You Are Beautiful

I haven't mentioned much about the Scripture and prayer challenges lately.  Actually, I've been very good about doing the study part but haven't kept up with the craft part as well.  I think I've done 3 of them so far.  So I thought I'd use this as a chance to practice some of the things I've been reading about Photoshop.  Here's my first try at blending a photo into a textured background.  Still a little rough, but it was fun making it.  This is from the fourth week of My Prayers for You - Scriptures we can pray for our children... or grandchildren, nieces & nephews, friends, etc.  

Scripture:  "Your adornment must not be merely external - braiding the hair, & wearing gold jewelry, or putting on dresses; but let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the imperishable quality of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is precious in the sight of God."  I Peter 3:3-4 NASB

Prayer:  God, help my daughters see that true beauty is not what the world may tell them in magazines & movies, but the inner beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit is precious in the sight of God.  And help me to model this behavior for them.  Amen.

Great... I didn't feel bad about not having done mine when you hadn't done yours either! Now I guess I need to catch up!

Anyway, that looks great - I love that you used that photo with it! : )

Our internal heart is certainly the most important! great idea. Good reminders for our sons too. I would love to buy photo shop and illustrator. Someday!
