Joy. {framed wall hanging}

So, this word: JOY.  Crave it. Need it. Want it to be an evident fruit of my life.
When I decided to make this frame, JOY came to mind; a reminder, a motto, heralding me to remember that a life surrendered fully to Him will abound in this virtue. Not easy to swallow when life comes crashing in and hearts get clipped. So a reminder is good!

I had this frame in my bathroom, but it kept falling down. First, the glass broke. Then, the frame came unhinged. I was tired of the image anyway, so I pulled the whole thing apart. I added some spray paint, Kraft paper cards, fabric letters & twine; it made for a fresh, new image to reflect upon. 
I drew the letters on a vintage pillow case and cut them out. Then, I centered the fabric letters on the Kraft cards and used orange thread to sew the perimeter of the letters.

Now may the God of hope fill you with all JOY and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
— Romans 15:13

Have a joyful week, Friends!
