Hymn and Scripture Challenge #8 - Christ Arose

Well...my friends...I think I have a problem with repetitivity! Yes, that is a brand new word that I just made up! I do know the correct way to say it but I like this way better! :o) As always when introducing my Hymn page I want to tell you that "I really love this hymn", "these are some of my favorite Scripture verses", and "I had so much fun creating this page"! Sounds familiar, right? Yet it's all so true!
It's just wonderful when we sing this hymn in church. It is always sung with such beautiful harmony and rejoicing! It's just music music to my ears! lol
Now, I'd like to talk about my page a little bit. This page took much more time than usual to create. It's based on Matthew 28. This is when Mary Magdalene and the other Mary go to the tomb after Jesus had been crucified.  An angel of the Lord appears to them and says:
"Do not be afraid, 
for I know that you are looking for Jesus, 
who was crucified.
 He is not here; He has risen, just as He said. 
Come and see the place where He lay. 
Then go quickly and tell His disciples: 
'He has risen from the dead 
and is going ahead of you into Galilee. 
There you will see Him.' 
Now I have told you." 

Can you imagine the JOY the Mary's must have felt? Overwhelming and incredible JOY!! Much like the JOY I feel when I think of all that Jesus has done for us; coming to earth and dying just to save us! :o)
For my background I used a few Prima masks and used some of my mists. Yes, I am now the happy owner of a few mists! I actually created what I envisioned as the garden scene, with bricks/stones, a garden gate, and trees. Then I covered it all up! lol I went on a bit of a flower making frenzy! Also, I had to add the Scripture verse, so I did that on a wood stamped sign post. Do you think once word got around about Jesus rising from the grave, that they posted a sign for those that came to see? :o)

  16. This is beautiful, Nancy! This is one of my absolute favorite songs from childhood! My favorite time to hear it was Easter Sunday morning at sunrise service! These days, my husband and I often start in on the chorus when our teenage son finally makes it upstairs from his bedroom in the basement, after 20 times of being called to "GET UP" and get ready for school!! LOL so glad you shared! BEAUTIFUL!!
