I really wanted to participate in the String Thing Challenge over on Tickled to Tangle but the week got away from me. It is what I had planned to share here today. Well, even though I missed participating in the challenge to get included in the week’s submissions, I still completed my tile because I liked the challenge.
Adele said that since it is Thanksgiving we should think of three things for which we are thankful and include them on String #67, which resembles a mobius. I felt that this would be a perfect tile to share for Thanksgiving.
A word of caution though, the tile you are about to view definitely goes along with last week’s Diva Challenge to embrace the “yuck.” In other words, it is not my favorite tile but it does convey the three things for which I am most thankful . . .
God is the foundation of all I do, so he is at the base of my tile. Family is extremely important to me and rises from my relationship with God. Friends, yes there is a tiny little “s” at the end because I ran out of space (some of that yuck I was referring too).
The crescent moon in the center reminds me of the sun (or Son) being a bridge between God and family and friends. The center line forms crosses at the different levels, signifying me denying myself, taking up my cross and following after Him (God), putting others first.
When I completed my tile I had completely forgotten that Adele said to use Crescent Moon and Cornerz but I had chosen Crescent Moon anyway.
I hope you have a wonderful day today, getting ready for Thanksgiving. Tiffany and I will be putting up our Christmas tree and baking, baking, baking . . . I hope I remember to take all the pictures I’m supposed to take. (I’ve already missed one because a strand of lights burnt out under my kitchen cabinets.
Until next time, God bless,
