday"...and I'm a pastor.  Go figure.

It's basically the day that made everything possible for people, but for Jesus it was the suckiest day ever, to say the least.  I can't imagine if all my friends (or even my enemies) took the worst day of my life and was the one day of the year they forever declared "good".  But I'm sure it's referred to as good simply because the cross makes everything possible.   It's outcome was spectacular for us and the worst pain ever for Him.

So yesterday, Good Friday 2010,  was one of the worst days of my life.  No, I wasn't exactly crucified but emotionally I might as well have been.  I won't get into it here on the blog out of respect for others but let's just say on top of my body still hurting, I could basically win the award for worst Mom of the year.  I'm seriously re-thinking preaching on Mother's Day, ever again!!!

The only thing that consoles me right now is that God was the first parent ever and look at how his first two kids totally screwed up.  I guess maybe there's hope for me, but I still don't know about the preaching on Mother's Day thing...lol.

PD! Is there something in the air? Not my best week either! Know that you are loved. I know from your blogs the laundry list of stuff you do for your kids. You just rushed Savannah to school um not quite dressed to meet anyone publicly, all the ironing and getting clothes ready for folk who could really probably do it themselves. You go way above the call of duty in my book.

Sounds like a girls weekend away is in order!

Show me one mother who hasn't ever felt like the worst mother in the world. Don't beat yourself up. Jesus doesn't. I love you, Pastor D.
