Faith

Thought I would share a project I volunteered to create for elder appreciation at our church. My family is completely Blessed by our church, Grace Bible church, and it's elders. So many times when we faced challenges and struggles the elders and pastor of our church have instantly been by our sides offering prayer and assistance. An incredibly talented woman from our church came up with the idea to have volunteer artist of the church create a shadow box that will then be presented to one of the elders of our church in honor of our appreciation and gratitude for all they do. Of course, I instantly jumped on board and this is what I created
I used scripture as the backdrop of the box and then highlighted Galatians 2:20 I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
I wanted the focus of the piece to be on the cross as the cross is what it's all about- I added some dimension by adhering a decorative cross to the outside of the box and finished it off by adding some vinyl and a little bit of bling (of course ;)
