I joined the 5th Great Big Stitched Postcard Swap hosted by Beth Nichols of Do What You Love.
The theme is Discover.
What a powerful word. All my life I have been discovering and re-discovering about who I am. To be myself. To be strong. To live with a purpose. To live for Him.
I am a child of God. That alone is enough to give breath and depth into my being.
As I create this painting I am also discovering what I can do. And I am amazed that I can do simple stitches.
As I create this painting I am re-discovering my wonderful hands that God has given me to create and to help other people.
As I create this painting I am re-discovering the wonderful world of failure. Because it is truly by failing that we learn not to give up on the dream that God has called us forth. To fail means that we have not failed to keep creating something. To fail means we walk hand in hand with fear and dance to the rhythm.
This is for you Birgitta Mörkeberg of Sweden. It’s a pleasure to have known you! I hope this piece inspires you as much as it has inspired me.
This piece is also for my country who remains standing strong despite the adversity that has struck us. This piece symbolizes teamwork and will power. I hope we have learned something.
PS* Please help pray for Philippines as we have experienced calamity cause by strong rain. Thank you very much.
