Caryn's Tip of the Month: BREATHE!!
Here's what you need to know about using silk flags. Many people use a lot of power when flying silk flags, whipping them around. There are many types of
materials and flags out there that are more suited for fast, hard movement, such as taffeta or other polyesters. But flags made of fine silk take very little effort to make a beautiful expression
One of my favorite qualities of fine silk is that it can suspend itself in the air when used sensitively. Parachutes were originally made of silk for a good reason! Therefore, when you use your silk flags, allow them time to hang in the air. Think of the Holy Spirit as the “breath of God.” Use a little force to lift the silk into the air, and then give it a “hang time.” Allow the silk to suspend itself in the air. Here is what I do: While I am flagging, I take a breath and hold it for a moment, then exhale, keeping my eyes on the silk and thinking about the Spirit of God brooding over the earth (Genesis 1:1) Keep practicing this and see what the Holy Spirit will do! He is the very breath of God!
What I Believe
(in case you were wondering)
I believe that the Bible is the Word of God and it is true and reliable. The truths that are evident in the Word are the basis for every design, color and message that I create on silk.
I believe that Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of God. Through faith in the completed work on the Cross, I have received forgiveness of sins and healing for my body, according to Isaiah 53.
I believe that the Church is the Body of Christ. And He put all things in subjection under His feet, and gave Him as head over all things to the church, which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all. Ephesians 1:23
