The sacrifice he made, frees me

Hi Everyone! A happy Good Friday to you all.  As a Christian today I recognize the day Jesus Christ was crucified on the cross, taking upon himself the sins of the world to ensure we would all have eternal life.  It's hard to call it a celebration because there was suffering, but a celebration it is because of his sacrifice I have eternal life.

This time of year just like Christmas I try to focus on what the holiday really means to me.  Through my nail art I just don't have it in me to show Easter chicks and Easter Bunnies because it's not what the holiday means to me.  While I find all of those manicures completely adorable I need to reflect what's in my own heart.

Today I am wearing my Good Friday nails and thinking of the ultimate sacrifice Jesus made for me.  I truly believe I am not worthy and don't know that I ever will be.  I am, however, oh so grateful.  One day I will be with my beautiful sister again and will be in the loving arms of my dad.  This is not a sacrifice I take lightly as those two things mean the world to me.

I used some of my Sharpie markers over a  base of Sinful Colors Unicorn for my base.  I think it turned out beautiful.
I think we all know I don't do free hand well, but I was able to recreate a picture I found for inspiration!
It is hard to fathom sometimes that as Christians we rejoice in the death of our Lord, it's almost barbaric.  But through his death is the way we can truly live and for that there is definitely a reason to celebrate and rejoice.  Through him we are forgiven
Blessings to you all on this day!
