Look up!

This was an exercise for a class I took,
but it reminded me of the planets,
so I added this verse,
and wanted to share it with you...

This is the series I'm working on now...
It's based on the Proverbs 31 Woman.
Each of these images is designed to portray women from all different cultures modelling the attributes of a godly woman.
6 are finished, 3 more are coming and will cover the rest of the passage.
Check back soon for the latest addition!

She considereth a field, and buyeth it: with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard.
She girdeth her loins with strength, and strengtheneth her arms. (v.16-17)

The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil.
She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life....Her husband is known in the gates, when he sitteth among the elders of the land. (v. 11-12, 23)

She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands....
She perceiveth that her merchandise is good: her candle goeth not out by night.
She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff. (v. 13, 18-19)
She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy.... She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness. (v.20, 26)

She is not afraid of the snow for her household: for all her household are clothed with scarlet.
She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing is silk and purple.... Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come. (v. 21-22, 25)

She maketh fine linen, and selleth it; and delivereth girdles unto the merchant. (v.24)

My furry little friend
has been sick this week,
so I've been nursing him.
He's doing better now,
and enjoying the sunshine.
