In December I hung a Nativity picture from a string over my desk. I can’t remember what I put up in January. A heart in February. A shamrock in March.
I thought and thought about what would go up in early April. I wanted to testify, but I didn’t want to be “in your face”. I wondered what I “could get away with”. I looked at lambs and lilies. I didn’t want to do bunnies and chicks. Not that I have anything against bunnies and chicks, but I wanted more. I found pictures of lilies on open Bibles. Good! First I put up a double sided hanging. Bible and lilies on one side; Bible, lily and crown of thorns on the other. Good, but still not right. Finally I put up a picture of the Garden scene( from The Life of Christ event I attended in Vancouver ) opposite the crown, lily and Bible. There!
I wondered when I put it up a week ago on Thursday before taking Friday off for Conference preparation whether it would still be there when I returned to work Monday. Yes! No one has complained that I know. Supervisor to the 2nd power came to look more closely. (She wanted to see what was on the stool next to the open tomb.) Supervisor one mentioned that she has a “Mormon Bible” she received when doing the tourist bit in Temple Square, Salt Lake City. Today our janitor told me that a gal in another office had something similar, but was told to take it down. If they had done so, I would have moved my pictures to within my cube instead of over it. (directly over my head actually). I sometimes lean back and look up at them and think about my Lord Jesus and whether I am actually following Him as I should, or think about the wonderful Life of Christ event.
Or what I will put up next week. Simply spring pictures, I think.
