Thankful Thursday #15
I am thankful for so many things everyday.
Need a spiritual gift for a birthday or Christmas?
I don't think I really realize just how fortunate I am to live in a country where I can express my religious beliefs. Although it can be hard here at times and sometimes it seems that freedom is narrowing, I know I can freely be a Christian.
The whole being of this blog and the title goes back to my memories of childhood, church, and family.
I love new Christian music. I have my 3rd Casting Crowns CD in my car. I lost the first two, moving them around from car to car and didn't hesitate replacing it a third time.
As much as I love new music, there is just something about the old, traditional church songs.
I had an idea to create my own charms. What I originally had on my mind is not what I ended up with, but I love it even more! I just prayed about it and went with it. That's what I am supposed to do all the time, but Worry and Control take over too many times.
I worked with the same company who did the Friendship charms I posted about. These charms are my artwork. I wanted something whimsical and fun, but a positive message.
I have so many wonderful memories of church and the traditional hymns are just so comforting to the soul. I hope and pray I am successful with these, but if they just give someone a great feeling or spark a sweet memory I will be happy!
I am making things for my Etsy store and getting ready for a festival this Saturday, but I couldn't wait to post my charms! Please leave a comment and let me know what you think. I have more in the works and would love the feedback!
I love the blacked out look, but the silver shows the details in the artwork.
