Check out these lyrics from one of my favorite Hillsong worship tunes…
At the cross I bow my knee
Where Your blood was shed for me
There’s no greater love than this
You have overcome the grave
Glory fills the highest place
What can separate me now?
You tore the veil
You made a way
When You said that it is done…
A lot happened that day on the cross.
As a way to celebrate and remember all that Christ did for us, let’s look to the cross for our inspiration as we begin the Easter season.
Here are some of my favorite Cross Crafts…
The Happy Buddy and I just made this one for our front window.
Whenever the Happy Buddy walks into the room with our stained glass window cross, he gets all wide-eyed and exclaims, “Oooohhhhhhh!” in an awed voice.
I followed the super easy tutorial from THIS SITE.
Then the Happy Buddy and I wanted to come up with a project using all the leftover Froot Loops from our St. Patrick’s Day Froot Loop rainbow, so we made this…
I thought it turned out pretty sweet.
