The Altarpiece

What if we begin writing down what we are grateful for?  Each day, take some time, reflect and make a few notes.  Not only will we be preparing for the altarpiece, we might just find ourselves in a whole new state of mind. 

I really like Rebecca’s style of work where she has writing under glass.  What if we each write our list of gratitude on the side edges of the boxes and cover them in glass?  I see the edges painted and the words in gold ink.

I have some other ideas and will sketch them out and bring them to our workday on Sunday.
