A room accent becomes a prompt for remembering God's mercy. The half-spherical bowl of rocks represents the world. The dark rocks symbolize fallen mankind and the single white one, our sinless Savior. The contrasting rocks also remind us of the daily battle we face to live godly lives, of good versus evil, light versus darkness.

A room accent becomes a prompt for remembering God’s mercy. The half-spherical bowl of rocks represents the world. The dark rocks symbolize fallen mankind and the single white one, our sinless Savior. The contrasting rocks also remind us of the daily battle we face to live godly lives, of good versus evil, light versus darkness.  Jesus said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life” John 8:12 NIV.

Bold and uplifting, pink makes a strong statement about God’s omnipotent power. Sparrows remind us of His promise to watch over us: “Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father … So do not be afraid; you are of more value than many sparrows.” Matthew 10:29, 31 NRSV. 

The appliqué pillow is made by adhering a sparrow motif to the fabric. A running stitch edges the bird and shell buttons create a mock flange border sewn on after the pillow is stuffed. Birch branches add natural contrast.
