Hello Delight friends and family!
We've been enjoying our beautiful autumn weather here in northern California! The leaves are changing with cool mornings and evenings and just delightful days! My hubby and I just might hit the beach on Thursday morning to do a little bit of fishing for red tail perch in the surf before it turns too cold and windy. Fall has inspired my card today for Word Art Wednesday. I just love the Doodlebug Design Flea Market 6x6 paper, it's so cheerful! The pattern is pretty busy so I kept the design simple. The scarecrow comes from a stamp set from Darcie's Heart & Home called Crow About, I've colored the image with Copic Markers and added a button and a hemp cording bow.
The Word Art this week is from 1 Timothy 4:12. I know a lot of teachers focus in on the first part of this verse but I want to encourage you to live out the last part by being an example in the way you live, your speech, how you love/charity (agape), how you walk in the spirit by having a godly attitude, being faithful and being pure in the sight of men but especially in God's view. Paul was talking to a young man named Timothy but these instructions are perfect for us today no matter our age. I want to be an example to believers and non-believers alike. So if you are facing difficulties and living out your faith in Christ before people, just remember that they are watching you, so your attitude speaks volumes even without words. You will be pleasantly surprised when someone asks you about how you can be so at peace in the midst of turmoil or difficulties. You can share the love of Jesus with them for you know it's what is sustaining you, sharing the Gospel message is really empowering and will give you boldness to share even more. It's such a blessing to minister God's love to others by sharing your testimony.
