Walk with Me

Want to go to Jerusalem today?  I did, in the footsteps of Simon of Cyrene.

Every time I see the movie "The Passion of the Christ", I am struck by the man who helped Jesus carry His cross.  I somehow could relate with him more than anyone in the story.

Yesterday I was with Jesus in the dungeon (as in this online reflection) and today I walked along Calvary with Him.  

Somehow in my life the Lord has let my heart break for what breaks His just like in the song.

"Open up my eyes to the things unseen
Show me how to love like you have loved me
Break my heart from what breaks yours
Everything I am for your kingdoms cause
As I go from nothing to eternity" 

- Hosanna, Hillsong United

I love your art! I especially love the picture of Mary holding her adult son's body. It is so touching as my boys are 21 and it made my heart break.

Dear Shanda,
I cannot imagine what Mary felt at the time and I believe that now despite whatever pain that comes, love truly heals all these and never fails in the end!

Dear Ramona, wow, I'm so happy to hear that! I want to feature some of inspirational the songs I've composed over the years here too.

Dear Denise, thank you ever so much for your visit!

Dear Jennifer, thank you for liking my art!

Bless you all! :)
