Celebrating Resurrection Sunday

Today is the day which is set aside by Christians to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus, the Lamb of God, the only sacrifice that could pay the penalty for the sins of the world, once and for all.

I'm not feeling very wordy today. (Did I just hear an enthusiastic group cheer?) But I did write a post about Resurrection Sunday last year that you can read here if you have an interest in knowing more about it.

Meanwhile, here are a few more spring photos. These were taken yesterday, in the yard of my brother-in-law's landlady. The first two pictures are of Bleeding Heart flowers; the other two are of a flowering (and fragrant) tree, the identity of which is unknown to me.

The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world. (John 1:29)

But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. (Romans 5:8)

And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission. (Hebrews 9:22)

And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation. (Hebrews 9:27, 28)

Wishing each of you a happy and blessed Easter!

  12. Hi, Linda and Doug,
    Those bleeding hearts look just like the ones in my rock garden in the back yard. Your pictures are just beautiful. Since I finished my quilt I had a little time to look at your blog. Hope you and Doug are having a great trip.
