Tracey has done two beautiful layouts to go with our challenges this month.

The first is to use the word "Create" & the next about what Christ's Death means to her. Her Church had an art display this year of beautiful works of art deataling the meaning of Christ's death, and Tracey's LO was on display.


When I prayed about doing this layout, this was the picture I was given, along with the Steven Curtis Chapman song “Speechless” - and in particular the emphasis on the word ‘astounded’. Steven Curtis’ songs continually inspire me because he always seems to write lyrics that completely describe how I feel - and his music is truly God-given and inspirational. It’s hard to get my head around Jesus’ sacrifice at any time, it’s almost too big to even contemplate - and the use of the word ‘astounded’ in the lyrics seems to so well describe my feelings about Jesus’ sacrifice for me. This layout is my attempt to depict the washing of all of us as white as snow with the blood that flowed down as Jesus was crucified. Who He is and what He has done for me and for all of us - is truly astounding.
