Faith Can Move Mountains
Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to the mountain 'Move from here to there,' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you. - Matthew 17:20
Divorce is a horrible ugly thing. I hate it. I wanted my husband to change and I wanted to forgive. Friends reached out and offered great advice (thank you!). All had the same advice - trust in the Lord, give it all to the Lord, and just concentrate on you and the kids. So that's what I'm doing. Throughout this storm, God never left my side. Faith is what kept me grounded. I'm going to keep taking leaps of faith, and continue to live in God's words.
This home decor was not as hard as I thought! I used scrap wood, and paint I had around the house. I started by finally opening the Ryobi scroll saw I ordered from Home Depot a few weeks ago. I looked on YouTube to see how to put it together and how to use it. I couldn't find anything! Luckily, after reading the directions, it was mostly put together and easy to use! I love it!
To get the word "faith" on the wood, I used my Silhouette Cameo and printed it on paper. I then put the paper on the wood and traced the letters. It made indention's on the wood. I later found out, I could have taped the piece of paper to the wood and used the scroll saw. I'll have to try that next time.
The scroll saw was easy and fun to use! Although I do not know how to sew, the scroll saw reminded me of a sewing machine, but cutting wood. It's more because of the look of the machines. :)
I used left over wood stain I had from another project for the border, used the metallic spray paint I used from my last blog post for the word 'faith,' and pink spray paint I got at Target for the background.
I wish the word faith was more like the top of the metallic spray can cap, but it works. I thought about adding glitter to the wood cut, but decided not to. Maybe next time :)!
