A Joyous Easter!

Apr 7, 2012

“Hallelujah, Christ is risen. The Lord is risen indeed!”

Children in the church I attend bring flowers on Easter Sunday and cover a box-shaped or palm-frond cross with colorful blossoms.The children participate in the transformation of the cross from a tool of hatred to a symbol of victory and love.

This drawing below reminds me of the children’s crosses. When I look at the picture I want to call it Love Crucified, Arose–the title of a resurrection song by Michael Card.

 My friend Connie gave me the stencils (by Pebbles) I used to draw the flowers. She incorporates stencils as part of the way she prays in color. For the art-challenged like I am, this can be a non-threatening way to get started.
