>I am almost intimidated to try to put in words what this day means. As I sit here sipping coffee in the quiet house I am nearly overwhelmed. I am forty years old and have always “observed” this holy day…but until this year, I have never “felt” it. Thousands of years ago an enormous price – a life – was given for me! Me!?! Who am I!? I would like to think that I finally “get it” but to be honest – my simple brain cannot comprehend the sacrifice that was made on that cross. God gave his son in the most selfless act of LOVE ever seen. Love for the world he created and a love that would stretch thousands of years…Again, I struggle to find words… Today I will reflect on what it means to love and be loved like that.
