The Crucifix: What do you see?
What do you see when you look at a crucifix? What comes to your mind when you gaze upon a cross? What thoughts, what ideas, and what memories and feelings come to your heart when you kneel and pray at a crucifix?
A war is raging in Ukraine. Perhaps if everyone erected a crucifix upon their front lawn and planted sunflowers in faith, hope, and love for God and life, the war might end.
The crucifix I erected in front of my home represents the sacrifice Jesus Christ made for humanity two thousand years ago. Take heart. Jesus is reborn! Within the faithful Christ lives anew and as we pray together anything is possible. Miracles happen.
My dearest mother, La Faye Sumner Lynch, died in 2003. I prayed to God that He spare her life. God answered my prayer and she returned from the light. But her mind was gone. She opened her eyes. But she was not present. She had dementia.
Dementia is a horrible disease; it tears families apart. It tears nations apart. I believe Putin has dementia and it is tearing Ukraine apart. Putin's dementia is threatening to tear the world apart!
What do you see when you look at a crucifix? What comes to your mind? What comes to your heart?
The crucifix I constructed in front of my home on Anderson Street was created from wire, tin cans, plastic bottles, and other recycled materials. Is it garbage or is it ART?
I am going blind. Already I cannot see with one eye. But I can still see with the other eye as well as ever I could with two eyes. And I have not lost sight of God.
As I look upon the crucifix I built, I see God. I see Jesus Christ. I see and feel the Holy Spirit. What do you see?
The Trinity is the foundation of the church. Perhaps if everyone erected a crucifix in front of their home and planted sunflowers it would save the world.
Ukraine is in peril. The world is in peril. What do you see when you look upon the cross?
My dear mother was the daughter of a Methodist minister, Columbus Lafayette Sumner. I dedicated the humble cross I built from recycled materials to my dear mother. It is a memorial to her. You can dedicate the crucifix you erect in front of your home to someone you love, be they living or dead. Together all our faith, hope, and love may save the world.
Let us pray for Ukraine. Heavenly Father, Grant us the wisdom to make right choices. Guide us toward the light. Save the people of Ukraine. Save the world! In your name we pray. Amen.
My dear mother's spirit lives within me. When I look upon the crucifix I built, I see my dear mother and the Holy Trinity. What do you see? Do you see God, the devil, or Jesus Christ? Indeed, what do you see?
After I erected the crucifix in front of my home, I was inspired to write a song which I entitled Garbage or ART? If you are a singer write to me and I may share it with you email@example.com
Yes, I am going blind. But I can still see as well as ever with one eye as I could with two eyes. Thus I urge everyone to erect a crucifix in front of your home. Plant sunflowers and pray for Ukraine. Pray to save the world!
Perhaps God will restore my sight. Do you believe in miracles? If so, please donate to Terry's Fund at: https://www.paypal.me/terrysfund or via PayPal.com to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you.
Eye surgery will cost $20,000.00+. I am asking everyone to erect a crucifix and plant sunflowers upon their front lawn. Pray for Ukraine and pray to save the world. Miracles do happen. I know because I too have seen the light. Thank you and God bless you and those you love.
