That Friday...

At 3pm, it rained. Rained so heavily. The rain today feels different. In the midst of wetness and refreshing breeze it brings, it is mixed with a string of sadness, loneliness, that breaks the heart of all who feels it. I am reminded…

Six hours one Friday,

was all that it takes,

for the son of Man,

Lamb of God,

to be nailed on the cross,

bearing all the sins and shame.

That moment,

clouds turned dark,

the Father looked away,

heaven wept,

and the angels were silent,

looking at that man hung on the cross.

“It is finished.”

The end of sins

end of His work here on Earth

end of His cup of sufferings

end of death,

for our Lord,

has paid them all.

Love is the color of the blood stained on the cross at Calvary…
