Deck of Me, weeks 37 & 38

The prompt for week 37 was draw something. Once again, I turned to Mary Fleeson's work for inspiration. The Salt challenge for this week is from the hymn book so this will be appropriate for that too.

'Light of the world you came down in the darkness, opened my eyes, let me see'. I have been singing this song all the while I have been drawing, grateful for the reminder. 'Here I am to say that you're my God.'

The prompt for week 38 was I wonder..

I wonder at the tenaciousness of life. Even in extreme conditions there is evidence of living matter. Yesterday I noticed plants clinging to a wall that had benefitted from a dripping drainpipe. Survival is such a basic instinct.

When my daughter saw this card, she commented that it was just like the pub wall we pass regularly. It was easily recognisable!

Don't you just love that song that Delirious sings 'Open my eyes, let me see.... Here I am to worship, here I am to bow down, here I am to say that You're my King...
Just singing in my head now - lovely expression of your faith here Ros!
