This is the finished version of this:


Thank you to everyone who gave me input and suggestions to make this better. It helped alot. :aww:

This is a poster to advertise a church marriage retreat. It is good for husbands and wives to get away once in a while...to focus on God and each other without the distractions of life.

"Whoever trusts in his riches will fall, but the righteous will thrive like a green leaf."
~ Proverbs 11:28

This is how Lost should have ended, with the Island floating away and the survivors crushed by a giant bottle.
Emberblue's avatar
hahahahahaha!

OR the survivors could have been trapped inside the bottle and float away.

I certainly hope that they are! I think I've heard him speak before. From his photo he looks like a happy guy who laughs alot. :D

my friend came up with the best description: He looks like someones kind old grandfather who would sit down and give you a sweet and tell a good story. And he is a grand speaker.

I met a man on the train once who had done something like this (I cannot say if was this exact program) with his wife. She had since passed on... but he had nothing but good things to say about it. He said it helped in every aspect of their life together.

I doubt it was the same program because I think this church wrote it themselves this year. Glad to hear that the one they went to was life changing. I think that programs like this can work well for married couples as long as they are willing and open to get something out of it and be changed.

I went on a marriage retreat with my husband once. It was nice but not life altering...kind of because he doesn't like doing homework and they gave us questions to answer, literature to read, and we had to sit and listen to lectures. Personally I love study questions and lectures. I guess that shows the difference between a man's mind and a woman's mind, haha!

Probably not. He said a lot of prayer and confession and open discussion and romance was involved. Sort of like finding each other all over again.

That sounds awesome! That is how it should be. I think this particular retreat has a "date night" at the end where you go be romantic with your spouse on the island. But it would be awesome if the whole retreat was as you described.

Looks great! The size of the floating island is a big improvement, and everything you added really improves the design! Fantastic job! :D

Thanks! Your suggestion of adding clouds really helped I think. It gave it more of a sense of depth. :heart:

Glad it helped! I have to ask--did you do this voluntarily for your church or were you hired to make it? It's really a fantastic poster! :D
