Weekly Photo Challenge: The Hue of You ~ Covered

Cross necklace given to me by a friend

The challenge this week is to “share a photograph with a prominent color (or assortment of colors) that reveals more about you.”

Red describes me perfectly.  My sins are covered by the shed blood of Jesus Christ. 

“Blessed are those whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered.”
Romans 4:7
KJV

The Lovely Cross?

Unlovely Cross

Some of them are worn as earrings,
some dangled on chains about the neck.
Most call crosses beautiful,
But that depends on Who you ask.

Used to decorate our T-shirts,
Displayed on colored window glass.
Yet, for Christ, the Cross meant pain and death,
If not for us, He would’ve passed.

He died but once; that’s all it took,
Redeeming love, our souls to win.
But if not so, and it took more,
He’d surely do it all again.

The Cross, to us, will always be
A sweet reminder of Christ’s love.
Although for Him, it was not pretty,
He endured it all, for joy above.

“Looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him ENDURED the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”
Hebrews 12:2
NKJV
