Good Friday Flash 55.....




He looked so frail hanging there.
Naked, bloody, sweaty, screaming for
water, screaming at his God in Aramaic...
"Eli Eli Lama Sabachthani"!!!
Now He was still.
Longinus was given the nasty chore of
Crucifragium, breaking the legs to hasten death.
That was unnecessary!
Instead he pierced 'The Kings' side with his lance.
Blood and water gushed......


Whether you believe that Jesus rose from the dead
or Not. This day happened. His suffering was REAL!
Believe in His Goodness, NOT the evil that men do!!
If you or anyone you know has written a Friday Flash 55
Please come tell The G-Man...
I will visit, read, enjoy, comment...Then BOOK!!
So from the most solemn host from coast to coast...
Have a Kick Ass Easter!!!

That's a sobering reminder, G-Man. No fluffy rabbits or pastel eggs in that portrait.

It’s been a busy week, but there’s always time to drop my fifty-five cents in the hat. I’ve got a serious case of spring fever and a few photos to go with it.

Great historic remembrance. My 55 is HERE.

Believing in the goodness and being the goodness, that's the best we can do indeed.

G-Man, Happy Easter. I'll post mine early tomorrow morning.

My 55 is seasonal though not easter related, about how you sometimes really don't need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows.

My 55 is about death, though not of the Easter variety. Thank you for writing a most meaningful piece ....

All very true!
One of the prophecies was that none of his bones would be broken...
And they weren't!

I almost feel guilty for doing a frivolous meaningless 55.
Almost. :)

Thanks for yet another week of hosting the Friday 55.
Mine's here. :)

P.S. I could've sworn I saw someone who looked just like you at Kroger the other day. It probably wasn't you, but I still looked twice. :o

Helen said...

Should have known YOU would play Euchre!!!! Love that game ....

TALON said...

This is so touching and so sad, Galen. And the suffering...it must have been beyond the realm of the imaginable. A perfect Good Friday 55.

kkrige said...

Happy Easter G. I will have something up tomorrow. I wrote an article today that touched on the traditional meaning and background behind Easter. Pretty sobering stuff, but the gist is that he was supposed to have died for our sins right? Seems like a lot to bear, but I suppose we should give thanks. It isn't always a pretty world, but for everything there is a reason.

thanks Man!

When you take a stand, you go all the way. I think the Man Upstairs is proud of you. I'm sure it doesn't matter a whit what I think, but I'm proud of you too.

Hallelujah, Reverend G!

My 55 is also a tribute, but the subject is a bit less holy: 1936
