True Love is God's Heart, blessed/given to us through Christ...

Here are some haikus I wrote for another thread here :)

Here is my first try at a haiku :)

All glory to God
The Alpha and Omega
Now for Him we live

Christ crucified, died
His life He gave willingly
That we rise with Him
Due to His great love
Upon the cross He hung, One
Christ's blood shed for all
Lowly like a lamb
Master of the universe
Holds us in His hands
Prophesies fulfilled
Miracles performed for us
Sacrificial Lamb
Beholden to Him
Jesus, Lord, and Savior King
All to Him we owe

Age of innocence
Violation in garden
Thank God for Jesus!

Only begotten
From before Earth's foundation
Son of God and man
Broken, hurting, lost
I found myself at the cross
Now bow before Him
Sin found dominion
Pride, lust, greed, envy, sloth, wrath
Overcome through Christ
Undignified death
Spat upon, scourged, crucified
"Father, forgive them."
What more can be said?
Jesus arose from the dead
Lover of my soul
Name above all names
Way to God, Truth, Life, Light, Love
Your Name is Holy
Redeemed through His blood
The simplicity of Christ's
Everlasting love

I am going to start putting some of my graphic creations here :)

I have been working on this one for the last two days.
I started out by looking for a duck pond type image
to float my swans in, and this is what happened instead :eek:
So my creative process is fairly unpredictable LOL




About three weeks ago, shortly after I started making graphic templates for
Scriptures, I got the idea to do an "I AM" series. ^^ This is the first of them :D

It never fails: I post an image, and then realize I want to make another change to it :p

This one has the stairs (representing "the way") slightly straightened. The three crosses at the foot of the tree represent two different things: Golgotha, where Jesus gave His life as an atoning sacrifice for the sins of the world due to His great love for us, and also the (second) death of those who refuse His offer of forgiveness and grace due to their being too grounded in the world. I also added a couple of more shining lights: one between the words "Way" and "Truth," and the other behind the hand of Jesus :) I also lightened up the font a bit :D

I must say that this is one of your better ones. :) Some of them look too cluttered, especially at the bottom...

I had a lot of fun making this for everyone this week:



I made this one for Kim first, in appreciation of all she does for everyone
here, as well as to acknowledge her extraordinary kindness toward me:

Here is the second image again, with the inevitable changes: :rolleyes:



This image certainly got cluttered with all the Unis that showed up for the party :D

graven imagines are something that the world worships and serves...

but, never be one that is fooled, discern what you are looking at with the
discerning heart of what our Father has given to you - it's always a two-way street + ,
look beyond what you think you are seeing...:rolleyes::)

It is written.

Matthew 5:19 King James Version (KJV)
19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

that's not even related...

and those aren't graven images to worship...

you're outta line and don't even see it


a few times now i've seen you pointing your finger and falsely accusing...

that judgemental attitude is going to do you well

you might as well call a poster with a verse on it a graven image....

no one is going to worship the poster
it gives glory to God and points to His inspired written word the bible (which you also don't worship the bible itself by reading it... you seek Him by reading it)

it's not like praying to a statue or rosary or a false idol
