Corrie, the crown and the cross

Corrie's creative compilation

Corrie ten Boom was an evangelist who, together with her family, hid resistance fighters and Jews in W.O. 2. Her father was a watchmaker, and in the building where his shop was and where they lived, they picked up people. The watches were beautiful, pure art you can say.


Corrie did something else, though. She embroidered. Once she embroidered a beautiful crown. A true work of art it was. It was embroidered with gold-colored yarn and it was a beautiful crown.

The front was nice, but oh the back. All those wires that swirl ugly through each other. Not to look at it, but turn it over and see the difference.

So it is with us. We are ugly because of our sinful nature, but because of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ, Jesus Christ. we are washed clean and that's why I celebrate Easter.

These 140 words fit the challenge of this month led by @Dewaputra with the keyword work of art - Yes.
