“And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.”
Hello sweet friends! I hope you are having a good week so far and that you are enjoying spring blooms and lovely weather. It has been a beautiful spring here in NE AL with the dogwoods, redbuds, and cherry trees putting on a fabulous show. Normally on Tuesday there is a tablescape, but today I am sharing a little vignette that I put together for my foyer. With the new life that we see all around us, it is my hope that we will turn our eyes to Jesus and the new life that He offers us.
A couple of months ago we purchased six acres that adjoins us. This property has an old barn and you also might remember last year the 1860 historic home which caught fire and burned. All that remains are the brick fireplaces and this one porch column. We are amazed that this gorgeous cherry tree that sat so close to the home was not damaged by the fire and intense heat! Butch and I rode down on the Arctic Cat so he could cut a few branches for me to enjoy!
Their pink blooms are gorgeous! If you follow me on Instagram you might have seen my picnic table covered in the cherry branches.
With Easter fast approaching we are preparing to celebrate the victorious resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, Today I want to focus and reflect on His cross. Without His death on the cross, there would be no forgiveness of our sin.
“He was despised and rejected by men, a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief; and as one from whom men hide their faces he was despised, and we esteemed him not. Surely he has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows; yet we esteemed him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted. But he was pierced for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with his wounds we are healed.”
