Happy Good Friday Everyone!
Last weekend I didn’t even realize that Easter was a week away. I donned on me Sunday as people were talking about Easter egg hunts and plans. I get so caught up in the day to day of work and other things that today hasn’t really seemed all that different to me. Sometimes I think that my relationship with God would be stronger if I could be more sentimental about days like this. I did find some pictures that put this week into perspective on BBC.com.

Palms are special because they
were used to greet Jesus.
