Thankful Remembrances

"I thank my God every time I remember you....He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus." Philippians 1:3 and 6. Whenever someone comes to mind, pray for them. The Holy Spirit has placed that remembrance in your head. God has blessed us with the ability for continual prayer. We don't have to stop what we are doing or go to a special place in order to pray. We can pray anywhere and at any time. My pastor is facing surgery and verse 6 gives me hope that he will be able to complete the work he was sent to do.
It gives me hope for his future here on earth. Lord, please, work a mighty work in my friend's life. Amen.

I made this work of altered art in a demonstration done last Saturday to gain interest for a mixed media class I'm planning to teach in September. It measures 5" x 7 1/2" with the lace extending another 1 1/2" below and the ribbon hanger another 3" above. I used a copied image of a photograph, wallpaper, scrapbook paper, book binding, yarn, sticker, ribbon rose, lace, ribbon, old buttons, a flower twig and jute twine. An old book cover was used as the base.
