Good Friday Is Not Misnamed

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.

About Mark H Miller

Diane and I live in Leander, Texas. This past June 17, 2015 I celebrated the 49th anniversary of my ordination. We returned to Texas after three years in Washington, during which I served as interim minister in Bellevue/Eastgate and Mercer Island. Am planning to begin a 5th novel that will have my protagonist, Tricia Gleason, serve a year in licensed ministry in Snoqualmie, Washington. The novel, "The Lemon Drop Didn't Melt," will find Tricia wrestling with ministry challenges. None of which more daunting than someone wanting her breathing to stop. All the published novels are available on Amazon and Amazon Kindle under Mark Henry Miller. A primary goal in our return to Texas is to make sure grandchildren get lots of attention--here and in Chicago and Washington, D.C. Traveling is definitely an activity that will not slow down. With that, of course, fishing will happen. To that the t-shirt is apt, "I fish; therefore I am." In addition to novels, the book of Blogs, "Voice Of My Heart," is also available on Amazon.
