A CROWN OF THORNS



A VERY belated thank you for a WONDERFUL gift I received some time ago from my dear friend, Jennifer. This crown of thorns I have hung on the corner of the paint by number of the Lord's Supper that I did 49 years ago. What a perfect place and reminder of the price that was paid by our Dear Savior and the Love of Our Father in sending His only begotten Son to die for me.

I truly have egg on my face for it being so long for me to acknowledge this gift of love. It truly is a gift of love, both in the making of it, and then in the packing and shipping of it.

I see it every day, Jen, and I love it. Thank you so very, very much!!!

Your picture and the crown of thorns make a very important statement.

Our Lord Jesus wears a new crown today. Praise His Wonderful name.
Blessings

Isn't that interesting how both of us hung ours by a picture of the last supper? I could not think of a better place for it.

I like the crown of thorns, and what a great place to display it! We have a picture of Jesus holding a man up at the foot of the cross. It's a very impacting picture. I have it hanging in our front entry so that wehn people come into our home they know Who is a part of our home.

I love your paint-by-numbers picture of the last supper!!! My mom did one when she was about 18 years old. However, she messed up on one of the disciples' faces, and some time later, stuck a yellow smily face sticker over it. She still has it, sticker and all, to this day.

I am so pleased to see that our handcraftiness promoting Him are side by side. It makes me feel connected to you even more.
It was not necessary for you to acknowledge this by the way. This was an act of love. I am so thankful for Him, and my salvation.
I pray that I never forget or put this gift He freely gave out of my thoughts.
