On this Good Friday, a short reflection only as I believe human words should take away from the impact of God’s word.
A few months ago, during summertime, the news broadcast told the sad story of two young people who had gone canoeing on a river.
Suddenly, an undercurrent started to rock their canoe – they both knew they were in trouble.

She did and it saved her life. The boy was carried far away and his body was found only a few days later.
The young woman, remembering her boyfriend, kept repeating: “He gave his life that I may live…”
