(techinically yesterday since it is after midnight but im still awake..so for me it's still Good Friday)
I was reflecting tonight on my week while i was getting easter baskets ready for Sunday ...
It was not a good week.
Work was SUPER busy.
I was SUPER tired and not feeling that great this week.
I didn't get much time with the kids.
House stuff, chores and errands were becoming a mountian in front of me.
J. and i were cranky with one another.
then this...and then that.
In my reflection, i was thinking about good friday, the day we as christians commerate Christs death on the cross for us AND i realized what a shameful turd ive been this week.
Serioiusly, Christ DIED for us. He was rejected, beaten, spat upon, mocked and all ive cared about was myself.
I know im a sinner.
I know sometimes life gets in the way of my relationship with God.
I know this week (with the exception of prayer i have not given Him the time i should)
I know there will always be days, weeks, moments when i can do better. Im not unrealistic about the roadblocks that are thrown in front of me, of us...
I know for His sacrifice for me, i can let that mountain of things that is growing in front of me go sometimes.
