Good Friday. . . And Resurrection

But He was wounded for our transgressions;
He was bruised for our iniquities
Upon Him was the chastisement that made us whole,
And with His stripes we are healed.

(The Book of Isaiah, Chapter 53, verse 5)


(edit Easter Sunday morning, April 24)

The rest of the story -

"Death is swallowed up in victory."
"Where, O death, is your victory?
O death, where is you sting?"     (I Corinthians 15:54-55)

". . . he who raised the Lord Jesus will raise us also with Jesus
and bring us with you into His presence."  (II Corinthians 4:14)

I wish a very happy and blessed Easter - the Feast of the Resurrection - to all my friends.

(Here is last year's Easter post, if anyone is interested;
and here are three more, from my old blog.)


(The photo is one I took myself at Cross In the Woods, up north at Indian River, MI.  The cool 'cloud/halo effect' is completely serendipitous, as the sun, which was very bright against a richly blue sky that day, was just outside the frame of the photo.  In my efforts to get a good angle on the crucifix (I wanted Jesus to be more-or-less 'looking down at' the viewer), while keeping the sun out of the picture, I got a reflection inside the camera, and the effect was simply golden. . .)


  1. I certainly doesn't hurt to be reminded what this season is about.
