Paint Party Friday: Courage, Child!

Oh dear! I like how this turned out
EXCEPT I made a mistake with the husband's left hand!
Will have to do something about that!

Sometimes in a marriage, 
we make mistakes too.
It is a good thing if, like paint and paper,
we can correct our mistakes
by asking forgiveness and to forgive.

That is how a marriage relationship becomes strong.
I like the analogy of multiple threads 
sewing each other together through the years.
We should NOT give up but should keep
talking, communicating, praying together
and praying with others too! 

"Courage, child, your sins are forgiven..."
When we forgive each other, when we accept that
we have wronged each other,
then relationships can be healed.
Sometimes unforgiveness and resentment
cause physical ailments.
Just yesterday my mom's doctor encouraged her
to examine if there are any unresolved issues
in her past because this may have aggravated
her tongue condition.

Let us not wait for any kind of physical illness
but every day, seek to be in good terms with every one!
And those issues we cannot do anything about but pray,
let us let go and leave it to our Father to take care of! 

I have finally finished my Deuteronomy 6 canvas
which I started a million years ago!
that I give you today are to be 
upon your HEARTS..."
One way I try to put God's words 
in my heart is to paint it
because I am a visual person.

For a long time,
I could not figure out how to write the words on the canvas-
using gel transfer, by decoupage, tracing, etc?

Finally decided just to write it with my trusty
Pigma Micron pen!
It was done in a few minutes! 
Now I am excited to do a canvas on Psalm 91!

Every week I choose one wonderful visitor
who leaves a comment
to receive an ATC from me.
I know it takes so much time and effort
to leave a comment
and I appreciate it soooo much!
