Well today is Good Friday what does that mean to people, for me it is day you don’t eat meat you eat fish instead and in my whole life 50yrs I can only remember eating a bit of meat once on Good Friday and that was way back when I first meet Tim and forgot it was Good Friday and then I felt aweful for eating meat.
Now I know there are many religions out there and not everyone is Christian and that is all good and well I have nothing against other religions as long as they don’t have anything against me and my religion. I am not a church goer I use to be when I was younger but not so much anymore. I no longer feel that I have to go to church in order to pray and talk to God.
Now I don’t eat meat on Good Friday and I raised my girls to not have meat on Good Friday and now they are all grown and out on their own I have no control over what they do and don’t eat but I do hope they still don’t eat meat on Good Friday. Now I know they are not very religious but I hope they don’t eat meat on Good Friday as I feel it is one day during the year how hard is it to go without meat on this one day, and by meat I mean all meat not just read meat and yeah I know there are those who think white meat such as chicken and pork don’t count as meat………….well I you call it meat then it is meat……………..you don’t call fish meat…………..I was raised you don’t eat meat on Good Friday none of this it is only red meat you don’t eat that is bullshit…………….yes I said bullshit…………it is all meat and it is one bloody day of the year.
I don’t know why it is so important to me but it is and I hope my daughters can do it for me, even though I am not a church goer. I am a believer, I do pray and I do trust God to guide my life. I don’t need to go to church to converse with God I do it most nights when I go to bed before I drift off to sleep at night.
Thankfully the shops are pretty much all closed on both Good Friday and Easter Sunday as these are the most important days over the Easter period and even though Sunday is what my youngest refers to as “egg day” it is in fact more than just the day you get Easter eggs and other goodies………
