Today is the day to remember sacrifice. One sacrifice in particular. I was always curious about the term "good Friday" because it never seemed "good". I would go to church and listen to the solemn hymns and the see the candles burning. Everyone was quiet and there was no lively chatter before or after the service.  So unlike Easter. 

But the sacrifice that was made was so good. It was the last sacrifice needed to bring us into relationship with the Creator.  To end the cycle of sin and distance. God becoming man to die for man to pay the price that we should have paid so that He could have a relationship with us.
It is so good. And I am thankful.
