What’s Good About It?

4 Comments

I saw this BC cartoon on Facebook yesterday, and it struck a chord with me. I’ve often wondered why we call it good.

But what else could you call it?

“Black Friday?”

“Preparation Day?”

“Easter Eve?”

“The Day Jesus died for me, the sun went dark, the earth shook, the dead walked and the heavy, thick veil to the Holy of Holies tore from top to bottom?” (Matthew 27:51-54.)

Oh, yeah. I think “Good” works.

For as long as I can remember, I've loved two things--reading and people--and that led me to become a writer. Many of my stories are set in Small Town Worlds. I'm a wife, mother, sibling and an aunt. I have a deep faith in God, and an exciting life in Christ. Maybe I shouldn't be (after all, he's God!) but I'm constantly amazed at the things He's up to. :)

  1. I hear that at one time, it WAS CALLED Black Friday. Not sure when it was changed…!

    • Wow. Who knew? Maybe they changed it because we started calling the day after Thanksgiving BF?? Or not.
      Anyway, thanks for dropping into my Small Town World. 🙂
