The Easter Nail.

On a cross that was carved from one simple tree, Jesus suffered and died for the world to see.

Crowned by sharp thorns, pierced, and broken by nails, his enemies were certain

Christ's ministry failed. But soon it was clear that his death had assured

Our life everlasting, through the pain he endured.

At that sorrowful moment, we all gained our connection to the wonder and joy

Of His Easter morn resurrection.

Hang this nail in your home,

Forever to be the sign of God's promise of eternity.  (Anon)
