Lamb of God...free printable

I love the symbols of my liturgical roots...and I love the image of Jesus as the Lamb of God...I have been waiting for Holy Week to offer this as a free printable...it is sized at 8.5" by 11" and 300 dpi.  It does have a white frame around it.  The words are inspired by a post written by Ann Voskamp.  When you click the download link (my flickr account) there is another image with no text to choose if you like...


Please share with other who might like this?  And leave a comment letting me know(?) - I would love to know this is a blessing to you this week...

We are attempting to observe Passover customs in our house this week.  The lamb without blemish was to be taken into the house for about 4 days prior to the Passover...this gave the head of the house time to observe that the lamb was indeed without blemish and worthy, but it also insured a relationship with the sweet little thing would have begun...the slaying and eating of the lamb would have been a great sacrifice, and remorse would have been a natural emotion during the Passover meal...followed by the excitement and awe of being freed from bondage!  

We don't have any little lambs, and I thought of perhaps a stuffed animal, but my husband came up with the perfect idea - the traditional Easter lamb cake needed to be baked early, and kept around for a few days, then we would literally eat it for Passover!  So it is sitting on our kitchen island!  Baked, not frosted yet...and no image for you!  But just the idea...sweet tweener has been collecting walking sticks for herself for several weeks, and we will gather them to have as we prepare for our "journey"...

We are reviewing the final week of Jesus' life for Bible and some of our language and history work...it is making this week very powerful as the emotional fervor rises in Jerusalem - and the epic tale grips our hearts as any good novel would - with one difference...this is for real, for eternity, for us!
