Celebrate the true meaning of the season with our He is Risen Embroidery Hoop Kit. The disciples had deserted Jesus, but Mary Magdalene, Mary of Clopas and Mary Salome lingered at the cross to the very end. They observed a man wrapping up Jesus’ body. They then followed this man at a distance to see where Jesus was buried. It was sundown, so they returned home to prepare spices for a proper burial. These women rose before daylight and traveled alone to the tomb. When they arrived, they found the stone rolled away. They entered the tomb but found it empty (Luke 24:3). Suddenly an angel appeared. The angel said, “He is not here; for He is risen. . . . Come, see the place where the Lord lay” (v. 6). They were then instructed to tell the disciples that Jesus had risen from the dead.
The women departed quickly to carry out the angel’s instructions. Though they were “afraid,” they “told all these things to the eleven and to all the rest” (Luke 24:5, 9). The disciples were skeptical at first, but ran to the tomb and saw proof of the women’s statement. The disciples left, but Mary Magdalene returned and was weeping by the tomb when Jesus appeared to her (John 20:11-18). This was His first appearance to anyone after His death and resurrection. Soon after Jesus appeared to Mary Magdalene, He appeared to the other women on the road. They took hold of His feet and worshiped Him. Then He instructed them to have the disciples leave for Galilee where they would see Him.
Our He is Risen Embroidery Kit was designed with the story of Jesus’ resurrection at its’ heart. The purple wreath represents the crown of thorns placed upon his head at his crucifixion, with purple representing royalty as Jesus was the King of all Kings. While stitching this hoop for Easter we encourage the stitcher to meditate and pray on the Easter story and the wisdom it holds for Christians everywhere. Stay steadfast to your faith, no matter what adversities come across your path. A group of women supported Jesus’ ministry for many months. They were faithful with their resources, steadfast at the cross, and prepared to fulfill their final act of service at the tomb. These women did not allow adversity to keep them from ministering to their Savior. By stitching our He is Risen Embroidery Kit and hanging it in your home at Easter, you inviting God’s glory into your home.
