Salt: His Presence

It's time for another Salt challenge - and my, how the weeks go by. Last time I said that I wouldn't leave it to the last day this time, but actually it was a good job I did, because our day out on Tuesday gave me inspiration for my contribution - a LO based on some of our sightseeing with the grandchildren.

Gillian chose the theme of His Presence and this is what she said:

His Presence
what does God's presence mean to you?
Does it mean Comfort in time of loss,
Strength when you face a battle,
Reassurance that you Walk the Good Walk...

or is it something you need to accept,
is it something you want to be more open too.

Joshua 1:5
No one will be able to stand up against you all the days of your life.
As I was with Moses, so I will be with you;

I will never leave you nor forsake you.

there are many other verses that speak of God's presence in our lives here are a few.

Matthew 18:20, John 6:37, Romans 8:38-39

as we do each challenge the design team have created some beautiful pieces
and we'd love you to join in with us

In whatever creative form you feel lead to create in, it could be a Scrapbook LO, card, ATC, journal entry, or whatever else you can think of it's really up to you :)

Post your piece onto your blog, with a link to Salt then come and leave us a comment with your link so we can come and share your art.

Please take a look at Salt

Talking with the children about the flag flying when the Queen is at Buckingham Palace got me thinking of the kids' chorus: 'Joy is the flag flown high from the castle of my heart when the King is in residence there' and the fact that Jesus said that He is always with us, even to the end of the age.

I used Center City Designs Imagination project papers for the background: midtown south '5 minute cab ride' and 'walk on Madison Avenue' (where do they get these titles from?!?) Lots of K & Co letters, some dymo tape with my Letratag and a couple of chipboard pieces for the K and crown. The wording says:

"Yesterday we met up with Mandy and the girls and went sightseeing. At Buckingham Palace we explained that if the Queen was there the flag would be flying. Joy is the flag flown high from the castle of my heart when the King is in residence there. Jesus said: I am always with you."
