He was broken for me.

 “From noon until three in the afternoon darkness came over all the land. About three in the afternoon Jesus cried out in a loud voice, “Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?” (which means “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”)…  And when Jesus had cried out again in a loud voice, he gave up his spirit.”

[Matthew 27:45-46, 50]

    Fact is more awesome than fiction every time. At least this fact is.

  3. Beautiful post. A simple broken chair, crushed by too much weight, bringing into focus our LORD’s body broken for us, crushed by the weight of our sins. Thank you for sharing this visual representation of Jesus, our substitute, our reconciliation, our peace. Blessings to you, Carol…

    Wonderful post, Carol. Blessings to you and your family at Easter. And every other day too.

  5. It’s an astounding love that would take such undeserved punishment on my behalf, when I’m the one who deserves it. Easter blessings to all of you.

    The broken chair got me, as I thought about what you were saying with this photo. It’s a powerful image.

    I hope you and your family had a Happy Easter.

I'd love to hear from you!
