What if they had been silent? (Free Printable)

Easter / Resurrection Bible Verse Sign for Palm Sunday | by mamasbrush

If the people were silent, the rocks would cry out. Luke 19:40

Easter is often a much smaller affair than Christmas. This bothers me, yet, I struggle with how to make it different. Because everyone makes a big deal of Christmas for a whole month, maybe even because Christmas is so commercialized, it is easy to make the time for it… to spend the energy… to get carried away.

Every year I’ve said that I want to make a bigger deal of celebrating Easter… beyond the day. Some years we do more, some years it passes before we know what’s happening.

This year, having Christ centered artwork like this one and this one (shameless plug for my store) to decorate our home has helped me to anticipate the approach of Easter.

lI continue to work to figure out how to celebrate the sacrifice God made for us when He sent His Son to die on the cross for our sins in meaningful, celebratory and deliberate ways. I strive again to make time for it as Holy Week begins.

If the people were silent, the rocks would cry out. Luke 19:40

Yesterday was Palm Sunday. Our pastor preached on the triumphal entry and I knew I wanted to spend some more time thinking about and meditating on it. I love Luke 19:40 where Jesus says that if the people were not praising Him, the rocks themselves would cry out in praise! What a great picture that is in my mind. Last night, I designed a sign to help us remember that this week and I wanted to share it with you.

Print it out and frame it or tack it up or put it on the fridge. Let it help you remember to praise Him this week as we remember what He did to save us from our sins! All we have to do is believe that He is who he says He is and that He did what he said He did and follow Him with our lives! I praise Him for that and I believe!

Would you share this post so others can have the opportunity to print this sign for themselves? Thanks for helping me get the word out!

Empty Tomb Print in a Farmhouse Style

“Blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed!”
~John 20:29~

This is a digitized watercolor print I took out of my art journal. I shared it here a few years ago. I just love this verse… how Jesus was talking about me!

It is similar to the print I shared in my last post, but this one has a more farmhouse feel in my opinion… less whimsy. My husband definitely likes this one better than the other (I love both!)

Let me know in the comments… which one is your favorite? This one or the one with the bunny?

This digital download is also available in my Etsy store as an 8×10 and 5×7 print (you get both sizes for one price) for you to download and print yourself.

He is Risen-Empty Tomb Print for Easter

I told you yesterday that I opened my own Etsy shop, so some of you may have seen these in that post, but I want to share a little more about them. You may have seen my original watercolor version from a few years ago, but I had gifted that painting to a dear friend, so I I wanted to recreate it this year.

I love to find ways to incorporate the true celebration of Easter into our spring decor. This little bunny print, peeking into the empty tomb just makes me smile! 🙂 I love the touch of whimsy it can add to a child’s space, family room, or in my case, the kitchen. (I do plan to put this in my children’s bedroom, but the lighting in there is terrible, so I took the pics here.)

You can find these digital download in 8×10 and 5×7 sizes in my Etsy shop here. You can print it and display it in no time.

Empty Tomb Watercolor Card for Easter – Hand Lettered Matthew 28:6

Update March 2022: An updated version of this artwork is available on my Etsy Shop for instant download.

Empty Tomb Watercolor Card for Easter - Hand Lettered Matthew 28:6

Last year I shared an empty tomb illustration from my art journal, but I was wanting to do something like it again. This time, I selected Matthew 28:6, “He is not here, for he is risen!”

I wanted to add some color this time, so you’ve got grass and a flower. When the bunny idea hopped (see what I did there?) into my head, I just couldn’t help myself. I love that it looks like he’s bending his head over to see inside. It’s exactly what I envisioned. That doesn’t happen very often. 🙂

Empty Tomb Illustrated Verse – John 20:29

Update March 2022: I have an updated version of this illustrated verse in my Etsy shop!

“Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed!” John 20:29

Just before Easter last year, I read this verse and knew I wanted to see it illustrated!  I love it.  It struck me then that this verse is talking about me!  And, I hope, you too, if you believe!

I knew I had to include the empty tomb.

I began it then, but, as Easter is in the spring, there isn’t much time for painting.  I never finished it.  But it was practically done.  All I had to do this week was play with the rock a bit (I wasn’t happy with last year’s work) and finish with artist pen.

I was so excited to share it for Easter this year, but both our computers have been on the fritz!  So… with just under 2 hours left of Easter, here it is!

He is risen!  Just as He said!

Happy Easter!
