Thankful.

Today was an awesome day. In a way it seems weird and a little bit wrong to say that but it truly was. Chris and I went to the good Friday service at church this afternoon and it was such an awesome reminder to all of us. Pastor Philip said a statement today that is so true and really clung to my heart. "Good Friday is an awesome and happy day to us but to Jesus it was an excruciating and painful one." It seems so weird that we rejoice and celebrate in His sufferings but without His horrible death on the cross we would not have eternal life in Heaven with Christ. I am so thankful for what He has done and in just a couple days we get to celebrate His resurrection! Beautiful!
It was also an awesome day because we had a great night with the Andrews-my in-laws. We had a BBQ, played games and laughed lots! I love family and I am so thankful for the one that God has blessed me with.

"He was wounded for our transgressions; He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we were healed." Isaiah 53:5
