Lent – Day Forty – Five
Friday, April 18, 2014 – Good Friday of Holy Week. I have always wondered about the name “Good” in Good Friday. Certainly wasn’t that great of a day for Jesus. And why if Maundy Thursday has so many different names, then why does this one only have one? How about Shadow Friday? Maybe Dark Friday? Or Not a Good Day to be King of the Jews Day? For me, I can call it “Almost Made It, Damn It Friday. I did this last year. On the last Friday of Lent, as in NO MEAT Friday, I forgot when I ordered my bacon, egg and cheese biscuit at Whataburger this morning. Now I am going to Hell. I hope it is one of the higher levels of Hell described in Dante’s Inferno and not the deep levels where the politicians and judges are. Actually, I think God already took care of it because – the reason I went to Whataburger was to try the jalapeno biscuit. I am so accustomed to my usual breakfast sandwich, I blurted out BACON before I remembered it was Friday and I was already forward in the queue. So I get my sack of food, drive away, and stop in parking lot to eat, and realize I have a regular biscuit. Not a jalapeno biscuit which was the reason I went in the first place. I also had to wait at the window because they forgot my coffee too. It was lukewarm with no sugar. God really does work in mysterious ways.
