Wedding gift

I have a policy that I won't spend any money on wedding gifts anymore, I will just give the bride a painting (or paint the invitation if I can). I am heading to a shower tomorrow for a bride-to-be and unfortunately we won't be able to attend the wedding so this will be her gift.  I don't know her but her future mother in law is a dear friend and the groom to be grew up with our son, Zach. I like to try to give something meaningful and I thought the two palms were just the thing for this couple.
They are both thinking about the mission field so I thought Psalm 92 :12 was a
good Scripture to go with this painting.
 It's an 8x8 on a panel.

I wrote this on the back of their sweet little wedding invitation. It was so pretty on the front. It is still drying so I can't erase the lines yet.  And, here it is Saturday night and I am just getting this present together. I only had one shot at writing it and no time to practice my calligraphy so it's a-- take a deep breath and just write it-- type of thing. Now I need to figure out how to wrap it.

Lovely work, Martha! I once did a wedding certificate for a client that wanted twin palm trees. (Yours look MUCH better than mine turned out!!!) :)
