We went to see my Mom for Good Friday. We had a nice brunch at a new place in my hometown called Ida Mae's Cafe. It was fun reminiscing about all of the different businesses that used to be on that particular block through the years.
We went to church for service in the afternoon at the church I grew up in and again there I thought about how much things have changed through the years. Good Friday is one of my favorite days as I stop to reflect on the crucifixion and what that moment in history has come to mean to me through the years. One of favorite songs of all time is Thief by Third Day - it talks about the thief on one of the other crosses and his last minute redemption. This story always brings a tear to my eye when I think about the awesome forgiveness available to even the worst of the worst.
