Easter Gratitude

This work is one of the 5 passion paintings by Rembrandt for the

stadtholder Frederik Hendrik.

The Raising of the Cross, the Descent from the Cross, the Entombment,

the Resurrection, the Ascension.

. Easter was joyous as we went to church and

sang. My eyes filled. Easter should do that.

The beauty of the Gospel. Excellent sermon

on Psalm 2.The beauty of worship.

Have you kissed the Lord Jesus?

12Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from

the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little.

Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.

The term kiss refers to the solemn token

or sign of honor which subjects were wont

to yield to their sovereigns.

( Calvin's Commentary)

holy experience

I saw you as you came into church but didn't see you, sorry. Was happy mom came. Her college roommate was there--I always love to see those two "octogenarians" together!
