The last bit of easter decorating and Good Friday verses

Last year's Spring Heartfelt swap ornaments on the white feather tree. This year I elevated the tree in a Mexican silver dish. I've added the eggs from the last post and a few more goodies I'd love to share with you.
Some gold dangly ornaments that my mother sent me from Germany. I think they have some of the best Easter decorations. I just wish I had more. I think we'll have to work on that!
A close up. I have several different styles.
I found these frosted eggs at Michael's last year.
In the crystal cloche, I've taken the glass bird and a faux planted snow drop and one of the beautiful German crafted eggs that are available at Tuesday Morning.

I found this Bunny at Hobby Lobby this year. It was supposed to become a tassel. You know, add a bit of ribbons and yarns beneath the base, let it dangle from a key in a cabinet. Time got away from me. So now, this exquisite specimen simply adorns a shelf. That chocolate bunny is simply divine!

My people, What have I done to you? How have I offended you? Answer me!
I led you out of Egypt; but you led your Savior to the Cross.
For forty years I led you safely through the desert,
I fed you with manna from heaven,
and brought you to the land of plenty; But you led your Savior to the Cross.
O, My people! What have I done to you that you should testify against me?

The Crucifixion

26As they led him away, they seized Simon from Cyrene, who was on his way in from the country, and put the cross on him and made him carry it behind Jesus. 27A large number of people followed him, including women who mourned and wailed for him. 28Jesus turned and said to them, "Daughters of Jerusalem, do not weep for me; weep for yourselves and for your children. 29For the time will come when you will say, 'Blessed are the barren women, the wombs that never bore and the breasts that never nursed!' 30Then
" 'they will say to the mountains, "Fall on us!"
and to the hills, "Cover us!" '[a] 31For if men do these things when the tree is green, what will happen when it is dry?"

32Two other men, both criminals, were also led out with him to be executed. 33When they came to the place called the Skull, there they crucified him, along with the criminals—one on his right, the other on his left. 34Jesus said, "Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing."[b] And they divided up his clothes by casting lots.

35The people stood watching, and the rulers even sneered at him. They said, "He saved others; let him save himself if he is the Christ of God, the Chosen One."

36The soldiers also came up and mocked him. They offered him wine vinegar 37and said, "If you are the king of the Jews, save yourself."

38There was a written notice above him, which read:|sc THIS IS THE KING OF THE JEWS.

39One of the criminals who hung there hurled insults at him: "Aren't you the Christ? Save yourself and us!"

40But the other criminal rebuked him. "Don't you fear God," he said, "since you are under the same sentence? 41We are punished justly, for we are getting what our deeds deserve. But this man has done nothing wrong."

42Then he said, "Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.[c]"

43Jesus answered him, "I tell you the truth, today you will be with me in paradise."
