Have you ever broke down and cryed while doing a simple task? The tears came for me Friday night. I had received an order of stamps from Our Daily Bread and excitedly sat down to color. I stamped my image, pulled out Copics and started to work. But something unusual happened during that 30 minutes at the craft table. Where a blank piece of paper was, an image of the Savior came to be. As I colored the shadows around his eyes and the shadows under his chin, my eyes began to well. I pulled out a red Copic and started to define the streams of blood on his brow and face. As tears poured down my face, I came to realize a simple truth. For each stroke of the marker was like a lash he took for me. As I colored and defined his features, I became painfully, humbly aware of the beating he took for me. I saw the blood on his face and the thorns on his brow and realized how he suffered and died so I may live... so we all may live... Thank you and blessings...
and the inside...
