Good Friday.....

Although John Hart died before Easter in 2007, his legacy lives on.........


I'd like to thank John Hart, the creator of the cartoon strip B.C.,  for not being afraid to express his faith for all to see in his work.......

  Our local paper doesn't carry B.C. anymore.  That's a shame.


“Hart believes the Lord put him into the cartooning world for a reason. Every prudent chance he gets, he takes advantage of it. On Hallowe’en, Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter—and many days between—Hart’s characters offer messages reflecting the cartoonist’s own firm belief in the gospel message. ‘I find myself trying to put the gospel into practically every strip I create without being obvious about it,’ he says.”




We all think we can define God and what He should and shouldn't be doing.  HE says to us in Luke 19:20

When the multitude began rejoicing and praising God, the pharisees told him to rebuke them.....

He answered, "I tell you, if these were silent, the very stones would cry out."

It's very clear on this Good Friday that all nature sings out.......I have always been fascinated with the long leaf pines.  When they start to put out their new growth, it looks like little crosses.....I don't think that is a coincidence.....






Have a Good Friday.

What a great BC cartoon strip! I like seeing the pine tree crosses each spring too.

I guess we don't have many pine trees around here because I've never seen the little crosses on them. That is awesome!

I love the BC cartoon strips ... especially how he was able to weave in the gospel.

Living in such a secular world, it is so nice to see some acknowledgment of Good Friday. That is a wonderful cartoon.

I don't think I have ever noticed the cross on the new needles. I need to find a lone pine tree.

Happy Easter.

Well you are getting ready for Easter aren't you? No worries my post for tomorrow is along the same lines. About Easter that is.

I'm glad you liked my story today. I think I forgot a part but it's been so long since I've heard it... I'm sure my mom will correct me once she reads it. haha.

I love that cartoon, and another one I saw on FB today especially for Easter. He was great. Did you hear Thomas Kincaid died yesterday? Only 54!

Have a blessed Easter! Sorry I haven't been around for so long.

Oh yes the pine trees with the crosses! Isn't God subtle and oh, so creative? I loved the BC cartoonn also, did not realize the creator was a strong Christian. Great information in this post, it is always nice to learn something new ;0)

Your comment today had me giggling. I am getting used to the meds. Every time I get used to it they up the dose though so it's a constant bizarre feeling. Thanks for making me smile today. :)
