At the Cross where I first saw the light...

The cross is something we see all the time now. We decorate our homes with them and we wear them around our necks- but how often do we stop to think what happened on that cross to make such a simple thing a symbol of love? How often do we sing the songs of our faith but not really listen to the words? Some of my favorite hymns are about the Cross - about the healing power of the cross-about how he died and bleed for me and all he asks of me is-my life -my all.

Take time this weekend to listen-really listen to the words of these songs on my playlist, some of my favorite. Ready your heart to greet a Blessed Easter Sunday -

He is Risen - He is Risen Indeed!

When I survey the wondrous Cross
On which the Prince of glory died,
My richest gain I count but loss,
And pour contempt on on all my pride.
See, from His head, His hands, His feet,
sorrow and love flow mingled down;
Did e'er such love and sorrow meet,
Or thorns compose so rich a crown.

Were the whole realm of nature mine,
That were a present far too small;
Love so amazing so divine,
Demands my soul,my life, my all.
