Let it Shine...rusty bed spring candle holders...

Hello friends...I am still "coming down" after and AMAZING weekend retreat with some beautiful ladies from my church!
God is so good!

I had the joy of putting together a little "re-purposing" project for my friends.

I kept it simple...rusty spring and a little "bling".  
I also printed out a verse on clear 2X4 shipping labels to stick to the votive candle...

You are the light of the world. 
A city on a hill cannot be hidden. 
Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. 
Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. 
In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.

Matthew 5:14-16 NLV

"Fitting" don't you think??

Have a blessed week!!
