Hold On to Hope!

I'm one day late for the party,
but I didn't want to miss the fun!

 Here is the canvas I'm working on.
I have yet to attach the flowers
and put stems.
I also have to put wall putty
on her dress and paint it.
I think I'm going to name this
"Holding on to Hope". 
In my journal is a drawing of Aquila and Priscila,
two names mentioned in the Bible six times.
Paul in the Book of Romans said they
were his co-workers, as they also built tents.
They would hold prayer meetings
in their house as there were no churches yet.
They are mentioned again
in Acts 18, that they took time to 
disciple the learned and eloquent man, Apollos,
when they heard him speak in the synagogue.

Obviously, this couple did what they could
with what they had, to spread the Word
and build the Kingdom of God on earth! 
Even though sometimes they were persecuted 
and had to relocate because of persecution,
they continued to hold on to hope!

Linking with
sneak peek

Have a great day!
