March 28th – Just an Ordinary Day

Thelma Scott Kiser wrote a poem called “Today is Friday”. Yes, I know that this date does not always fall on a Friday, but it goes like this:
“In Jerusalem Men stand and talk
About the price of wheat the promise of a bumper olive crop,
Oppression of that tyrant Rome of pruning vineyards and the dearth of labourers.

Outside the gates silhouetted on Golgotha’s Rise
Three crosses standand as an earthquake shakes the earth
The only question is Will this affect the price of wheat or lessen the grape yield?”
This is from Luke Chapter 23 v 27-31
A large number of people followed him, including women who mourned and wailed for him. Jesus turned and said to them, “Daughters of Jerusalem, do not weep for me; weep for yourselves and for your children. For the time will come when you will say, ‘Blessed are the barren women, the wombs that never bore and the breasts that never nursed!’ Then “they will say to the mountains, “Fall on us!” and to the hills “cover us!”".
A Prayer: Behold the cross displayed, whereon the Saviour of the world did hang. O come, let us worship and bow down …..
Now read Luke 23: 26-49.
