Salt: sheep of His flock

Gina has chosen the theme for our Salt challenge today: 'sheep of His flock' - you can read what she wrote here.

It's so good to share crafting and faith with so many talented ladies on Salt. If you haven't already done so, do pop over there and have a scroll through the wonderful artwork produced - perhaps you will be inspired to create something for the challenge and share it with us - we'd love that.

Psalm 23, 'The Lord is my Shepherd' is one of the best known passages from the Bible - quoted or sang at so many occasions, including weddings and funerals - it so encompasses all aspects of life.

When pondering upon this theme, I was drawn to John 10, where Jesus talks about Himself as the shepherd of the sheep, so this is the basis of my LO. I am assured and comforted that Jesus is my shepherd - the good shepherd - He knows me and I know Him.

Having just celebrated Easter, it is fitting that the verses from John 10 go on to say: 'and I lay down my life for the sheep' - that's what was particularly remembered on Good Friday, but something for which I am thankful every day as I reflect upon the sacrifice made by Jesus for me.

The fancy edge of my LO has been cut from K & Co Sea Glass Shell Pattern paper, which is embossed, overlaid on to Karen-Marie Photo Collection Grass 1. The words were printed on to some of the remainder of the K & Co paper, with the addition of sheep and heart by Express Yourself'. A simple LO that conveys profound truth.


  1. This is one of my favourite pieces Hazel and you have done a perfect LO for it. Anything more fancy would have detracted from the beautiful words.
