Wisdom and Understanding - Word Art Wednesday #244 and #245

Hello Delightful friends and family!
Summer is scooting by isn't it?  Hubby and I are getting ready for a quick trip to San Francisco to catch a couple of baseball games and celebrate our 40th anniversary and hopefully get a little R&R.
Of course I couldn't go without posting a card for this weeks Word Art Wednesday Family Friendly Anything Goes Challenge!
Here is my card:


Here are the ingredients:
Base: Neenah bright white card stock A2 size
Next layer: Dark brown card stock
White Vellum die cut with Lawn Fawn Stitched Journal set
Leaf embossing folder (not sure of the maker) used on Neenah c/s and blended with Distress Inks
Lawn Fawn Stitched Leaves Die cut on water color paper (Ranger)
Distress Inks: Peeled Paint, Rusty Hinge, Scattered Straw, Barn Door, Aged Mahogany.
Scripture Art - Proverbs 24:3-4

This is the perfect Scripture this week since my husband & I will be celebrating our 40th anniversary. It's through the wisdom and understanding that the Lord has given us to persevere through difficult times. And it's the knowledge that it is our Savior who has filled us with the love we need to overlook the little things that annoy us so. (Ha! you know what they are!)  I think the secret to a successful marriage is no secret at all.  Think of a marriage as a triangle with Jesus at the top, you at one side and your husband on the other side.  The closer you draw near to Jesus the closer you get to your husband! The other help is to pray for your husbands weaknesses and encourage him in his strengths. Watch the Lord fill your lives with all precious and pleasant riches that money cannot buy.

Through wisdom a house is built,
And by understanding it is established;
By knowledge the rooms are filled
With all precious and pleasant riches. 
Proverbs 24:3-4


P.S. Please pray for one of our  DT members Carole Robb-Bisson she is seriously ill and needing a physical healing.  Thanks so much!
