This week our church is hosting a week of 24/7 Prayer. It began at 6 PM last night and will continue through Sat. the 24th.
I was so moved by the various prayer stations that various gifted artist put together to draw us into a deeper understanding of the Lord and our time spent with Him in prayer.
I wanted you to see what my artist friend Angie made from a gourd. Isn't it sooo beautiful!! Be sure to click to enlarge so you can read what she wrote.
Angie writes "The gourd represents a vessel to be filled.. The hands signify not only a releasing to Him but a recieving from Him. The red color inside this piece represents fire symbolic for burnt offerings. The Hebrew writing are various names of God." (in case the top part was too hard to read)
Don't you just love that art can be expressed in all kinds of ways... crafting, quilting, sewing, writing, painting, scrapbooking, photography, cooking, decorating, collecting and on & on. Our gifts and talents are unique to who we are and they give us that inner peace, joy and contentment when we are doing what we were created to do. What is your creative passion?
