Hello Delightful Friends and Family,
It's time for the Word Art Wednesday Anything Goes Challenge (family friendly)! This weeks sponsors are Pink and Main and Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps (digital). Hope you'll play along to get a chance to win one of the prizes and share with us your talents! We had over 300 entries last challenge!! That's so great and so much inspiration to check out.
I printed my Scripture art on vellum and it turned out somewhat light, hope you can read it but if not it's from Galatians 6:9 and if you'd like to use it for a project be sure to head over the Word Art Wednesday and grab it. I diecut the vellum using the Lawn Fawn stitched rectangle and then added the butterflies (punch) and adhered them to the vellum then added the adhesive beneath the butterflies so it wouldn't show through on the vellum and it was enough to keep it attached to the watercolor paper;
Here is a picture of the coneflower before I added the Scripture, vellum and butterflies. I found a really easy tutorial HERE to make this flower. It took a little practice but I finally felt like I "got it"!
Our Scripture verse this challenge is Galatians 6:9 "And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not."
This verse got me to thinking about the life of Ruth and Naomi in the Old Testament, it happens to be what I am teaching in our Ladies Morning Bible Study on Wednesdays. Even though it's a New Testament scripture it certainly applies to the life of Ruth. She was so willing to work and stay with Naomi, she didn't seem to mind going out and gleaning in a field to provide for them. She literally walked by faith and was met with grace from a close relative named Boaz. Ruth didn't grow weary in well doing and she most definitely reaped the benefits! What a wonderful love story and not only a love story but a story of redemption, too. Did you realize she is mentioned in the lineage of Jesus (Matthew 1:5)? A Gentile, a woman, a Moabitess listed in the genealogy of Jesus Christ now that's amazing grace! Unmerited favor, that's what we find in our Redeemer and that's what Ruth found in her kinsman redeemer named Boaz! I am learning so much from the book of Ruth.
Well that's it for me today. It's been such a busy season of life, I rarely get to blog but I'm sure glad I can share a card or two a couple of times a month. Thanks for visiting and God bless!
