7LW: Good Friday

Jen over at Conversion Diary isn't hosting a 7 Quick Takes in observance of Good Friday, so no quick takes today. Instead, I thought I'd offer the 7 last words (thus 7LW) of Jesus for contemplation on this holy day.

1) Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do. Luke 23:34

2) Truly, I say to you, today you will be with me in paradise. Luke 23:43

3) Woman, behold your son. Behold your mother. John 19:26-27

4) My God, My God, why have you forsaken me? Matthew 27:46

5) I am thirsty. John 19:28

6) It is... finished. John 19:30

7) Father, into your hands I commit my spirit. Luke 23:46

If I am more on top of  my game next year, perhaps I'll do a little reading and contemplating and have some reflections for you as well. This year, here are some links to resources to guide you in your contemplation on the 7 Last Words:

I'd love to hear your thoughts! Rest assured I do read each and every word, but please forgive me if I don't get back to you right away. The toddler tugging on my leg and the one year old pulling my hair may have seized control of my typing abilities. Blessings on your day!
