Please may I encourage anyone visiting this blog if you have not read Patter's devotion for this fortnight's challenge to go to her blog HERE and read it.  It really spoke to me as lately I have been struggling in
feeling I was failing the Lord and not living as I ought to be.  My husband and I have yet to find a Christian fellowship to become involved in with our move to another state. Maybe I am lacking Christian fellowship why I have been feeling down lately but even so I should just trust in our Heavenly Father to do just as I have shared on my piece of art  -  "Turn me around - Pick me up".  These are the words from our given song that really spoke to me and the scripture is one that Patter shared and I felt it one I needed to take claim of - I need to stop living according to my sinful nature. I need to get my eyes back to being fixed on Jesus.

I created a slightly hybrid piece of art with having fun to make my own real washi tape by printing a digital paper over some masking tape.

For the sixth year I am taking part in a challenge hosted by Patter Cross. This year Patter is teaching us through scriptures and lyrics from Christian songs ( sometimes it may be a hymn).
Please visit Patter's blog HERE to read what she has to share to start our year off.

The song the lyrics for this fortnight came from is You are the Lord by Jeremy Camp. If you would like to hear the song and see the words please visit Patter's blog and your will find a link to the song.

This year I hope to combine some digital art with some papercraft for my small pieces of art. These pages each fortnight will be displayed in a CD case.  When I went to start working on my art this time, I had been making YoYo flowers from fabric for some cushion covers I was making and thought - why not add a small YoYo flower to my scripture art. I had chosen to work with red, purple and grey so off to my stash of fabrics and I found the right piece to make a flower.

As I read the words to this song the two lines I have shared on my artwork stood out to me - how wonderful the life that our Lord does give us - from the moment we accept Jesus as our Lord and Saviour our eternal life begins. I was once shared this fact in a youth group many years ago. It is not when we die that our eternal life starts - it is when we become a true believer.
The blessings I am receiving from the change my husband and I made towards the end of last year just shows how the Father does provide for us. We moved from a large city to a small country town to be closer to my daughter and her precious family ( I have 3 adorable little granddaughters ).

Here is my hybrid piece of artwork:
