This week was spent making Paper Crowns
There is just something JOYFUL about glitter and feathers
~ and jewels ~
My daughter came over one afternoon and joined in the
When I went to mail these 5 crowns
The woman behind the counter reached over to flick something
out of my hair ... a bit of glue and glitter was embellishing me
The women who will be receiving these crowns
are stepping out in faith into new lives
I became aware of this weeks "Oscar" inspired event
when a friend emailed me a link about it, which you can find HERE, it is called
"Furs and Feathers"
(It had me at the title : )
The Women of Vision Orange County
have organized this event for those at Isaiah House,
a shelter helping women in need, and were asking for
"silly wigs, boas, gaudy rhinestone jewelry, and outrageous hats"
(of which I do own many of each ... don't even ask ...)
for the women to wear as they received their awards
But there was an idea that formed in my heart to
"Make them crowns so they will know that God loves them"
"Beloved of the Lord"
Isn't is fun to realize that God can use glitter and more glitter
to sparkle His love on us?
Here are the backs of the crowns, adjustable sizes with ribbon ties
The verse inside reads,
He crowns you with love and compassion
and satisfies your desires with good things
so that your youth is renewed like the eagles.
This verse has been on my heart and mind for the love it shows,
the Love that God has for each of us.
Like me, are you surprised at times to realize that God loves us so much
that He wants to satisfy our desires?
With Good Things!
And GLITTER is always a good thing : )
Who can you sprinkle with glitter this week?
