The theme for this week is
It is mentioned so many times in the Bible, and has many facets of meaning and symbolism.
I am the LIGHT of the World... The people walking in darkness have
seen a great LIGHT ...The LIGHT shines in the darkness, but the
darkness has not understood it...In the same way, let your LIGHT shine
before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father
Please have a look at the other wondeful creations on the SALT BLOG, and please join in!
As Jesus is MY LIGHT and SALVATION, I thought the piece below would be appropriate...
I love candles, and have some empty glass containers from used ones, so I shaved down a round candle to fit into this oval shaped one. I have used a heavy weight translucent paper around the glass and for the punchies. I printed out "Jesus" on to white paper and placed it behind the translucent paper, then using my Making Memories punch/setter tool, punched the holes out along the letters adjusting the size of the holes where appropriate. Then stuck the punchies on and edged with scalloped scissors.
The birthday boy Pete dressed as a duck, including huge webbed feet, and his brother came as traffic lights. His friends from London came as....... Pete! was very funny, the original Pete i the one in red at the front.
Another momentus occassion... Lukes first tooth has come out! The offending culprit was a piece of french bread! We had no idea it was wobbly until it came out. There a couple of teeth already out behind the front teeth, so may need a trip to the dentist at somepoint.
And this pic of Ethan was too cute not to share!
From the hymnbook
take your inspiration from a hymn or song that means a lot for your faith
Anyway, this is the card... I hope it means something for you, as it does for me, and if you've never stopped to read it through properly, here are the words...
Amazing grace, how sweet the sound
That sav’d a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found,
Was blind, but now I see.
’Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
And grace my fears reliev’d;
How precious did that grace appear,
The hour I first believ’d!
Thro’ many dangers, toils and snares,
I have already come;
’Tis grace has brought me safe thus far,
And grace will lead me home.
The Lord has promis’d good to me,
His word my hope secures;
He will my shield and portion be,
As long as life endures.
Yes, when this flesh and heart shall fail,When we’ve been there ten thousand years,
And mortal life shall cease;
I shall possess, within the veil,
A life of joy and peace.
Bright shining as the sun,
We've no less days to sing God’s praise
Than when we’ve first begun.
