Time for thanks giving and meditation. We joined the locals this morning for Stations of the Cross, the Easter Pilgrimage – very moving and humbling. I am not great with words but was moved to tears during this service. We started at St Malachy’s Catholic Church, then on to St James Anglican Church and finally to the Uniting Church. So glad we went along. Afterwards they made us very welcome and insisted we stay to share fellowship and refreshments at the hall next to the church. Hot cross buns made at the local bakery and tea and coffee! We walked back ‘home’ to our van and just after that the rain came and its been drizzling ever since.
The quiet caravan park we have been staying in is now breaming and packed with campers, all setting up camp sites in the rain, poor things! And so begins Easter weekend. Thank you Jesus for your ultimate sacrifice.
“I cannot tell how silently He suffered, as with His peace He graced this place of tears……….or how His heart upon the cross was broken…….
But this I know, he heals the broken-hearted and stays our sin and calms our lurking fear, and lifts the burden from the heavy laden for yet the Saviour of the world is here.”
Be blessed this Good Friday, stay safe ….
Love and hugs
