One cross Laura gave me. Another Elizabeth gave us the summer she, John, and baby Caroline stayed with us six weeks (sweet memory). One is from Mexico. Another is from Rome (the top middle, with Jesus hanging on it). Three I got at Canton Trades Day. One I got at Hobby Lobby... and the others I don't remember (probably Hobby Lobby).
It's a nice wall.... but I often think about how those crosses would be modern day electric chairs, or hangman nooses if Jesus lived and died today.
Crosses were not things of beauty back in Jesus' day... as electric chairs aren't today.
They remind me of what Jesus did for us.
Tomorrow is Good Friday.
It really wasn't good, though. It was horrible. Jesus was executed.
But it became good. It became wonderful. It became incredible...
... because three days later Jesus rose from the dead!!
I hope that message is not old-hat to you.
It can get that way with me sometimes, I hate to say.
It's good for me to have that wall.
