old rugged cross

I have lots of crosses - metal, ceramic, painted, crystal. I love them all. My favorite is this one. Made of driftwood from South Carolina by my dear friend and sister in the Lord, it reminds me of the ruggedness of the cross on which Christ was crucified. And without getting too carried away on symbolism, without Christ I am drifting. He found me, just as Anne found this wood. The beauty of this Easter is that the cross is empty, just as the tomb is empty, because He is Risen. He is Risen Indeed!

LINDAAAAA, I thought you had left the blogger world forever. I am so sorry I stopped looking. I looked all the time -for awhile. Yay!!!! you are back? You are right I love your post today.

This is my favorite part. "The beauty of this Easter is that the cross is empty, because He is Risen". The reason I like it is because normally the word empty does imply "good". It's not good to have an empty wallet, or stomach. To be empty is just not a good thing, and yet the tomb being empty is the important part. Without that empty tomb all would be lost.

Welcome back and I am sorry I stopped looking for your return. Hmm a little prophetic? We should never stop looking. :)
