Word Art Wednesday ~ I Pray ~

Good morning and welcome to a new bi-weekly challenge at Word Art Wednesday
 We have more great prizes this week SO be sure to stop by and check this challenge out.  AND make sure to post your creation for an opportunity to win!

This week our digital scripture comes from the New Testament... specifically Philippians.  This particular passage moved me tremendously this week.  So much so, that when I went to "create" a card...  the Holy Spirit led me to this...  very simple...  very clean...  and yes, God very clear!


As Christians, we want to finish the race.  And that competitive streak makes us want to finish strong.  And that can be complicated by rash decisions, short words and hurried tasks.  The Lord wants our best Christians...  nothing more or nothing less.  We give him our love and our own faculties, wisdom and judgment will grow exponentially.  We need to get out of the way and let Him do what he does so well.  

Blessings...

Let it Sew, Let it Sew

Yes, you read my title correctly!  No snow here!  But a whole lot of imaginary stitching going on!  With this month's stamp and die release at Our Daily Bread Designs focused on quilting and sewing...  it gives a wanna be stitcher like me, instant gratification!  I shared in my April 1st post that my Mom is an accomplished quilter.  I however, did not inherent that gene.  My creativity lies entirely with paper, glue and glitter!  Not that I am creative, but I do try!  ;-)
So here is a fun card I pulled together for this week's Mojo Monday sketch challenge  using a few of ODBD's April release items including A Time to Mend stamp set and Americana Quilt Paper Collection...

and the new items you see...


and a few old favorites...







And this week's MOJO Sketch...

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Until next time...
