Now, don't get me wrong, I love to celebrate and get together with family, but is that all it has become? Have we stopped seeing Good Friday for what it is meant to represent and instead use it as a day to start scrambling to get our casseroles prepared and our outfits all coordinated for the family picture Easter Sunday? Do your kids even know what it's all really about?

So this year I'm prepared. I'll buy store bought goods instead of home-baked creations if I have to. But today and tomorrow and Sunday we will be bringing the story of Jesus's sacrifice and his triumph over death to life in this house. We're going to tone down the baskets and get excited about a new book instead. And get to talking about the Father's love and the power of the cross. After all, I am a storyteller by trade... and I can't think of a more exciting tale to tell!
Good Good Friday and a happy Happy Easter, from Amy and the Alley Cats!
