More than words....

I googled "cross" pictures. This one struck me. I like the darkness with the contrast of the light coming through. Beautiful to me.

I woke up this morning with a mixture of joy and sadness. Today is Good Friday. The day that Jesus died on the cross for us. It brings my heart inexplicable gratefulness and humbleness.

However, as I looked outside at the dark sky, I thought of that day. Chills ran up and down my body as I thought of Mary, His mother. What was she feeling? How did she watch Him die? I cannot even wrap my tiny brain around such a thing.

I went to Joseph's room and watched him sleep for a while. His body taking in air and letting it out. His chest gently moving up and down. His face was peaceful. A beautiful sight to behold.

I lie next to him, inhaling his 9 year old scent. A sharp pang in the pit of my stomach slowly churned. I thought of the devastation of losing him. I would not give him up for the world.

But, God did. He gave His only Son to the world as a sacrifice for us. Wow.

I'm speechless today.

He loves us so much.

In complete awe of Him,
