Good Friday?

     I woke up today thinking about "Semana Santa" or holy week. But the first thing I saw today in the news was the "Mother of all Bombs" was dropped in Afghanistan.. Really?

      About the first, in Costa Rica, this is a whole celebration. Schools close by Tuesday afternoon and Churches put on these plays to represent the torture and death of Jesus Christ.  
     The person who represents Jesus Christ is picked since the year before, he's trained and closely watched by the local church for worthiness to represent the son of God. I don't remember what's done between Wednesday and Thursday, but by early Friday, streets are closed and people are out with the rosaries in their hands ready to have a long day of prayer.

     Then it begins. The stations that is. This means for each account in the bible the "procession" will stop at a local home or business to named and pray for forgiveness for causing the death of Jesus Christ. This will go all the way until Crucifixion, often done at the church's door.

     Then the mass, the admonition then we all go home. We'll be back Sunday Morning at church to hear about the resurrection and atonement of Christ. Now where the colorful eggs and cute looking bunny came from, has nothing to do with religion. That's a story for another day.
     About the "Mother of all Bombs" sounds very scary. I am glad that every where I read people are foreseen WWIII... (Maybe "glad" is not the right word, I feel like I'm not alone on this thought) 

     According to Times, a GBU-43B was dropped on Afghanistan where roads and tunnels believed to be used by ISSIS fighters were. There's no much info about the bombing just yet. What makes me sad is, that a country that you hardly hear in the news was attacked. . . Having known few people from that country in my life time, I can tell you, they don't deserve to be involved in such attack.

      Now North Korea is preparing to strike back against USA if Trump takes a "reckless" military action against them. Trump decided to involve China in this, saying that if the Chinese government doesn't do anything against North Korea he will, China is been caught in the middle, saying "You better knock it off! Don't make me turn this car around, because I will!!"

     And this is Friday Morning for ya'll, from Rocky Mount, North Carolina... It's gonna be  aloooooooong weekend, brace yourself.  

Scripture of the Day

"Bring ye all the tithes
into the storehouse, that
there may be meat in mine house,
and prove me now herewith,
saith the Lord of hosts;
if I will not open you the
windows of heaven, and pour
you out a blessing, that
there shall not be room enough
to receive it
