For ADSR4's Challenge #5 ~ In my relationship with Christ, I often get myself into such a mess in my heart and my head for a variety of reasons, and there's an incredible distance that I feel. In this layout, I tried to contrast the starkness of the text and the empty frames with the life and light of Christ.
