Don't Hold On To Me Yet by Amy Marshall and Madeleine Marshall (age 4)
Theme-Hope: Mary Magdalene was the first of Jesus’ followers he chose to appear to after he rose from the dead. She didn’t recognize him at first, until he spoke her name. Then, she must have run to him and clung to him, because he said, “Do not hold on to me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father” (John 20:17, italics added). Then he commissioned her to go and proclaim the good news to the other disciples. Right now, Jesus is with God the Father. But when he comes back, I can’t wait to hold on to him. In the mean time, I’ll share the good news.

Iconostasis of Rival Kings by Amy Marshall
When Pilate brought Jesus in front of the Jews and asked them, "Shall I crucify your king?", their religious leaders gave the chilling reply, "We have no king but Caesar" (John 19:15). While we might not explicitly declare our utmost loyalty to someone or something other than King Jesus (though some of us do), what rival kings in our lives are revealed by the way we talk and live? And what will be the end results of allegiance to rulers other than the Son of God?

Layers of Lament by Kerri Donaldson
Lament, bewail, cry, grieve, hurt, mourn, sob, sorrow, wail, weep … these are all emotions that plague our human condition — emotions that are distorted, broken and layered. Jesus is familiar with our pain and he reaches out to comfort us, just as he did with the women of Jerusalem on his way to the cross. Incredibly, he was half-dead, walking to a horrible, painful death, and he stops to comfort others. Truly, Jesus is the Man of Sorrows who understands our grief!
