Daddy's Legacy

The project in this post is not new.

Since I have made new followers and friends, 
I thought I'd share one that I treasure. 

I call it, "Daddy's Legacy."

Daddy kept many of his sermons in hopes
that one of his grandchildren would be 
a preacher-boy.
(Didn't happen!)
Although, he may have a great-grand who will!

There were notebooks and notebooks
and pages after pages of 
sermons that absolutely no one 
who decipher.  

So the idea came to me to find a way to preserve them.
I took a canvas and brushed on mod podge
and sermon notes.
I chose sermons from each decade of his service,
from 1950-1997.

I found the cross on clearance at Hobby Lobby.

I chose this one because it was broken.
It represents what the cross symbolizes, 
the broken body of Jesus.

As Jesus was broken and spilled out, 
so was my daddy's life.
He lived and loved and exemplified a life of service. 
That is truly a legacy.

Thank you Daddy for Leaving a Legacy, 
An Inheritance More than Money
