One Week Until Good Friday

  1. I love the timeliness and timelessness of the Good Friday message. Nothing we experience in this life, including pandemics, can compare with the Cross. God bless you Julie, as you break His bread, and share with those at your table. ♥

    1. Thank you so much for coming alongside dear Jacquie. Your words touch me. That is our mighty God! Nothing can compare with the Cross, not even this plague. I receive this wonder-full blessing. I pray you receive wonder and awe in your heart as we move toward His death and resurrection. Love in Christ, Julie

  2. So fun seeing your family photos, and photos of places where you have been. It brings it all so personal–just like Jesus is so personal with each one of us. He really does meet us right here, in the hardest of places. Thank you dear sister!

    1. Thank you sister for the encouragement around the photos I chose. I don’t even know why I started looking back. In my mind, I would have none to fit this post, but God knew I did. And I know you know He meets us in those hard places. This post came after ministering to a dear sister who had been carrying more than she needed to. I am afraid we all do that. So grateful for He who is patient and loving. Oh Bettie, how are you today sister without the infusions?

      1. Oh yes, He does help us so much! I’m so thankful we can pray for each other! I had a couple of rough days with flares, but thank God, it’s beginning to lift now.

      2. Oh thank you Jesus for taking care of my sister. Bettie yes you have been on my heart ever since I read your infusions were canceled. May those flares fan the flame of faith in your soul, sister.

    1. Hi Kathy, I had to chuckle when I read you looked at your calendar. It sure is hard to keep the days straight as they are running together these days. Earlier today, I asked someone what she had planned for the rest of her Tuesday. Kindly, she whispered Thursday. Oh praise God for His loving care in sending us Jesus, our life-giving SAvior.

  3. Oh what lovely photos of your sons, Julie! Where does the time go? As I looked at them I was reminded of our 6 year old grandson. It seems like only yesterday when his father was the same age! Now we have one week to go before Good Friday, and we’re one day closer to the precious Hope of Resurrection Sunday to come. How we need to hang onto the thought of deliverance, new life and restored bodies as the world battles the coronavirus. Thank you for these encouraging, timely thoughts, dear sister! xo 💜

    1. Good afternoon, Joy! How wonderful that you can look at your grandson and think about your son. We are blessed with our children and you with your grandchildren, aren’t we? Oh yes, this Hope the Resurrection brings, I cannot contain it. Its saving power is for all. Thank you so much for today’s encouragement. You reminded me about a God thing I must do today. May He bless you and keep you today sister. Love, Julie

      1. Julie, it helps that he’s a mini-me of his father especially in the hair department! Although we can see a lot of his mother in him too so he’s a delightful mix of them both. As our only grandchild he’s particularly precious to us. May you savour every stage of your sons’ development. It all goes far too quickly when you look back. I pray the same blessing over you, dear sister as I settle down to sleep. With love. xo ❤

  4. This stirred my soul and heart for so many reasons. I’ve been on a 40 day study to Good Friday. Through everything my faith lies in Christ alone. I’m so happy to have found another joyful soul on my journey. God bless you and thank you for your beautiful words of truth. May we be a light for others just as you! 💚💚🤗
