Due to the somber nature of Good Friday, today's post is not humorous, but a meditation of sorts. Today just happens to be Earth Day, and although it is a positively wonderful thing to celebrate this beautiful world which God gave us, I have noticed that people are placing cuddly pandas and huggable trees over the terrible and violent, yet heart-stoppingly awesome death of the Man who died for us all. I drew this picture in an attempt to give some perspective on priorities.
Easter is rapidly approaching (yay!), but Holy Week is a time for a last few days of preparation. Because of the excitement due to Easter's approach, it can be especially hard in these last few days to concentrate on the "here and now" of Lent rather than heading out to buy chocolates or putting up decorations.
So, how to keep your mind and heart in the right place without getting discouraged? Music. Yep. You knew I was gonna say that, right?
For every day this week I will put up a song to help uplift your soul and keep your heart focused on Christ and His glorious sacrifice for us. I have one specific request: If you find that, after hearing the tune on YouTube or something, you like it, then please spend the $ 0.99 to download it off iTunes or Amazon. Considering the alarming amount of money which some talentless, disgusting artists make every day, I would appreciate you doing your part in supporting the artists who sing of true Beauty and Love.
