Rembrandt, “The Three Trees”, 1643 


“But when he saw the crowds, he was moved with compassion…

—Matthew 9:36


What we can never do

What we can never say

What we can never express:


Pure Love

Melted into a single drop of His blood…


“And Jesus uttered a loud cry, and breathed His last.”

—Mark 15:37


Rembrandt, “The Three Crosses”, 1653


—Howard Hain

    The great thing is when we realize that we always have it! His LOVE! His pure love is in all of us! It’s our treasure, even when we don’t know it’s there! Unfortunately we don’t realize it’s there most of the time. How sad for us!!!!!

    I never imagined a Rembrandt in black and white! These two paintings make me think about the wood of the stable at Bethlehem and the wood of the cross at Calvary. In between thirty-three years of a life lived as LOVE.
