Peace

"Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid." John 14:27 Things were very unpeaceful when John wrote these words of Christ. All around us we see and hear of everything but peace. I feel desperate at times wondering if things could get worse--then I remember-- Christ gives the only true peace we need. Even when things are beyond despair, Christ's promised peace soothes my ravaged soul.
I made this altered art today in a demonstration done at a local craft and decorating store. I'll be teaching a mixed media class there in Sepember. I had about ten people sign up and a few more interested in my 3 hours there. The art has a very old book cover as the base, collaged newspaper words cover with tracing paper, a little girl image, ephemera and a ribbon and it measures about 4 1/2" x 7 ." I used buttons and a charm on bent wire as the hanger.
