Coffee Friday April 2

It's Friday already? Wow, this week has flown! Pull up a chair and grab a mug! I have tea and, well, tea. I've given up Dr Pepper. Sweet tea has temporarily taken its place.

I love Easter weekend! I came to know Christ on Easter weekend when I was 6.

We are going to Good Friday services tonight. One thing our church does tonight is to have everyone hammer the nails into the cross. It's very sobering. Good Friday is a difficult day, but thank God for Sunday! Praise God that Good Friday wasn't the end! He is risen! And that makes my heart sing!

This was a timely post for me. So many times, I tell myself that I'm not good enough. That I've done too much wrong in an area to be able to help others in that same area. What a lie that is! Thank you Lord for putting that post in my path!

Well, today is a half-day at school. Originally, it was a vacation day, but we have to make up a snow day, so the oldest is at school.

My house is such a wreck! I have so many little things to do that I feel paralyzed by it all. The silly thing is, none of it probably takes very long...if I just move into action! So, my goal for today is to get a little done on my office. And to put together all the outfits for Sunday. And work on my Bible studies. I think I'll start with the studies.

Have a great weekend!


  1. I understand what you mean about all the little things that need to be done, but it feels overwhelming. I need to set my timer for 15 minutes and see how much I can accomplish. Happy Easter!

  2. I'll go with Stephanie and set my timer to get some stuff done. Sometimes that is all it takes to get started. I am I guess a little to competative not to get on with it then.
    I hope you got all you wanted to accomplished.

  3. Happy Easter to you too.

  4. Wow, I can just imagine that hammering the nails in the cross would be sobering. What a good idea to help bring home our sin...and yes, thank goodness, for Sunday!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog to visit!

    Happy Easter!

  5. Enjoyed stopping by your blog this evening! Love the idea of the hammering of the nails! Abundant blessings to you this Easter week-end!

  6. A very blessed Easter to you and your family.

  7. The hammering of the nails is an affirmation of faith. I think it was Colossians 1:23 - standing firm in the faith. Then, you pass by the communion table and your family gathers the elements. When you return to your seat, you do communion together as a family. It's just a really special time.

  8. We nailed our sins into the cross on Friday too--very powerful!

  9. Our church doesn't do Good Friday services yet because we haven't moved into our own building. But on Friday I enjoyed hearing my girls tell the story of the Resurrection with their Resurrection eggs. They learned how to tell it in preschool and really enjoyed doing it.

    The post about the comma was excellent indeed and timely. I just spent the weekend cleaning up what should have been done long ago WHILE my in-laws waited. Their sleeping quarters were not at all ready when they arrived on Saturday. Thankfully, they were gracious in spite of everything.

    Thanks for stopping by this weekend and have a Happy Easter Monday!
