A Letter to God

Guest Artist: Donna


Today I am featuring the work of Donna from My Shabby Chateau. Why? Because she is a genius at repurposing! She takes items, weaves her magic, and the next thing you know, they become priceless one-of-a-kind creations!

When I decided to write this post about “A Letter to God,” I thought of her chalkboard...They have become so popular! So, I thought, what if we each had a mental chalkboard and just wanted to talk to God and let Him know who we are concerned about and whom we want to pray about?

What’s on the top of YOUR list? Try it for just a few minutes and see how many things are on your mind--how many concerns you have. And then, after you do, hand over the “keys of worry” to Him--Let Him take care of it!

Yes, let God do the work because you have already told Him what concerns you. Remember that word “faith?” Well, if you’re even the teensy weensiest bit like me, I have faith after I’ve worried, tried to fix things, worried some more, called my mom, talked to my husband, wrote an email to a friend...okay, you get the picture.

So, for one day, just take the things on your mental chalkboard--the things that concern you most--and ask for God’s blessing in your life. You can do it--I know you can! And let me know how you feel about it...I can’t wait to hear your feedback.

Oh, and if you need a chalkboard or anything else that's artsy, just visit Donna's shop at the link up at the top of this post.
Have a great day!!!

2 more things--PLEASE pray for the miners who are being rescued...I know they need our prayers!
Also, my internet has been having problems--if you don't hear from me or see me on here,
that's why!!



  1. Hi Cindy, Donna is very clever, and her chalk board very original. We could all sit down and write a letter to God...I think if I got started I wouldn't stop.
    "Thank you Thankyou..... God...I have so much to thank you for....then the love letter..."I see your beauty all around, how much you have given to me....Praise Your Name"
    YOU my friend are clever also.Because if you didn't put this on here.. many of us could never share it. Much love Crystal

  2. Hi Cindy,
    Thats a very pretty color she used, I wonder what they call that. My chalkboard would have to say Thank you God for not forgetting those who might have forgot you if even for just a season. Hugs, Kim

  3. Hi Cindy,
    thank you so much for featuring me and my chalkboard! You are an angel and have made my day! I love your idea of a mental chalkboard! I know I have spent so much time in my life worrying over things, when it would be so much better just to put it on my list to God! Thanks again!!

  4. Cindy, this is a lovely post. I adore the chalk board and from where the inspiration for this post came.

    I am definately praying for the miners. I hope your computer doesn't fail you. Argh!

    I would say to God "Thank you for the many blessings in my life and I give all the glory to you, Father".

  5. Lovely post, Cindy! I am really trying to hand things over to God! Donna's so sweet and I love all her projects!

  6. Great post!

    Visited etsy shop. Great job puting htat all together.
    have not been brave enough to do it yet, or maybe it is just that i have too many irons in the fire already
    hope it is going well



  7. Love the chalkboard but your post more. ;) I swung over to let you know that I miss your old link parties where you presented a thought provoking question and we could link up with a post from our own page. It was fun. I know you're one very busy bee though. Lots of love and blessings.
