Hello Friends!!

Well last weekend we had ice and snow...Prayerfully the last of it!!  With Easter in less than a month, I am so ready for Spring.  Today I am sharing another card with easter flowers and the sketch for today's Shining the Light challenge at ODBD!!

Matthew 20: 17-19
17 Now as Jesus was going up to Jerusalem, he took the twelve disciples aside and said to them, 
18 "We are going up to Jerusalem, and the Son of Man will be betrayed to the chief priests and the teachers of the law. They will condemn him to death 
19 and will turn him over to the Gentiles to be mocked and flogged and crucified. On the third day he will be raised to life!"

While Easter is such a sad time as we think of how we crucified our Lord for our sin, it is such a happy time...a sign of new life for all those who believe!!  It is symbolic that the flowers and beginning of Spring begin since the trees budding with leaves, brown grass turning green and flowers blooming are all symbols of new life!! Thanks be to God for His Unspeakable gift!!

For more inspiration for this challenge, please visit my dt sisters:
You can join the Shining the Light challenge!! We would love to see your creations!!  You can see more details here.

Oh, Chris, what a beautiful card, and I especially love the Scripture passage you've shared. Yes, Easter is a wonderful time, as we remember the true meaning of the season...Christ died, paid the penalty for our sin, defeated sin and death, and rose again! And we shall as well and live with Him forever!! Beautifully made card with lovely coloring, and I love the pen Scott made. Praying they will sell to help with the mission trip fun! Hugs, precious friend!
