The EASTER EGG

Standard

Hi!

Last night I woke up thinking about easter eggs.  I did a little quick sketch and then went back to sleep.  This morning I worked on my idea.  This is my end result.

I want you to think about easter eggs and what they mean to you.   You see, I might think I know what they mean to you, but I really don’t.  Just like you don’t know what they mean to me.  Are they just shells filled with yolk that you color for fun or is there a deeper meaning?

And what is an egg anyway?  Is it the beginning of new life?  When cracked open it spills out this bright color that only God could create.   I marvel at the yolky, yellow, orange hue every time I crack an egg.   We can eat it, drink it, boil it, crack it, wash our hair with it, scramble it,  and give it to the dog for a shine in his coat.

Now it’s empty.  Nothing is there.  It reminds me of the empty tomb.  Empty but not gone. A body that has been  unwrapped, raised and resurrected.   Filled with new life.

A cross that is empty. A Savior who LIVES, LOVES and SAVES.

A Savior who watches & waits…for YOU!
