Is it storming in your neck of the woods? We have had some rain and thunder storms here. I love this weather! My sister and I were driving in the rain and she said, "It has always rained on Good Friday. I can't remember a time it hasn't."
Isn't that awesome that God still brings the rain on Good Friday? I love it!
Here are some pictures of some Marie Altered art pieces I just finished. The first one is an ATC Accordian Book inspired by Marie and Cake! This was my first ever accordian book. I am mailing it to Tristan from Marie Antoinette Mail Art Group. Tristan is an amazing artist! Click his name and go to his blog to see his work.
This is the cover
This is one side of the book
And the other side...
Here is my book for the Altered Book Swap. The books are going around and each artist will do two pages in everyone's book. When my book returns it will include art from all over the world! I am so excited!!! This is the front of my book
It's good Friday. I just want to take some time to remember the cost that Jesus paid for our salvation. His love for us was enough. I often ask myself if He could say the same about me. Is my love enough? This thought is very humbling. How often I am reminded that no matter how little I show Him or tell Him I love him, it is Still enough for Him!
The awesome thing is...Jesus Loves Me! He just does! He gave (it was not taken) he willingly gave His life, so that I may live!
" Jesus knew that his mission was now finished, and to fulfill Scripture he said, “I am thirsty.” A jar of sour wine was sitting there, so they soaked a sponge in it, put it on a hyssop branch, and held it up to his lips. When Jesus had tasted it, he said, “It is finished!” Then he bowed his head and released his spirit John 19:28-30 (NLT)
