Below are pictures of my daughter's Charlotte's Web art installation with Wilbur displayed in the library.

“You can imagine Wilbur’s surprise when, out of the darkness, came a small voice he had never heard before.

It sounded rather thin, but pleasant. “Do you want a friend, Wilbur?” it said. “I’ll be a friend to you. I’ve watched you all day and I like you.”

“But I can’t see you,” said Wilbur, jumping to his feet. “Where are you? And who are You?”

“I’m right up here” said the voice. “Go to sleep. You’ll see me in the morning.””

Christian Lawyers

Good Friday is the day in history when Jesus Christ was crucified on the cross some 2,000 years ago. It is sometimes considered a sad day, as the man who claimed to be the messiah, God himself in the form of a man, was killed. With his death came the end of a dream for his 12 disciples and thousands of other followers.

The good news, is that it was not the end of a dream. Three days later, on Sunday morning, he rose from the grave, and then appeared to hundreds of people before ascending into heaven where he sits at the right hand of God Almighty. His resurrection provides us the confidence of knowing that we can enjoy eternal life with him. The key to having that benefit, is having a relationship with him and accepting his work on your behalf.

God is a holy God, and cannot tolerate the presence of sin. The reality is we have all sinned, creating the problem. The only exception was Jesus, who lived the perfect life. God's holy nature requires a consequence/punishment for sin. We can pay that ourself, or let someone else do it for us. That someone else however, must have lived a perfect life. That was Jesus. In his death on the cross, he took God's wrath, so that we do not have to. He lived the life we should live (and can't), and died the death that we deserve to die (and don't have to).  This was the great exchange (he took our sin and gives us His righteousness so that we can now be in God's holy presence).

The reason we call it Good Friday, is because it is the day that Jesus died. Why is it good that Jesus died? Because you (and I) do not have to if we believe! That is why Christians celebrate Good Friday and Easter.

While this may seem to be off topic on family law and wills and probate, I really do not think it is. We all face life and death decisions, and this is probably the most significant weekend in our calendar to think about it.
