SALT and Light
The current SALT challenge theme is - Inspiring Women Of Faith I've been longing to participate in these challenges for a while.
I've made a hanging called 'Friends'. As I was making this piece, I couldn't help but reflect on the incredible gift of friendship. It is indeed a gracious gift from God. Faithful friends are an awesome blessing in our lives and I am very thankful to have some wonderful friends that have supported me through tough times and celebrated with me in good. I lost my mother many years ago now, just as we were becoming very good friends, and so friendships have been extra special to me.
Thank you my dear friends for... caring enough to listen to me, speaking words of wisdom, taking time to keep in touch, your prayers, challenging me, speaking truth in love, making me laugh out loud, giving me hope and joy and peace, sharing from your heart and allowing me to do the same, helping me to realise that I'm never alone, telling me to be brave, believing in me...
Thank you, Father for doing all of the above and so much more.

Oh, yes 'light'. I had quite a bit of trouble getting a decent photo of 'Friends' because my light fuse keeps blowing at home and my lighting consists of two lamps and candles - I wish I had an electrician for a friend!
