Good Friday

This is my favorite Easter decoration. My husband made the crown of thorns from a vine on our bouganvillia bush. The old family bible is about a hundred years old.

This vignette is in a niche between our dining room and family room.

I received this nail on Easter Sunday at our church several years ago.
A message is in the nail.
This nail haunts me as I study it and visualize how the nails, which were much bigger, were hammered into Jesus' wrists and feet.
His love for us is symbolized in those nails.
He died for you and me.

OMGoodness!!! That is something. First, I love how you have it displayed, the heart wreath is almost like the crown of thorns...and the nail. What it symbolizes should humble us ALL

I am so happy you visited my blog! You have the most lovely Easter table. I am just reading your great blog and all of your past posts. I may just have to sneak into your house and carry off the pineapple chairs and lamps.. LOL
Isn't it great to be a Floridian?

A beautiful post, Katherine ~ I saw one of those bushes in a garden shop recently, and it was gorgeous. I love that song on the video and am glad she can show the entire video now.

Have a blessed Easter to you and your family. Thank you for stopping by and good luck in my giveaway.

Hi-I found you through Susan at Penless Writer. I just had to come by and see the Orchid photos which I did, and they're lovely. I wish I was a plant person, but I'm not. So, I enjoy those who are! I also peeked on down and especially loved your display of the crown of thorns. We live in Phoenix, and we have several bouganvilla bushes in our yard, so I need to clip some vines and make a crown of thorns. God's richest blessings upon you and your family, and have a wonderful weekend! In Christ-Kathy
