Artful Friday~ Palm Crosses, Rosettes, Knots and Scripture Verses

~Friends, welcome on this Good Friday~
Well, this has been a week of,
among other things ( ! ) 
crazy and beautiful palms~~
 examining step by step rose making and
sticking creations behind pictures, in pots, on windowsills
and hanging from doorknobs all over the house!
For those readers who may not be Catholic/Christian~
Palm Sunday, also known as Passion Sunday, 
falls on the Sunday prior to Easter and commemorates 
Jesus's triumphant entry into Jerusalem. 
This event is mentioned in all four of the Gospels:
Matthew 21:1-11
Mark 11: 1-10
Luke 19: 28-40
John 12: 12-50
This Bible is our mainstay as well as this resource
for Bible and Church history.

If you'd like to know more about the Catholic faith,
if you left  the Church  and would like to return home,
nothing would make us happier!
Please email me and I will gladly connect you with a priest 
who will help you and 
with whom you can share your thoughts and concerns........

Now, here's a collection of some of my son's crosses and roses~~
the rest were given away to friends, neighbors, his guitar teacher...
