United, we stand as Christian paper crafters and blog owners to make a presence on the internet for all to see. We're celebrating the theme of friends and we're happy to share our projects with you based on the verse:

"Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work: If one falls down,
his friend can help him up. " Eccl 4:9-10a

Debby's Response to Ecclesiastes 4:9-12:

I could not wait to get into the Word and study our topic text. I prayed and asked God to bring to my heart the core of the message. Personally, it is a message that I've heard a lot lately. 

My friends throughout my life and my walk with God have been vital to my literal survival in life. When I’ve fallen and there would be a friend ready to pray, to sit with me, to drag me out of the house, to not judge or condemn, sometimes just to listen to me complain or cry. I am thankful for all those friends. May I bee the friend they have been to me. 

My project represents just a few of the people, friends that have walked with me throughout my life. My prayer is that this art piece was done for the Glory of God and is indeed for His Glorification. Thanks!

Note:  The metal box with the bottle caps is connected to the canvas by a magnet.  If I want to change the look of the canvas I can slip it off and create something new!
