On this day in between the cross and the stone rolled away I’m doing some art.
This project has been in some form of process since October of 2009, but today it finally got a name: CREATOR REDEEMER.
What better time to get it worked on than this day of waiting.
“And a man named Joseph, who was a member fo the Council, a good and righteous man (he had not consented to their plan and action), a man from Arimathea, a city of the Jews, who was waiting for the kingdom of God; this man went to Pilate and asked for the body of Jesus. And he took it down and wrapped in a linen cloth, and laid him in a tomb cut into the rock, where no one had ever lain. It was the preparation day and the Sabbath was about to begin. Now the women how had come with Him out of Galilee followed, and saw the tomb and how His body was laid. Then they returned and prepared spices and perfumes. And on the Sabbath they rested according to the commandment.” Luke 23:50-56.
I keep pondering what this day of rest was like for Mary and the disciples. They weren’t waiting like we do – they didn’t realize they had something to wait for. It must have been devastating!
They did not know the glory that was about to be revealed.
