May You Be....

Hello All!
Had the bestest time at Studio 41Open House Friday night. Sold two pieces (!) and talked and laughed and had fun all evening~~what a blessing.

Here's the latest pendant, inspired by Cindy Forrester. I know it's not the same as the pieces she makes, but her fearless way of soldering organic quirky jewelry inspires me to "move out of my box" a bit. And I had fun with this. The inscription around the jasper rectangle reads "May You Be The Song In My Heart" and that was inspired by a favorite Tim Hughes song, "When the Tears Fall".

Here are the words to that song:

I've had questions, without answers
I've known sorrow, I have known pain
But there's one thing, that I'll cling to
Your are faithful, Jesus You're true

When hope is lost, I'll call You Savior
When pain surrounds, I'll call You healer
When silence falls, You'll be the song within my heart

In the lone hour of my sorrow
Through the darkest night of my soul
You surround me and sustain me
My defender, forevermore

I will praise You, I will praise You
When the tears fall, still I will sing to You
I will praise You Jesus praise You
Through the suffering still I will sing.

Beautiful song. Beautiful words. May your week be blessed~~~~
