Baking with Crosses

" . . . I am the way and the truth and the life.  No one comes to the Father except through me."         John 14:6

Cutting Crosses from Store-Bought Pie Dough
After a goosebump-raising, tear-welling Easter service at Troy United Methodist Church which included a thought-provoking slideshow of cross images, I realized there are reminders of Jesus' ultimate sacrifice all around us, for example, in the grids in windows, patterns in rugs, and logos on planes.  So, I thought why not reinforce this ideal with my partner-in-crime, my squirt, while baking a pie. . .
Layering the crosses on top . . .

  1. That is so cool. What a great idea :) After the slide show, I too, started seeing crosses everywhere! I want to remember to see crosses in my everyday life now. In rememberance of Him.
