Mornings with Mary: Project Gabriel

Gabriel Project
saves babies' lives, mothers' souls
a mission for God.

For my journal pages,
I used the following materials:
top half of a reminder to hand 
in Gabriel Project cans filled with money 
for the Project's needs to help new mothers;
(we handed out cans to the parish on Mother's Day
and had them brought back on Father's Day-
fitting days, don't you think?)

scrapbooking stickers;
photo of youngest son when he was a toddler;
remnants of a graduation announcement envelope;
bear from a thank you card;
water color wash

merrily I make my way
to Mornings with Mary

How nice to have a project to help new mothers. I know there are lots who need help. It would be a wonderful feeling as a new mother in need to know that someone cares. God bless you for being involved.

I hadn't heard of this project before, but I know of some L.A. projects that are similar. Great way to do service. Love your journal pages.
