Prayer Reminder

**** Don't forget to enter my big giveaway in my previous post! ****

I know a lot of you are prayin' people, and love to support the missionaries from your church, a child through Compassion Int'l, a ministry, or a loved one serving far away in the military. Here's an idea of how to keep those faces in sight to remember to pray for them:Put a photo in a decorative little medallion. Whether you have a vase filled with fresh or dried flowers, a simple pot you can dress up, or a kitchen canister -- you can make your version of this idea!

First, dig through your paper, ribbons, and memory-keeping goodies. Pull out some supplies that match the decor in the room and play around with them. I loved this little oval cardboard medallion thingy - it came on a sheet with a bunch more from the dollar store! I went with a wide white ribbon that I layered over a scrapbook paper band. For the band I had to glue two 3" strips together. I simply knotted the ribbon in back:
I cut a photo of a missionary couple right out of our church bulletin. If you're doing this for your Compassion child or serviceman/woman you probably have a nice color photo (although personally I love the black and white effect - or black and green in this case!)
Right now this vase is holding some gorgeous fresh flowers my kids picked out for my birthday, but usually it's filled with seasonal dried something or other. So, I can change the photo ribbon look seasonally, too!

Beautiful idea... I LOVE it! Your books just came yesterday, and I was so excited! They are gorgeous! I've already wrapped them for 2 friends' birthdays, but I will save up for one of my own some day! :)

As Missionaries with American Missionary Fellowship my DH and I are so aware of the importance of others praying for our ministry.
We especially were aware of those praying during these past few weeks as I have been recovering from a rattlesnake bite which put me into anaphylaxis shock and 10 days in the hospital-

This is such a wonderful idea and I hope many will use this or in nothing else be reminded of the importance and privilege of praying for one another!
