GOOD FRIDAY ~ ITS ABOUT THE CROSS




When I saw this YouTube of the Bell Brothers singing "It's all about the Cross" I was moved as it speaks my heart, and it's what happened on Good Friday.

Twenty 27 years ago on Good Friday, our youngest daughter, Jill was in a horrific car accident and her life hung in the balance.  She was still alive on Easter morning, and my dearest was giving the message at a Sunrise Service.   He said "She's Alive", and of course everyone expected him to say "He's alive", but he went on to tell that Jill had survived the night and was alive.  It was a long period in intensive care and the hospital, but God granted our prayers and today she is the mom of our youngest grandson, Tristan who will be three in June.  God is good all the time, and then some.  We will never forget that Good Friday.

I pray that you will embrace the One who not only died on the cross for the sins of the world, but rose the third day to prove His diety and welcomes anyone who will believe.

God bless you all.

  2. What sweet words to hear "She is alive" about your daughter and her injuries those many years ago. And sweetest of all to hear "He is alive", God's promise to Christians.

    1. Thank You, Terra. It was truly a miracle as she spent a month in ICU and many many months in the hosital. She bears the scars but God was so gracious to us for her life.

  6. I loved the video. I've never heard that song before. Thank you for posting it. It really is all about the cross and Christ rising again. Yoo many people think it's about the Easter Bunny. I'm so thankful for my Lord's plan for salvation.

    Hope you and your family have a wonderful Easter.

    1. You know Suza, our Jill is a red head too. It was a long recovery. a month in ICU and many months in the hospital. Many skin crafts, and we didn't know from day to day if they might have to amputate her right leg. But God is good. She wears her scars proudly and is a lovely woman.

  14. Wow, Wanda! how horrific that must have been for you both! I can't imagine getting up to deliver a sermon with my daughter's life in the balance..in case she left whist doing that. So glad she recovered and your prayers were indeed answered. I guess God had other plans....like Tristan! :)

    I hope your Easter was good. I'm sure it was. Yes, it's all about "real" life as that video/song says!
