Feathers, feathers, feathers

Feathers seem to be very “in” right now.  I have seen a lot of feather themes lately, both in real life and trending on Pinterest.  From feather tattoos to feather accessories, they seem to be everywhere. I have to admit, something about feathers just draws me in. I think in my mind I associate feathers with freedom, like a caged bird set free.  They bring to mind the freedom I have found in Christ. Today I was walking back from the cafeteria when I stumbled upon a tiny polka dotted feather. I picked it up and took it home. It’s now residing on the front of the door to my room. It serves as a simple reminder of the freedom I have been given… “It was for freedom that Christ set us free; so keep standing firm, do not be subject again to a yoke of slavery!” Galatians 5:1

Recently I crafted using feathers. I saw a picture of painted feathers online and decided I wanted to do something similar.  The pictures below tell the story of that endeavor.  Enjoy!
