The topic this round is Prayer.

You can find Mona’s thoughts on the topic HERE at the Salt Faith Challenge blog.

Pastor Mark just finished a series on prayer in May (they are all here if you’re interested in taking a listen). Basically we went through what good prayer is and isn’t. Pretty eye/heart opening, I’ll tell ya!

I chose to make an ATC again (hope you don’t get tired of these!)…I’m really enjoying using my own doodles on my creations lately. My poor neglected stamps πŸ™‚

You have to look close, but I stamped “pray” in distress ink up the side and stamped the Worn Grid background (Unity Stamp Co) on the whole thing.

On taking photos….
On a completely unrelated topic, I’ve been using the aperture mode on my camera to take my photos, and I’m loving the results. I took this picture at 11:00 last night. No sun, an ceiling lamp overhead and my new favourite setting. Gotta love when you don’t have to wait for a good sun day to get a good photo. OH, and I do use paint.net (FREE download people!!) to adjust (when needed) brightness/contrast, saturation and sharpness. SO fast and easy. I’d recommend this program to anyone who can’t afford Photoshop.
Just my 2 cents πŸ™‚

Thanks for coming to look!
