9/10: Cranes

Hundreds of cranes decorate the sanctuary at church now. Each one of them is a prayer, and a reminder.
Everyone at both services was asked to write a prayer on a piece of origami paper and either (attempt to) fold it into a crane or simply fold it in half.
The ones that weren't made into cranes were given to me to do just that.
It sounds weird, but it feels different folding a crane with a prayer on it vs. folding a regular one. It's more meaningful, I guess. I  get to turn a simple piece of paper into something beautiful - a prayer crane that can fly requests, hopes, and hurts to the Lord and yet remain here to serve as a reminder.
I think that's pretty awesome. :)
