Hail, Rain, Snow, Clouds, Sun, Wind - all Today
The weather here in southest England has been appropriately dramatic and extreme yesterday and today, honoring God with fierceness at the memory of when He was briefly dead in humanity's place, between Good Friday at 3pm and Easter morning early.
Yesterday on Good Friday we had sun, clouds, rain, hail, thunder, and lightning.
Today was a repeat, adding snow and wind to the mix. Above are the hailstones in front of our house, below are the snowflakes blurring the blooming yellow Forsythia bush - it's supposed to be spring! The sun did come out at the end of the wild day. Like Jesus rising in His glory after suffering the storm of cruelty and punishment.
Watching The Passion of the Christ on Good Friday is a horrific and helpful way to dismiss any "woes" I have ever had and remember the most (literally) earth-shattering moments in history. Super-sobering and a very useful tool for over-18s to focus on what the Lord really willingly chose to submit to out of His steadfast love for each of us, His precious and fallen creatures. I wondered whether any movie theatres thought to offer a special Good Friday re-showing of this movie.
