Welcome To; March's Offering
Take Up Your Cross!
Luke 9:18-28 And it came to pass, as he was alone praying, his disciples were with him: and he asked them, saying, Whom say the people that I am? They answering said, John the Baptist; but some say, Elias; and others say, that one of the old prophets is risen again. He said unto them, But whom say ye that I am? Peter answering said, The Christ of God. And he straitly charged them, and commanded them to tell no man that thing; Saying, The Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be slain, and be raised the third day.
23 And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.24 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it.25 For what is a man advantaged, if he gain the whole world, and lose himself, or be cast away?26 For whosoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words, of him shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he shall come in his own glory, and in his Father's, and of the holy angels.27 But I tell you of a truth, there be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the kingdom of God.28 And it came to pass about an eight days after these sayings, he took Peter and John and James, and went up into a mountain to pray.

Ephesians 2:10-17 10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.11 Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands;
12 That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world:13 But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.14 For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us;15 Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace;
16 And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby:17 And came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh.rejoiced greatly that I found of thy children walking in truth, as we have received a commandment from the Father. And now I beseech thee, lady, not as though I wrote a new commandment unto thee, but that which we had from the beginning, that we love one another. and this is love, that we walk after his commandments This is the commandment, That, as ye have heard from the beginning, ye should walk in it.

I celebrate my Cross as well as the Celtic Cross. the Celtic Cross first emerged across the island of Ireland in the early Middle Ages. Following the arrival of the Celts from 500 B.C and on wards, this magnificent symbol became widespread across the landscape of Ireland with many still remaining today. The Celtic Cross' construction features a traditional cross accentuated with a circle around the intersection of the arms and stem.
The Celtic Cross represents knowledge, strength and compassion to overcome the trails and temptations of Life . by the power of the Cross of Christ Example. The four arms of the Celtic Cross are representative of the four directions of the compassion, the four elements of Fire, Earth, Air and Water, and as a representation of our mind, soul, body and heart. The center ring of the Celtic Cross is the Celtic symbol for infinite love. With no beginning and no end, it is a symbolism of God’s endless love with many believing that it is also a depiction of the halo of Christ.
I celebrate and Honor St Patrick of Ireland . Saint Patrick, Latin term for "father figure"is the patron saint of Ireland. St Patrick was born Maewyn Succat, it's recorded that he changed his name to Patricius, or Patrick,
