John 1:5: I think this Scripture is quite appropriate for Good Friday. L is not only for light, it is for Lent. In my faith tradition, Lent is a dark, somber corridor which leads us to the light. The story of Good Friday is one of the hardest for me to relive in my mind, and the hardest to share. It tells of mankind hitting rock bottom. It is an ugly story of an innocent, loving man being betrayed, whipped, beaten, and crucified. Such is the darkness. Yet, the light will come, because this loving man (also part of God, the tricky part to explain) forgives us. What an ultimate example of unconditional love!
Scripture: John 1:5 New International Version
“The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.”
Whatever faith you practice, may you feel the presence of the light today.
**The AtoZ Challenge theme for my blog is “Who I am.” Yes, it’s wide open. In April, I will blog from A to Z to include little tidbits about me, poems I’ll share, and stories. Each day I will write something based on the next letter in the alphabet. It’s been fun so far, yet it has really given me a chance to pause for reflection as well.
