a cross with beads and a bucket list

by karen #1965 3rd grade teacher Sunday, April 4, is EASTER SUNDAY...so, it is time for a little preachy post...so you see...i did this cross here for my friend...
and it is probably 1 1/2 feet x 1 foot...i did it cause i had a lot of beads and i had a lot of wire...and i thought...hmmm...i need to do something with these beads and wire...so i did...i wrapped the wire...and wrapped it...and wrapped it...and then i attached the beads...and then i gave the cross AWAY ...

you know what JESUS gave AWAY?...HE gave HIS life away...on the cross...so i could make the cross for a friend...so i could live forever and ever with HIM in Heaven...i sometimes wonder what HE will have me doing in Heaven...i sure hope it is something artsy like putting beads on the angels' halos...and not organizing stuff in the mansions...but i will do whatever with a happy face smile cause it is infinity times better than being with that old bad devil and his bad self...that devil has caused me a buncha confusion on planet earth...i am not gonna miss him when i get to the end of my time to check off my bucket list...i found this art when i googled bucket list...i liked it...look.
hey u...go to church on Easter Sunday and other Sundays if you like...have you ever been to worship and said..???..hmmm.???..i wish i would not have gone..???.probably not...usually you are always glad you went...it is like when you go out and run or walk a few miles...when you are done, do you say..???.dang, i wish i would not have done that?....nope...you just look at yourself in the mirror and i am sure glad i went out for that walk...

when i die i want this song played at my funeral...it is an Easter Sunday song...and i always am kinda sad when they don't sing it...i guess if i die near Easter, it will be okay...but, it i die some other time...well it will be kinda weird.........but hey, there could be worse things....i could want jingle bells played at my funeral...here is the song...if i don't hear it Sunday morning, well i guess i can come home and check it out on you tube...Low in the Grave He Lay...i don't know who this chick is...but i liked her...had a hard time finding a decent version of this amazing song...this jessica chick...tho...she rocks it out pretty good...

Low in the grave He lay, Jesus my Savior,
Waiting the coming day, Jesus my Lord!


Refrain


Up from the grave He arose,
With a mighty triumph o’er His foes,
He arose a Victor from the dark domain,
And He lives forever, with His saints to reign.
He arose! He arose!
Hallelujah! Christ arose!
Vainly they watch His bed, Jesus my Savior;
Vainly they seal the dead, Jesus my Lord!


Refrain


Death cannot keep its Prey, Jesus my Savior;
He tore the bars away, Jesus my Lord!


Refrain
(Robert Lowry, 1826-1899)

Happy March 30, 2010!

  1. i was just thinking after i did this post that you could buy some cheap metal buckets and write your bucket list on there...it would be something fun to do with a friend...and fill the bucket up with things you did while checking off that bucket list...like if you put...say...going to Haiti to help out over there...well you could put a delta plane ticket in the bucket...i don't know where this comment came from...but i felt the need to express myself a bit more...1965
