Be Still... PDCC#132 and more

Hello Delightful Friends and Family!
Hope you are having a restful Sunday.  I can hear my dear sweet hubby snoring on the recliner so I know he is!  My poor guy has a lot of shoulder pain which makes it difficult to sleep at night so he is trying to play catch up this afternoon inbetween church services.  If you would lift him up in prayer I'd be very grateful. 

I'm entering this card into three different challenges.  This will be my second entry for the Play Date Cafe (#132 Color Splash challenge). 

 I'm also adding it to Word Art Wednesday #28 and the Scripture Thursday Linky Party #29 at Abby's which is "A Heart For Prayer" I believe this verse on the card from Psalms 46 is perfect for prayer for we often forget to be still and listen after praying, our busy lifestyles can distract us from the clear, powerful voice of the Lord.  It is easier than we think to train ourselves not to hear Him.  We must purposely listen and be attentive through prayer, while reading His Word and by meditating on the Word we've read.  We sang a song this morning in our worship service "Let My Words Be Few"(by Matt Redmond) perhaps that is why the Lord created us with one mouth and two ears!!!




Here are the Ingredients:  Stamps from Taylored Expressions (Faith in Bloom); Ink, Memento Tuxedo Black; Viva Pearl Pen in black; Ribbon (stash) and Designer Paper (Authentique - Delightful Collection) Spellbinders Nestabilities Scallop Oval; Card stock: Bazzill and Neenah.

Thanks for visiting!! God bless.

Come, you children, listen to me; I will teach you the fear of the LORD.  Psalm 34:11

  1. I have your DH in my prayers. Shoulder pain is not good, I know! I love your beautiful card, one of my favorite sentiments. Psalms is also one of my favorite books of the Bible.
