Creativity is worship…

“Creativity is worship insofar as it is, at its essence, a response. I hear the Word, and I respond with music, with silence, in adoration, in appreciation by picking up the basin and the towel.”

From my morning readings in “Scribbling in the Sand”, by Michael Card.

I think it must not just be a response, but also a response shared with others.  This is a high calling that I believe we are all suited for, although we each have different things to bring to it.

Hebrews 13:5

Just finished this prayer piece which I began in June. It’s 11″x14″, stitched using metallic threads and black napped thread which looks like velvet.

I hope this closeup shows the silver metallic threads embellishing the background canvas, and the metallic threads I used to stitch the design.
