Lift High The Cross

Here is my finished product for the first  2013 Hymn Challenge that Patter Cross hosts.  Click on her name to check it out and do the challenge as well.  The name of the hymn this week was "Lift High The Cross."  It was convicting to meditate on this over the weekend and into the week.  It's an overwhelming concept to me still to this day what Jesus did on the cross for me.  It is a gift that forever changed my life.  It's a gift that excites my soul inside.  Yet, there are times, days, weeks that I am really not proclaiming that gift.  Do I share what Christ has done for me and in me out loud?  Not near enough!  It is my daily desire to proclaim His goodness and "Lift High The Cross."  So here is a little tangible item to remind me to do exactly that.
