Holy Week

There is something about the week leading to Easter that always gets to me. I find myself a little more emotional, a little more solemn than normal. I'm not sure why that is. Maybe it's because I know Friday is coming. Good Friday. Seems strange to call it that knowing what our Savior endured......doesn't it? It seems right that this week is solemn.

Jesus went through a wide range of emotions during this week. Everything from anger (scolding the money changers in the Temple) to peace (at the Last Supper) to being so scared that He was, literally, sweating blood (while praying in the garden of Gethsemane).

Yes....it seems right that I feel solemn this week. I don't feel like celebrating. Sunday....I will celebrate! Tonight, I feel like curling up on His lap. I think I will go home and do that.

I know what you mean. This is such an awesome week for all of the human race. People don't realize that sacrifice that was made that day and how we have all been set free because of the sacrifice that was made for us.

What a loving God we serve.

I am so glad that I can look on someones blog and they are entranced by this week. Some people talk of the easter bunny or special outfits. But, that all aside, this week is for our savior, and without his love for us, we would of never had the hope of grace and mercy. Yes, this week is so awesome and yet so solemn. Thank you for your heart and letting it speak out. A wonderful reminder of where we all should be this season. Love ya, from Tanya.

As I read this post, that funny feeling tugging at my heart, knowing God so loved us, and to just now feel our arms around each other, Jesus and me. We have so much to share. Thank you Nana C
