Unfortunately, I'm one of those who should have probably been taken off the list for this reveal, but to be fair I didn't realize that until late last night.
My chosen song is this one by Josh Garrels:
My favorite part is this:
Though they may surround me like lions
and crush me on all sides.
I may fall, but I will rise.
Not by my might or my power, or by the strength of souls,
only through your love, my Lord
All that's lost will be restored.
This song has been speaking to me a lot lately, especially in the face of odds that seem overwhelming and unsurmountable.
My idea was to carefully saw a lion's face out of a sheet of 26 gauge brass and I did.
Then my second plan was to solder it to a sheet of copper, but when I went to heat the brass, I heated it too hard and melted the lion's ear off.
Of course, none of this happened until yesterday, so I didn't know until last night that it wasn't going to work. So, I'm here sharing my song and my inspiration, but not my creation.
Maybe one day I'll finish it and you'll get to see it.
I hope you'll enjoy seeing everyone else's creations.
Please hop around and visit (and sing if you feel inclined!)
Enjoy the extra day that you've been given this year!
I think we've all earned it!
