Passion is a gritty kind of love, tough and

optimistic enthusiasm that overcomes negativity and inconvenience to make it

through to the end. (10,000 Reasons Overflow)

Things I'd rather not see

I own the Passion of the Christ, I have for awhile now. I can't bring myself to watch it. Just watching parts of it, makes me cry.

I can only imagine giving my daughter up. And it makes me sad just to think about it. I can't imagine standing by and watching her beaten, especially for the good of anyone else. I seriously don't think I love anyone else that much.

I am doing a lot of reflecting this season. A lot of thinking about what a wretch I am and how amazingly undeserving I am of a God who loves me.

eph 4:7 But to each one of us grace has been given as Christ apportioned it.

Our Church went as a group to see this when it opened at the theatres.
I cried so much I had to choke back my sobbing!
What hit me throughout this film
especially as a Mom, was that Mary gave her firstborn Son willingly, how she followed Him from place to place and watched Him beaten and hung on that Cross to die!
I questioned myself... could I do the same?
I have not watched that film again,
once was enough, I can't bring myself to see His suffering.
Good Post, one so appropriate for Easter!
