WOYWW: Easter Greetings!


Happy Easter greetings to you, my dear blog friends!  Even if you don't celebrate Easter, I think greetings of happiness are always good to give and receive!


On my desk today for What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday is an illustration I am working on from yesterday's bible reading..  Sometimes when life is full of challenges, we wonder why our prayers seem unheard and God seems to be hiding.  The reflection about John 20, from an anonymous 13th century monastic homily says...

“She turned around and saw Jesus standing there but did not recognize him.” A touching scene, filled with goodness, in which he who is desired and sought reveals himself while hiding himself. He hides himself so as to be sought even more ardently, found with even more joy, held even more carefully until he is brought, so as to remain there, into the dwelling place of love (cf Sg 3,4)...

“Woman, why are you weeping? Whom are you looking for?” Do you have him you are looking for and not know him? The true, eternal joy and you weep? You have within you the one you are looking for without. In truth, you are standing outside in floods of tears beside a tomb. My tomb is your heart. I am not dead in it but resting, alive for eternity. Your soul is my garden and you are right to think I am the gardener. The new Adam, I tend and keep my paradise. Your tears, your love and your desire are my work. You possess me within you without knowing it and that is why you seek me without. So I am going to appear to you there, too, to make you return to yourself so as to find within what you are looking for without.



To celebrate Easter, I'm having a giveaway!  If you would like a chance to win this original mixed media piece, please leave a comment in my giveaway post (not this post).  Don't forget to leave me separate comments if you are a follower or if you share my giveaway.

Hi Peggy,

Happy Easter to you too! As always, I enjoyed your post today. What better way to think of the Lord, as a gardner. Tilling the soil awaiting for us to sprout and grow!

G'day Peggy
Its only my second week doing WOYWW. I'm late again as I have had two huge busy days and just had no time to get to the computer. As well as when Julia posts the WOYWW post I am at work and its already in the evening here on Wednesday by then LOL. Even so I'm glad I took time now to drop into your desk again to see some more of your beautiful art work...love all you do!!
