Family, Friends and Art....

What a lovely day! We had such a great time today at our Artful Cross Class. With good friends and family (and of course, good food), we ventured into the studio for inspiration and instruction with wonderful conversation and laughter. This first photo shows a few of the crosses that were completed today...The following photo ( my sweet mom's--she is so talented!) is a cross with layering of another small wooden cross and altering embellishments to fit together. All are distinctive of their creator.

That thought gives me great joy as the Creator, God, made us all unique with a purpose only we have been designed to fulfill. As this Easter week is upon us, reflect on the life he has given us through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. With Spring in the air, flowers blooming, trees coming out of winter's sleep, we see new life all around us. God chose this time of the year to display the most magnificent new life..... a new life born out of resurrection. Praise be to our God who is ever-faithful, ever- forgiving and ever-living!!

Blessings to you this week--
