we got to pray just to make it today
Thank you MC Hammer (Oh yes, it is Hammer time).
Never thought I'd take life lessons from an MC Hammer song, but I gotta give it to him.
I really do have to pray every day in order to make it.
And so I wanted a reminder in sort of a fun graphic way.
I started by painting a thick white stripe up in the aquarium and then began painting the word "pray" in sort of a stencil style.
Once I got it started, I realized that the lettering wasn't quite as bold as it needed to be - I wanted to chunk it up a bit. Then I thought that I might like it better blue with white letters, so I basically started over. Good thing it wasn't a labor-intensive project!
I like it - but am not crazy about it. I still like the stenciled letter look better and haven't made up my mind whether blue on white or white on blue is better.
Regardless, I love it in terms of message, positioning and idea.
Now whenever we sit in the room - which is an awful lot - we are all reminded of a revolutionary idea - pray.
All the time.
As a side note, it is also apparently our family's "lost and found" area, as designated by Lucy.
She found a piece of homework and decided she should make a lost and found area.
Since both Cade and Mia have already stated that it is not their paper, their names got stroked off the list. I guess Maddy, Eric and I still are not sure.
