Yesterday was Palm Sunday, and I had to take a moment to reflect on just what that means to me, as a Christian... The fact that Jesus came, knowing what the end result would be, and then entered into Jerusalem knowing that within a week's time he would be suffering the most devastating and painful death, but yet he came still... It blows my mind.
I'm not one to usually make Easter cards, because the beauty of the resurrection is that Jesus is NOT dead... but the true meaning of Easter tends to get overshadowed by the White bunny and chocolate candies and such... And that's just NOT what Easter is about, at least for me.
BUT since I started out this post being philosophical, I ALSO have to stress that I know Jesus had a sense of humor, and he totally loved laughing. SOOOOOO, I do have a card for you this week, and it is an Easter themed one, and it's hilarious, or so I think, lol! :)
This card was made using "Egg Hunt
" from Stitchy Bear's Digi Outlet for the "Bunnies, Chicks, and Eggs" challenge this week at Craft Your Passion
So even though I will probably not be giving this card as an Easter card, per se, I totally had to get a giggle out of the image and out of the whole concept... I mean, she's adorably cute, isn't she? :)
As a closing thought, I have to wish you all a wonderful holy week. This week, for me, is a time of genuine reflection because my savior came here to a cruel, harsh world in a time when He was not welcomed to save a people who did not want to hear what He had to say. And while he walked the Earth, he showed us that we CAN enjoy God's creation and we CAN laugh and have fun and enjoy one another. Most of all, He showed us that we CAN live a life free of sin because of HIS sacrifice for us. Not a single one of us can be as perfect as He is. But we CAN strive to reflect His example, and we can enjoy our time on this Earth just like He did, with the knowledge that He came JUST so that we could know Him and abide in Him forever...
Thanks for swinging by today, and I hope you have a wonderful week!
