The Old Rugged Cross

Today I will be sharing with y'all my favorite Easter post from last year...it's my "OLD RUGGED CROSS"...I love it so much, that it went back up this year. Yes...I'm sitting here today on this beautiful Sunday afternoon thinking how thankful I am for all I have in my life. Thanks for coming by and if you are one of my new friends, then I guess this will be new to you and for all my long time friends...I hope you enjoy it again.

Easter is two weeks away and in church today we sang one of my favorite songs...THE OLD RUGGED CROSS. When I was trying to decide what I wanted to put on my front door for Easter this year...the idea of a CROSS with a frame came to mind and this is how it looks. My CROSS might not look rugged but it reminds me daily that Christ died for us and when I see it there on my door...my heart is filled with joy...because one day I will get to meet him...what a wonderful day that will be!I found the frame in the clearance section...$23.99...I paid $4.80!I got the cross for $6.00 with a 40% off coupon...I love that you can print as many Hobby Lobby coupons that you want...I never pay full price at HL!

Don't forget to get your THRIFTY goodies ready for NIFTY THRIFTY TUESDAYS...hope to see you there!

I've never thought to put a cross on the door, but yours looks fantastic! How very appropriate during the Lenten season. So pretty and such great deals! Thanks for sharing.

Amen!

I like that hymn. My fave one for Easter is "Christ Arose." I have been singing "Crown Him with Many Crowns" all day today. Our church does not start-up again here at the lake until Easter.

Your cross is so pretty! What a nice way to commemorate Easter :D

Have a blessed week!

Like laxsupermom, I too never thought of using a cross as a door decor but love the way yours turned out. I think you may have just started a new trend.

How pretty. I collect crosses, probably have close to 100. I have a big iron one on the wall by my front door. I think I will try one in a frame now.

"for 'twas on that old cross Jesus suffered and died, to pardon and sanctify me." Amen!

That is a beautiful cross and it is great to remind us of His suffering and death but also His resurrection.

We often forget the Reason for the Season. I love the cross....I only have one cross out right now for Easter....I plan to get more crosses out. Thanx for the spiritual reminder and blessings. tiff

Tammy said...

How beautiful is your cross and frame.......I love your post!!! So true...I have a rugged cross outside my front door. Okay...actually two different types....and they do remind me of what Jesus has done for all of us.
I just want you to know that you are a blessing....and may you always be blessed!!!!

Oh, Linda I too am so thankful for the cross and what it represents. The crucifixion was such an ugly part of a beautiful story of love. "There is wonderful power in the blood".

My favorite Easter song is Down The Via Dolarosa. It is such a powerful song.

Thanks for this...and I love your framed cross.

I've never seen a cross on the door, but I really like the look and the sentiment behind it. Very pretty.

Emily@LovelyBeasts said...

Great deal on that beautiful frame! And thanks for the kind comment on my finds. I'm so glad you stopped by my blog. I'll definitely join your party on Tuesday!

That is just beautiful Linda! You've inspired me to add a cross to the wreath on my front door so that all who drive by will know that Easter to us is so much more than bunnies and eggs. :-)
Blessings,
Vanessa

I truly love this project! It's such a sweet way to honor the Easter Holiday!

My Wonderfully Made said...

A beautiful project and a reminder that this project cost you little (as do most of mine!) but the gift of eternal life was very costly -- the life of God's Son! Thanks for the reminder!

Lynn@ The Vintage Nest said...

Tammy @ Type A said...

It's beautiful. I was raised to believe you should not worship the cross. It was sac relig because that was like worshiping his death not his life. As I've grown to develope my own opinion I find them to be so beautiful and I really have a new appreciation for them. I would be delighted if you would link this up to my VIP party Friday =)
Cheers! Sommer
