Because He took my place

And so it begins

The week has begun.  It actually started yesterday with the celebration of Palm Sunday.  Holy Week.  As a Christian, this week is one of the most important aspects of my faith.  And right now, I don’t have a lot of words.  No, my words elude me.  I don’t have words for what Jesus did on the cross for me.  For you.  For all of us.  Because the words are written as perfectly as they can be right in the Word – the Bible.  And how can I express it any better than that?

So you won’t find many words this week here at Mama’s Empty Nest.  Because I am speechless that a Savior would leave the glory of heaven to come to earth and face what He did just to save my soul. And yours.

I have no words for the agony of the cross and the miracle of the resurrection.  No words.  But if pictures paint a thousand words, I can do that.  I can depict my thoughts, my feelings, my words with my photos. So in a deviation from the norm, that’s what you will see this week – photos with very few or no words.

May they help you contemplate this holy week if you are a believer in Christ and if not, may they lead you to come to know Him.
