Power of the Cross, Blessed Easter

 Once in darkness - now in light,
Once blind, now you see.
Once a sinner - now a saint,
Once bound, now free.
That's the power of the cross.
See the chains fall.
That's the power of the cross.
See the chains fall.
Once a stranger, now a child.
Empty - now filled.
Once condemned, now reconciled.
Broken - now healed.
That's the power of the cross.
See the chains fall.
That's the power of the cross.
See the chains fall.
Yeah, the chains fall.
Once a prodigal, now home.
Once lost, now found.
Once an enemy, now a friend.
Once poor, now crowned. 
That's the power of the cross.
See the chains fall.
That's the power of the cross.
See the chains fall.
See the chains,
See your chains fall.
See the chains,
See your chains fall.
(Power of the Cross, by Natalie Grant)
He is risen. Matthew 28:6
I know my redeemer lives. Job 19:25

Happy Easter!
I pray for family held close to your heart.
I pray for happiness and thankfulness and joy.
I pray God's blessings on you and your family.
And I thank you for joining me on my
art journey and adventure.
What a blessing each of you are to me.
Every single day.
I am thankful and grateful for each of you.

(Just a little side note -
I took each of the photos in this post.
Locations range from mid Florida all the way 
up to the D.C. area.
One day I hope to have a cross and steeple
book on the market,
with lyrics and thoughts about the cross.
The artwork is mine, as well.
The first piece is tangled.
The last piece is a paper pieced topper 
I made awhile back for my photography blog.)
