One little word

I have decided to have one little word to see me through 2012. I didn't choose the word because someone else had it and I thought it a good idea. I didn't just pluck a word out of the ethos. No I ask my Father God and immediately He gave me 'HOPE'.
I've thought about this word for a few days now and, although I'm not at all sure where it will lead me I know that the adventure will be good and helpful to me.
I fancy doing it rather like an art journal at the moment, but, will it continue that way?
Here then is my first page, first attempt at something a bit different (for me anyway)

The two 'brackets' are representing cupped hands, I'm holding 'hope' not tightly as that destroys, but gently as if it was a delicate bird.
The verse underneath is from the bible, Psalm 42 verse 11 Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Saviour and my God.

Love the hand illustration and its meaning. Also, a very pretty background.
Thanks for sharing,

Glad you will be continuing your photo a day Mary, I always like seeing the interesting things you find when out and about. Good idea about choosing a word for 2012 - look forward to seeing your arty work.

A place for me to put the pictures of layouts I have done that I am pleased with, to put in the poems I write and to add snippets of things that have caught my eye
