I somehow missed my March 27 post.  I have absolutely no idea of or excuse for why that happened!

I’m covering both, this week, so as not to impinge on any of the other foxes’ or the hound’s time here.

Disliked book covers2       disliked book cover

For the 24th I was supposed to tell you what would NOT entice me to buy by a book’s cover.  One word – GROSSNESS!  I.e.  Pedophilia, blood, guts, gore, and at the risk of being run over by a train in today’s politically correct world; people of the same sex kissing each other in a more than familiar way.  Please don’t mistake me as one who has homophobia or anything like that.  What turns others on is their business, not mine; I’d just not be enticed to buy by any other than a man and woman sharing their love for each other.

Good Friday-the day death died                                      Good friday-the son of man must suffer many things

For today, the 31st, I’m supposed to write about Good Friday?  NO!  I just figured out that this is a FREE Week!  For the record; I’d not feel right about ignoring Good Friday since it was the first topic that came to my mind, so I won’t.  It’s said that “Christians commemorate the passion, or suffering, and death on the cross of the Lord, Jesus Christ,” and lot of folks put Christians down for “celebrating” His death.  What those people don’t understand is the reasons behind the celebration.

It’s not that we are happy for all the suffering He endured – Far From It –We celebrate the Great Love He has for us all, that He would lay down His life for us sinners here on earth so we would receive forgiveness and life.  (The remembrance of all He went through is very emotional and inspires tears to imagine.)

I’ll be back on the next FREE week to offer you some shameless self-publicity on my Series.  You lucky people, you.   😉

    I’m looking forward to hearing about your series, Janette. And what a heartfelt tribute to Good Friday.


  2. I enjoyed your post. It is sad that some people misunderstand Good Friday and Easter, well a lot of holidays are misunderstood.


  3. Not shameless, Janette! That is what the free weeks often are used for “promotion”. I haven’t had anything to promote so I have been promoting others. ( I realized I should have probably promoted a few articles I had published in the last couple of years,but I didn’t.)
    Anyway, Good Friday no longer gets much respect and that is a shame. I used to do vigil late into the night on Holy Thursdays, but, well, kids, then grandkids and health have really stopped that practice.It is one I can’t say I ‘enjoyed’ as much as I felt the need to ‘watch one hour’,(or several), with Him.

    Interesting that you’d mention “gore” as one of the turn-offs on a book cover.
    Seems to me like about every third or fourth book I see these days has rich red blood running from some body.

    Those are the books I don’t pick up, Jeff. I pass over them so quick they don’t even register in my subconscious.
