Salt: Fruit of the Spirit

It was Melita's turn to choose the topic for today's Salt challenge - you can read what she says here.

I've chosen to focus on 'joy'. You might think it's an odd choice, given the present circumstances - John in hospital following weeks of being poorly and this morning I've had to go to the GP and for xray for suspected new vertebrae fracture - but I feel it is an apt choice, because no matter what the circumstances the Holy Spirit enables us to have a joy that isn't based upon how we feel - and I'm so thankful for that.

My LO is based on Nehemiah 8:10, which ends with 'for the joy of the LORD is your strength.'

The paper is My Mind's Eye Bella Bella Paradise, which needed nothing much added to it (which is just as well because I did this earlier this morning before going to see the doctor) - just the addition of the K & Co letters and a Wizard die cut black butterfly.
