Living Life as Prayer --Canvas

Getting ready 
 to lead a Women's retreat next weekend.
  Nothing makes me feel more unprepared,
 then to lead others,
 when I often feel like I move blindly.
 So it is only then that can I step out.  
You, Dear Lord, will give the gifts,
 fashion the words together 
 that may bless your people.
 Praying for those attending-
 that your Word may work alive in the hearts
 of those who will be coming to be together
 in community.

A canvas with the retreat theme-
Doors into Prayer----
 and my heart theme-
  Living Life as Prayer.

Tissue paper from a new pair of my husband's shoes.
  great background color
old Ideals magazines for layers,
 stencil paints, stamping on more tissue paper
 vintage buttons,
crochet flowers (Michael's)
and the beautiful crochet hanging piece
 from my friend Jan-

And cut put pieces from
 Pottery Barn catalogs with the Sizzix die
 printed up Living Life as Prayer
 on the computer
Added some pulled burlap strings to dangle on the sides
 and Mod Podge covers all with love

  1. Preparing to lead others in the way of the Lord is truly Holy Ground! I read your post as I am also in preparation. Joining you in prayer for the Lord to fashion the words together that may bless your people.
