Good Friday

But He was pierced for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities;
the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by His wounds we are healed. Isaiah 53:5

And when Jesus had cried out again in a loud voice, he gave up his spirit. At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth shook and the rocks split. The tombs broke open and the bodies of many holy people who had died were raised to life. They came out of the tombs, and after Jesus' resurrection they went into the holy city and appeared to many people. When the centurion and those with him who were guarding Jesus saw the earthquake and all that had happened, they were terrified, and exclaimed, "Surely he was the Son of God!" Matthew 27:50-54


  1. I was thinking about the significance of today on my way to work this morning. Hope you all have a wonderful Easter weekend.

    ps...I love the tiny hairs on the poppy stems.

  2. The tiny hairs are lovely, aren't they? I didn't see them when I snapped the photo...
