My 4th of July Craft

I prepared two sets of napkin rings; one I love covering in the Sunday Funnies. The Prayer I share with you my Mother taught me as a child, I only wish I could have shared these with her.

I gave the second set a big blue star and awesome red stripes in honor of our Country's upcoming birthday. "God Bless America".

A Touch of Grace
God is great
God is good
Let us thank him for our food
By His hands we all are fed
Give us Lord our daily bread.

As always thank you for visiting the whimsies studio on the internet I looking forward to seeing you soon. Keep Creating.
