Do you guys have any Easter traditions? Every year my mom makes me an Easter basket, and we normally have family over. This year for Easter dinner, I'm pretty sure we're just doing pre-made lasagna, salad, and bread. XDD For desert I'm going to be making homemade hot cross buns though.
Anywho, let's get going with todays post!
Last year for Easter, I shared a really great poem that Lostfairy's sister, Tracey Dyck wrote! I decided I would do that again this year too. If you would like to view the post this poem is in on Tracey's blog, you can click here.
The poem is called 'When Love Runs Red'.
When Love Runs Red
by Tracey Dyck
When Love comes down to authored world—
Conceived within a virgin girl,
Laid to rest in bed of straw—
Come to satisfy the law . . .
When Love walks with the least of these
And answers blind men’s searching pleas;
Touches lepers, calls forth the dead,
And finds no place to rest His head . . .
When Love endures the scoffers’ words,
The hatred by His enemies stirred;
And bows to take a crown of thorns,
The cross upon His shoulders borne . . .
When Love climbs up that hill of death
And cries forgiveness with final breath—
When wrath of God on Him does fly
And night engulfs the weeping sky . . .
When Love runs red down rugged beams
And wrongs are washed by scarlet streams,
When blackest sinner becomes white,
Declared by God to be made right . . .
How can our hearts not drown in this?
This flood of grace, redemption’s kiss?
How can we not succumb to Him?
In light of this, all else grows dim.
When Love emerges from the grave,
Makes children of the serpent’s slaves,
The victory won, the chasm spanned,
In glorious light we Beloved stand.
I literally get goosebumps every time I read it. XD It's such a great poem about the life and resurrection of Jesus.
Stay tuned on Thursday and Sunday for more Easter related posts! ^.^
Here's todays Bible verse!
John 12:13 NIV
They took palm branches and went out to meet him, shouting,
"Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!"
"Blessed is the king of Israel!"
Fitting Bible verse for today, since today is Palm Sunday! 😊
God made you. Uniquely. Beautifully. Intentionally. Purposefully. Wonderfully.
