Christ Is Risen Indeed!

Today we celebrate the resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, Who did not remain in the tomb but defeated sin and death and bodily rose from the dead. Praise God, He is risen indeed! 

I wanted to share a card with you today after hearing a wonderful Easter sermon reminding me of Christ's love, a love like no other.

For my card, I used a quote from The Cross and added one of the crosses along with some flowers from ODBD's new Ornamental Crosses dies with pearls. I used a sheet from ODBD's Christian Faith Paper Collection for my background, added some ribbon and floss to finish it.

One of my Facebook friends posted this wonderful song by Keith and Kristyn Getty, "Christ is Risen, He is Risen Indeed."  I trust you will enjoy it. Here's a portion of the chorus:

Christ is risen, He is risen indeed!
Oh, sing hallelujah.
Join the chorus, sing with the redeemed:
Christ is risen, He is risen indeed.

What a glorious week it has been as we've considered all that Christ has done for us. He was crucified on the cross, buried, and endured the wrath of God, but defeated sin and death and rose from the dead. "But in fact Christ has been raised from the dead, the first fruits of those who have fallen asleep" (1 Corinthians 15:20). He has taken the sting out of death when we trust Christ and Christ alone for our salvation.

Thanks so much for "stopping by" and leaving a comment or sharing a thought. 

For His glory,

This is so rich and beautiful, Cheryl! With all that pretty color I didn't stop to think at first that it's actually a monotone. Very nicely done. The cross almost looks like macrame. I hope you had a lovely Easter!
