Palm Sunday




Each Palm Sunday the lights on "The Cross" are changed from blue to red, a silent reminder, visible over much of our city, of the greatest love-gift and sacrifice in all history. I believe the consternation is about a corroded light fitting.




Gradually winched upward again.




Next Sunday, Easter Sunday, the red will be replaced by blue again.




Master J left the serious business to the older men while he flew the "Fling" on which he has recently replaced the original, aged brittle translucent purple cover for a beautiful clear film.




I love seeing the balsa wood, quite a beautiful product to work with and enjoy.

When we lived over that side of town I could always see the cross from my bedroom window- a great reminder every night as I went to bed!

Angie said...

This is a beautiful post, Karen. And I loved Master J's flying his plane. :)

A timely reminder of what Easter is about. The plane soaring through the sky surveying natures glory.

Krzyż będzie z pewnością widoczny z daleka, stoi na wzgórzu. Pięknie wygląda samolot Twojego syna, z którego pewno się cieszy, na tle błękitnego nieba. Pozdrawiam serdecznie.*** Cross will certainly be visible from a distance, standing on a hill. It looks beautiful your son's plane, which surely is happy against a blue sky. Best regards.

I love that the cross is so public. Great photos.

It's so good that you still have the freedom to place that Cross on the hill....and what a witness it is to such a supreme sacrifice.

Deanna said...

Looks like you had a beautiful day. Have a blessed Holy Week.
