Grace... one simple word, that, to me, encapsulates the day we call Easter.
"Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead..." I Peter 1:3
And here, for you, is a sweet and simple little motif to stitch however you would like...
Left click on your mouse for an enlarged version, then right click and save to your computer.
I picture it to be stitched with DMC 221, 680, 3051, 3064, and Ecru, like this...
As always, feel free to use whatever colors you desire, and use them in whatever way you wish... and I would be very grateful if you gave credit to me if you post photos or links anywhere online, or offer your finished goods up for sale.
Thanks, and everyone have a safe and blessed weekend!
See the land, her Easter keeping,
Rises as her Maker rose.
Seeds, so long in darkness sleeping,
Burst at last from winter snows.
Earth with heaven above rejoices;
Fields and gardens hail the spring;
Shaughs and woodlands ring with voices,
While the wild birds build and sing.
You, to whom your Maker granted
Powers to those sweet birds unknown,
Use the craft by God implanted;
Use the reason not your own.
Here, while heaven and earth rejoices,
Each his Easter tribute bring-
Work of fingers, chant of voices,
Like the birds who build and sing.
