I Am A Friend of God



My dear friend Kate was on my mind today. She is an amazing Christ-follower and has been to very kind to me. Here's a pendant I designed for her and am stringing into a finished piece. She loves the song "Friend of God" that is wonderfully sung by Phillips, Craig & Dean. Here's some of the words:

Who am I that You are mindful of me?
That You hear me when I call
Is it true that You are thinking of me?
How You love me
It's amazing

I am a friend of God
I am a friend of God
I am a friend of God
He calls me friend.

This pendant features a bead of "Aqua Terra". I'd never heard of it, but my local bead shop/addiction center had strands of this luscious wonderful stuff and I was forced to buy it. Against my will, you understand. I cut out sheet copper, stamped and punched it. I threaded the bead on with copper wire and riveted it all together. The time flies when I work on jewelry...I'm always surprised when I look up and hours have passed so quickly!

May your Friday be blessed. May He protect and encourage you!
