My unique Good Friday.

I had the unique opportunity to experience Passover and Good Friday as...

...the mother of Jesus! Robert did a beautiful job; I was very proud.

The little kids and I were in the triumphal entry and the "let the children come to me" skits tonight at our church. Groups of 20-30 people took a "journey", following Jesus through scenes of the last hours before his crucifixion.

Thomas really wanted to be one of the Roman soldiers, but he was a little too small yet.
Honestly, I wanted to savor the Good Friday experience but we were so busy repeating this skit for group after group that I didn't get to enjoy the evening. Not until the last group of the evening anyway. After our scene was over I followed the group to the Last Supper and then on to the Garden of Gethsemane, and then to communion at the cross.
It was a beautiful way to end a very special day.

Have a blessed Easter!
