"A sweet friendship refreshes the soul." Proverbs 27:9
Hugs from Mac and Purr-Tater and best wishes for a sweet week!
Blessed Good Friday & Passover!
I took this photo two years ago, right at the beginning of the pandemic. How time flies! These stormy, dramatic clouds remind me of the scripture that describes what happened in Jesus’s last moments on the cross.
Matthew 27: 45-54
Now from the sixth hour until the ninth hour there was darkness over all the land. And about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, “Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?” that is, “My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?”
Some of those who stood there, when they heard that, said, “This Man is calling for Elijah!” Immediately one of them ran and took a sponge, filled it with sour wine and put it on a reed, and offered it to Him to drink.
The rest said, “Let Him alone; let us see if Elijah will come to save Him.”
And Jesus cried out again with a loud voice, and yielded up His spirit.
Then, behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom; and the earth quaked, and the rocks were split, and the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised; and coming out of the graves after His resurrection, they went into the holy city and appeared to many.
So when the centurion and those with him, who were guarding Jesus, saw the earthquake and the things that had happened, they feared greatly, saying, “Truly this was the Son of God!”
Thank you, Jesus, for your powerful finished work of taking all our sin on the cross,
and opening the door for us not only become God’s beloved children, but one with You.
Yours is the greatest love story ever told!
May we always continue to experience your love and grace in a deeper way.
Hi Friends, Happy Spring!
Let the flowers begin!
• What's your favorite flower?
• What's a new thing that's happening in your life?
"Look, the winter is past, and the rains are over and gone.
The flowers are springing up, the season of singing birds has come,
and the cooing of turtledoves fills the air."
Song of Solomon 2:10-12
The picture above was created by me digitally using Photoshop brushes.
This is an illustration I made a few weeks ago. It's called "The Power of a Seed". Prayer: "Lord, Thank you that during this dark time, you are drawing us to yourself, the Light-- our true Light. Give us eyes to see and ears to hear from You. Thank you that You alone are the source and supply of everything we need. We rest and receive from You - your approval, acceptance, shalom, wholeness, wisdom, all provision. Thank you that YOU are our everything and reveal yourself to us as such. Thank you that as we continue to receive your anointed Word and love, it brings forth a harvest of much fruit in us and for us, and for those around us, that YOU're glorified. Amen!"
One of my favorite scriptures-- I originally designed this back in 2015, but wanted to share it again. Shalom!
