overwhelming thanks

I woke up this morning with a heavy heart. 
Thinking about the cross and all He's done for me. 
Good Friday. 
Today it is good. 
But as Jesus was nailed to the cross, I'm sure there didn't seem to be anything good about it. 
And so my heart is heavy. 
So much emotion built up inside me...
...shame, sadness, joy, thankfulness, gratitude, guilt...

...but mostly thankfulness.

Thank You for your love that has set my heart free. I wish I could paint like this. Watercolor is SUCH a difficult medium. 
It's too much for my heart to comprehend.
But when I stop and really think about what He's done, I'm thankful.
His blood = grace = freedom.
Complete freedom.

 “For by the blood of Christ we are set free, that is, our sins are forgiven. How great is the grace of God.”

I've been holding back the tears all day - I too have a heavy heart. His life ending on my cross gave me a forever future of unconditional love with God & my Savior. (Cannot even comprehend... but I am grateful, so grateful.) XO. Praise!!
