Used Clay

The last several months, I have been fascinated with clay.  Over the years,whenever I attend a craft fair, I always gravitate to the pottery artists and I usually bring home at least another mug.  Finally, I have had the opportunity to give it a try myself.  Last fall, my daughter joined me in the class and this spring, my husband gave the wheel a try.  It has been tons of fun and I am longing to get my own equipment.  (Gotta heal from a saw accident first, bummer.)
This collage depicts some of the uses of clay and is inspired by Jeremiah 18:6:
"Like clay in the hand of the potter, so are you in my hand"
We are to be moldable in the hands of God and trust that He will shape us to His will.  Some of us will be seed planters who share the Good News, some waterers who encourage and disciple, and some to bring in the harvest.
Our job is to try to stay moldable and on the wheel. 
Hugs to you.
