& pondering these days...
I recently came to this conclusion: the cross is a symbol of value...I am so loved, so tenderly held in esteem that the Son of God would walk that road just for me. Considering a childhood tea-stained by sadness & displaced by unwantedness, I find that, I am even quite liking the girl gazing back at me from the mirror these days..
...value is everything. Finding myself loved at last..at home in beauty...& in Him.
So,what's Lent/Easter really all about? What does it mean to you?
Well, not this... that's for sure! This has to be one of the silliest Easter cards I've ever seen.
A lovely thought, but neither is it, this overly sentimental portrayal of the "Garden of Gethsemane"
I guess, in it's own way, the road to Calvary is the road to authenticity. Destination: "Home"
...not "home for Christmas" but home for good.
It all begins with a plan & a cross
