Thanks to God for a new baby brother. Our prayers and our joy for the family.

Inspired by a book "The little book of prayer experiments".  The suggestion was to take a bible verse and spend time praying it through and meditating on it whilst illustrating it in some way.The words at the bottom are the sorts of things people might be bowed down by and the words at the top are what God lifts us up to, the things he desires for us to experience. The bit in the middle is a path or a wall
