Fridays Are For One Question

The goal of “One Question Friday” is simple: To show that everyone has something funny, engaging, creative, and worthwhile to say.

If there are alot of comments, we’ll keep doing it. If there aren’t very many, we’ll stop. So comment away! Be real. Be creative. Think hard. And check back to see how others answered the question.

This week’s question:

“What specifically makes today ‘Good Friday’ for you?”

    The moment when we get to explain to our son why the Friday when Christ died is called “good.”

    The word good gets a bum wrap.

    It’s like people think it means “better than ok” or “above average.”

    But when God looked at his creation his comment was, “It is good.”

    It’s like a cool, calm way to say really incredible.

    I love that we call it Good Friday, instead of Amazing Friday or Incredible Friday. What happened was amazing and incredible but those words are just a little silly to use when describing it.

    It’s almost like the word good is used when what’s being described is expected to be awesome. And we use those dramatic words like amazing when we’re surprised about something’s greatness.

    Genesis just wouldn’t read the same if when God looked at His creation and then he said, “It is incredible.” No kidding it’s incredible, it’s creation. So since he wasn’t surprised at how awesome His creation was he was just stating the facts, “It’s good.”

    Good Friday is just that. It’s good. It’s real good.

    Mine is good because my sister and her husband are in town and i get to spend all afternoon with them. Additionally, most of the rest of my family will be coming in tonight. We get to celebrate Easter together and have a little birthday cake in anticipation of my birthday on Tuesday. i love that.

    Our older daughter was born on Good Friday. It was a….horrific…experience. As in 6-weeks-early-emergency-c-section-with-spotty-anesthesia-and-not-knowing-if-she’s-alive-or-not-before-she’s-whisked-out-of-the-room.

    Despite the fact that her actual birthday isn’t until the 18th, I tend to find myself thinking about how terrifying that whole experience and its aftermath was….but how He brought us through it and here we are almost 6 years later with a VERY lively, talking, walking great kid who loves God unabashedly.

    Good indeed. 🙂
