Today is Good Friday. Not misnamed…because if Jesus didn’t go through the shadow [and the reality] of the valley of death the lesson on life and how it can endure with God beyond death, would not be. Nothing we experience is a stranger to Jesus. That is my faith. So, I look this day upon the good—for death is our physical future, but not our spiritual destiny. There’s a difference, a huge difference.
Words of the Apostle Paul strengthen me and cast aside fear and at the deepest level, terrible anxiety and depression, “Whether we live or whether we die we belong to the Lord, to God, to Yahweh.” For God creates us all and gifts us with life and the good possibilities in living and a future without boundaries.
In thinking about this I just read a sermon that has given me joy…and the knowledge that EACH ONE OF US is capable of bringing [not so much out of our money but from our heart] value to others. It is linked…and I hope it will be a lesson well learned by each of us…whether we serve tables or not.
