GOOD Friday

Thank you, Jesus, for dying on the cross for us long ago!!!! You are so GOOD! Help us remember your sacrifice everyday!
Hey ladies,

I just wanted to remind you that today is Good Friday. We observe this day because it’s an important part of the Easter story. A long time ago on this Friday, lots of people were very mean to Jesus and they made him hang on a cross because they didn’t like Him and were afraid of Him. He died on that cross and they put him in a tomb and covered it with a big rock. The disciples were so sad. They missed their friend Jesus.

But God had a different plan…God knew that if Mommy and Emmy and Hayden and Daddy were going to come to Heaven someday, Jesus needed to die on the cross for our sins. Even better, the ‘good’ part of the story is that Jesus didn’t stay on the cross…he didn’t even stay in the tomb. We celebrate Easter because even though we’re sad today about Jesus hurting, we’re excited because on Sunday He’s going to come back!!

I love you girls. Remember today how much Jesus loves you too, and what He did a long time ago to make sure we can be with Him forever.

See you tonight,
