Thankful for: I am so very thankful, grateful, and humbled by that sacrifice that my Lord and savior Jesus Christ made for me. Good Friday is amazing, to think He died for me. John 3:16 says, "For God so loved Tiffani, that he sent his only begotten son, and if Tiffani shall believe in Him, she shall have eternal life." Isn't that amazing? And do you know what? Jesus died for you, too. And He didn't just die for you because you were part of the world that He was saving, if you were the only soul He could save by dying on the cross, He still would have done it. Really, truly. Just try it, and put your name in here. "For God so loved ______, that He gave his only begotten son, and if _____ believes in Him, he/she shall not perish, but have eternal life."
If you have not made a decision to invite Christ into your heart, I would so very much encourage you to do so. As my friend Jenn said so well this morning, It'll rock your world.
All you have to do it say this, and believe it in your heart:
"God, I recognize that I have not lived my life for You up until now. I have been living for myself and that is wrong. I need You in my life; I want You in my life. I acknowledge the completed work of Your Son Jesus Christ in giving His life for me on the cross at Calvary, and I long to receive the forgiveness you have made freely available to me through this sacrifice. Come into my life now, Lord. Take up residence in my heart and be my king, my Lord, and my Savior. From this day forward, I will no longer be controlled by sin, or the desire to please myself, but I will follow You all the days of my life. Those days are in Your hands. I ask this in Jesus' precious and holy name. Amen."

If you don't have a bible, I would love to send one to you. If you do have one, but haven't opened it lately, I'd encourage you to pick it up. Start in the book of John. it's in the New Testament, towards the back. Trust me, this will change your life in amazing, unbelievable ways.
I am so thankful, it brings me to tears.
I don't think I am going to finish Friday Facts today. What's for dinner isn't important right now.
Today, on Good Friday, I am thankful for my salvation. I am thankful that I know Jesus lives, and that the story doesn't end with Him dying, even though it was for me. I am thankful that my God, my Jesus, is all powerful and that He saves. I am thankful that He was willing to die for a cranky, insecure, sarcastic, messy, crazy sinner like me.
And He died for you, too. Really, truly.
And He lives!
