Our family viewed at The Blanton yesterday on Good Friday. Notice Pilate touching Jesus arm.
The world becomes quiet.
Quiet waiting before The Lord in prayer will give Him a chance to change your mood. The situation may not change, but you will have changed for the better in spite of the situation” Robert A. Cook
Psalm 88 v.1,2 is a cry of desperation Lord, God of my salvation, I cry out before You day and night. May my prayer reach Your Presence; listen to my cry.
There are times we must walk dark valleys and we can only get on our face before Him and plead.
Our hearts are so tainted we let sin bloom dark.
Jesus let the eyes of our hearts open to Your calling.
When words escape you let quiet rest in your soul and sing softly and praise His wonders.
Jesus took the penalty of our sin, your sin, and my sin.
When Jesus died on the cross our sin was covered with His blood.
He died in our place.
“But He was pierced because of our transgressions, crushed because of our iniquities; punishment for our peace was on Him, and we are healed by His wounds.” Isaiah 53:5
His Words spoken out loud heal our wounds.
Praying for each of you!
2 Corinthians 5:21

Art–whether visual or in words like the poetry of psalm–can communicate so powerfully and intimately. That touch. Yes, even Pilate surely longed to touch the man who stood silent before him, this King of the Jews.
It was powerful to view sacred art in a quiet place. Thank you for your beautiful words Ann. It read like a devotion to me …hearing you speaking about Pilate.
Needed! So grateful I stumbled upon your blog!!
