The Cross, the Egg, and the Lamb

"Look up from earth, O weary souls,"
Sweet Easter angels sing, 
"Jesus the Lord is risen indeed,
Of men and angels king."
Greeting from an Antique Postcard





When Jesus was crucified, the cross was a symbol of suffering.  
After the resurrection of Christ,
the cross became a symbol of Jesus' victory over death.


The colorful eggs that are associated with Easter 
are a symbol of the rock tomb out of which Christ emerged
to the new life of His Resurrection.


The lamb is the most significant symbol of the Easter holiday
since the lamb is said to represent Christ --
The Lamb of God.



Wishing you a Blessed Easter!


Until next time, live and love well.
