His banner over me is love
I just made this banner/wall hanging the other day to hang on the high wall over the stairs. I get to look at it every time I come down the stairs. It wasn't nearly as hard to make as I thought it would be. I used pretty floral and dark green squares for the border, deep rose/red floral for the cross border, and gold for the cross. To me, all the fabrics symbolize something spiritual (that's just how I like to do things, I guess...)
gold - purity, glory, beauty
red - the blood of Jesus that forgives our sins
green and floral - new life in Christ
I am pretty happy with how it turned out. I may straighten up the bottom edge if I have the time. It is a little slanted. Other than that, I am pleased. It is a great use of the empty wall space. And it reminds me of the sacrifice Jesus made for me every time I use my stairs!
I've got a little prayer request. I am going to be part of band this weekend that is leading worship for the ladies at my church. They are hosting a women's retreat. We will be playing Saturday morning around 9:30a. I am playing guitar and singing. We are even doing two of the songs I've written! I am excited! And nervous... It's been awhile since I've done this. But I know God is with me and leading me. Just pray that He will touch the ladies and bring His presence in a powerful way. Thank you so much!
