In the hush and awe of this Holy Week, O Lord, let your Word pillow our hearts in the greatness of your all encompassing Love… poured out in your blood shed for us, so much more than we really know… and fill us with fresh anticipation to meet with you each day…
O LORD, in the morning you hear my voice;
in the morning I prepare a sacrifice for you and watch…
~ Psalm 5:3 (English Standard Version)
When I was working on this drawing on Good Friday a few years ago, I kept thinking how the top part of windows like these remind me of the sun bursting forth. Finishing and standing back from it, I could suddenly see the cross running through the center of the picture. If you follow the line of the table on up, it forms a cross at the top part of the window, and then is like conquering joy at the top. (Not planned – by me anyway…) Can you see it? Even the curtains pulled back remind me of Matthew 27:51 — the curtain in the Temple torn when the Lord conquered death…and LIGHT reigned!
You, O Lord, are my shepherd…
You treat me to a feast,
while my enemies watch.
You honor me as your guest,
and you fill my cup
until it overflows.
Your kindness and love
will always be with me
each day of my life,
and I will live forever
in your house, Lord.
~ Psalm 23 (Contemporary English Version)
BLESSED RESURRECTION JOY TO EACH AS HOLY WEEK BEGINS !
P.S. — A note about “In The Morning Room”, shown above
Inspired by the thought of the movie Morning Room in Daphne Du’Maurier’s “Rebecca,” the radiant sunrise window in this drawing always speaks to me of God’s invitation to His Table, how He Rises His Glory over us, makes our joy new every morning…
