{ The Power of the Cross }

After I shared this picture last Friday, I thought it might be interesting to show y'all some of the other crosses around our house.


This is the cross that made that shadow.....


These are in a collection that hang on a wall in our living room.  





Jess painted this one for me.....


My Daddy and Momma in a frame with a cross.....


Doesn't everybody have a couple of barbed wire wreaths hanging around?


This little plaque was given to me by my friend, Ms. Ann, almost 30 years ago.









Tetelestai....
It Is Finished!



I planned this post yesterday, but didn't get it completed last night so I'm just now finishing it up.  I just happened to come across this in my Bible earlier this morning, so I feel like it's my confirmation that this post is what God wants me to share.  Many years ago in a Sunday school class I taught, each student was given a piece of paper and I asked them to tear it into a symbol of what Jesus meant to them.  This was mine.....
a heart and a cross.



All of the crosses we display in our home are just a symbol of what Jesus did for us when He willingly died such a horrific, cruel death.  When I look at them, it brings peace to my heart because I know He did it out of pure love.

HOPE everybody has a Marvelous Monday.

Make it a good one, Folks!

  2. I loved all your crosses, they are a constant reminder of His love for us! I have a collection too, most of them are hanging in my entry by the front door. One of the first things people see when they enter our home.

  7. It is amazing, isn't it? The cross is a symbol of horror, torture...but it has become a symbol of hope.
