The latest Salt Challenge is to make something that shows the true meaning of Easter. Triple the Sketch's layout this week is this
After combining both challenges, this is what I came up with.
For the branch embellishment, I did paper piercing instead. And the two squares are two stanzas of the hymn. The lovely font is called "Missed Your Exit" from kevinaandamanda.com. Instead of circles, I used There She Goes' Flowers of Happiness set.
I printed the last two verses of one of my favorite modern hymns by Stuart Townend called "How Deep the Father's Love for Us." Every time I hear that song, I can't help but be overwhelmed with gratitude for God's abounding love for us. The depth of His love is only realized through understanding the sacrifice and worthiness of Christ. Here's the rest of the song.
How vast beyond all measure
That He should give His only Son
To make a wretch His treasure
How great the pain of searing loss,
The Father turns His face away
As wounds which mar the chosen One,
Bring many sons to glory
Behold the Man upon a cross,
My sin upon His shoulders
Ashamed I hear my mocking voice,
Call out among the scoffers
It was my sin that held Him there
Until it was accomplished
His dying breath has brought me life
I know that it is finished
I will not boast in anything
No gifts, no power, no wisdom
But I will boast in Jesus Christ
His death and resurrection
Why should I gain from His reward?
I cannot give an answer
But this I know with all my heart
His wounds have paid my ransom
