The weather outside my window this morning looked more like Christmas than Easter, in fact, we did not have snow this past Christmas.


I always look forward to Easter even more than Christmas, perhaps because there’s not as much commercialism, but mostly because it is such a powerful demonstration of God’s love for everyone!


Easter week I was asked to print a scripture verse (John 1:1) on the arch of a wall in the hallway of a local church where I have taught liturgical dance for 20 years.

John 1:1I painted freehand without a stencil.

ladder 1ladder 2This morning I did a liturgical dance with banners, to an inspirational song by Michael W. Smith, Agnus Dei.



  Wishing you and yours peace and joy!!

Love and blessings!!

    Hi Carmen,
    I meant to stop by and wish you a Happy Easter. I did a post that took me 15 min about my Ukrainian family traditions. It means alot to celebrate the meaning of each Holiday. You did a great job painting and I am sure your dance was lovely!!

    Have a great week! xxjess

      Thank you my dear Jess! The arts are a wonderful way to celebrate holidays and thank God for His blessings!! Traditions help us to remember and keep alive the meanings of the holidays.

      Have a blessed week!

  3. Love this for so many reasons. The emphasis on Christ, your gorgeous
    hand lettering of the Scripture, finding out you dance, and that the printing was in purple.

    Your love for Jesus shines through you.
    Keep on encouraging.
    Love, Melinda

      Thank you my dear Ute! It was not easy and I risked my life standing at the very top of the ladder when I was painting the top (not like you see me here on the ladder). My back was hurting as I stood sideways for an extended period of time and It made me think of Michael Angelo. 🙂

      Easter blessings!
