Very Good Friday
On Good Friday, in addition to going to church, I told the kids that we weren't going to watch tv, use the computer or have candy or other treats, as a sacrifice to help us remember that Jesus sacrificed His life for our sins. After church, we came home, ate lunch, and dyed Easter eggs. Then the snow began to fall, eventually accumulating 8 inches. The kids went out and played in it for while. Later they just played together, my 15 year old son wrestling with his 3, 4, and 7 year old siblings. They got out the cheap Dance Dance revolution game we got for Christmas and danced and laughed. Then we had a big family dinner. All in all, a lovely day. Thank you, Jesus.
