Lenten Mobile Part 3

So the third week of Lent added a few changes ~ (you couldn't really tell in the photo of week two what changed, so I've skipped ahead :) I tucked up the longer fabrics, which made them 'swoop' a bit. I added a bunch more ribbon, and some interesting paper stuff called 'tree wrap' that I had found last year at Goodwill. It's like kraft crepe paper and added an interesting texture to the mix. Brown isn't normally a Lenten liturgical color, but I like that it reminds me of my 'dirtiness', and how it's all wrapped up in my journey with Jesus. And He loves me anyhoo :)  I took this photo last night before service started- it sure looks nice at night with the lights shining on it :) imho.....That's all for this week!

Ash Wednesday

"Lent" the journey begin :) Today we commemorate Ash Wednesday- with soup! and fellowship, and journey to the Cross. Pastor is leading us in a study of prayer at our Wednesday evening services, and Sundays. So looking forward to learning more. Even at my *advanced* age, I'm learning new things from Pastor Brian. Truly a Good Shepherd with a heart for Jesus. We are so blessed.
So here's the first in this year's offering for the Sanctuary mobile. I plan to add to it every week, so I started 'small' and simpler. I found some purple sheer curtains at the Goodwill and those are the 4 main fabrics, with some purple ribbons for texture. Will try to take a better photo next week :) 
On another note- some fun things to look at on pertaining to Ash Wednesday and Lent :)  I'm going to "get my ash in church" tonight :)
