Prayer Flag
Photo printed on muslin
Beads and trim

It's Lent and this is the 5th prayer flag I've created.  I printed this photo of Tom when he was in 1st grade dressed for the elementary school Halloween parade...many years ago!  What I love about doing prayer flags is that it's not about creating a perfect work of art. I don't care about sewing perfect lines or cutting threads to keep things looking "neat".  It's about what or who you are praying about/for.  On the reverse side of this is an American flag which I did not photograph.

"Let us pray for the peace
of the world; for statesmen and rulers,
that they may have wisdom
to know and courage to do
what is right."

Actually, no piece of art is perfect. Prayer isn't perfect either.
