As I spent time with the Lord the other day, I realized that my goal in life has really remained constant, even though I may not always have acknowledged it or let it guide all I do. My goal has been & remains that I should be an instrument of peace in a shattered world. The only way I can do that is to keep my eyes on Jesus, for He is my peace. I can only share what He has given me. So my prayer is Shalom. More than just peace, but true wholeness. That is what my savior offers. Shalom.

In this entry, I painted the background & the cross with tempera paints. I usually think of them as "kid's paints". I forgot how fun they were to play with & I was thrilled with the color & consistency of them even though they'd been on the shelf for years. The shalom comes from some die cut lettering I've had forever also. Easy. But very please with how it came out.
