Crushed For Our Iniquities

Today is Good Friday.

If you follow Jesus... this Friday - Saturday - Sunday is what it's all about.

"But he was pierced for our transgressions,
he was crushed for our iniquities;
the punishment that brought us peace was upon him,
and by his wounds we are healed."

Isaiah 53:5
This is the verse that kinda did it in for me. It all became so clear... so painfully, sorrowfully clear. What HE did for ME. But it was covered in a HOPE that I had never ever felt or understood.

Tonight we hit the church to do some celebrating, some worshiping, and some boasting in the cross as a family.

Some of us couldn't make it through it. But that's okay.

Sunday is coming...

Hi Tymm and Laura,
My sister adopted from Ethiopia with Gladney last year so I have been reading your blog for a year or so. I just got back from a month in Ethiopia and had a chance to visit Gladney's care centers. My sister suggested that LH3 might be in some of my pictures or videos! I'd like to send you copies if they've got your girl in them. Which house is she in? We visited #1 and #4. If you want to send me an email with some details and a picture, I can look through all my pics to see if she's in there! My email is kristiflorek @ yahoo (without any spaces). Happy Easter!
