Good Friday

We are preparing to enjoy a quiet and reflective weekend here with the family, and it is my prayer that you and your family enjoy this time together. While Good Friday is a time of sadness and so much more, we rejoice in the dawn of Resurrection Day!

As we celebrate Good Friday and Easter, remember the price paid on our behalf by our Savior. When I was a child, everything closed at noon in observation of Good Friday, and many homes turned off all the lights and electrical appliances, just to remember what happened on that Friday so long ago. These efforts seem to have made a difference -- it made many people reflect on what is so often overlooked, by people of all ages.

With the coming of Easter, let's prepare our hearts and minds for a time of remembering and thanksgiving!
