Holy Saturday Contemplation
Choosing your Cross
"I chose to pick up the cross. Is it easy? No. but I think it's made me a better person, it has made me a stronger person. And there comes a point where you can have the condition, or the condition can have you. It doesn't have to be a cross or victimhood."
— from Moved by Faith
I adore this reminder to be strong and faithful when we encounter the dark times in life. Today is a beautiful day to be motivated to pick up our cross and follow in the footsteps of our dear Lord Jesus Christ. Today is a day to be still, quiet and reflect on the great love Christ has for all of us. Tomorrow we all get to rejoice and praise Him for carrying the cross--our sins, so we could have eternal life. Humble yourself and be strong--pick up that cross. (source of clip art)
