Women's Retreat - Calgary



So I finally broke down and have decided to be apart of my Church (Cornerstone Foursquare Church) Women's Retreat this September 25-27th, 2009. Friends approached me asking me if I wanted to design the advertising sign. I wasn't sure at first because I didn't know enough about the retreat... but after discussing it with one of the ladies I did my own prayers and God gave me this vision for the sign.
I saw God holding a net that catches all our tears, as the tears are absorbed through the net they turn into precious jewels. The containers on each side of the sign are empty, representing women in the Church and how empty they feel. The main container though is the way it actually is... our tears are precious to God. God transforms them (and us) into precious jewels. We are His beloved. We often forget that because there is so much pain and suffering in the world.
This retreat is going to be focusing on healing that pain within us by sharing our stories with one another. I will be giving each lady a small journal and will be teaching a lesson on Art Journaling and writing down the lessons, the prayers, the visions that God gives us. I pray that all the women will be deeply touched by this retreat and will come out completely released, renewed and refreshed.
If you live in or near Calgary and would be interested in attending this retreat please contact me via email at ksun underscore 1999 at yahoo dot com (all together including the symbols).
Happy Creating Everyone!

What a fantastic sign for your retreat! Love the symbolism of jewels for tears. Sort of the ashes to beauty idea...very nice, Kelly.
