Oh So Faithful


Faithful - don't you love the sound of that word. This week it is the Attribute of God that we are studying on the His Holy Name Challenge on SCS. I chose today to do my card as it is an important day for me - it is 34 years ago I gave my heart to the Lord - so it is my Spiritual Birthday....we celebrate BIG time in our house - this day has eternal value. My heart is overjoyed at the love I have received both from God and from friends who have become family to me...thank you to you all, you have done my heart good....I have had the most beautiful fellowship here and my heart, that at times grows weary, is refreshed and encouraged by each of you who have linked arms with me on this journey, held me up when I was sick and encouraged me when things seemed bleak, prayed for me and just loved me....thank God for each other...thank God for God who is our common ground, our Faithful One!

Faithful - I am so grateful that God is faithful and has been to be over the years, even in my unfaithfulness!! His love and mercy has always been there for me..and I am so grateful! Faithfulness is a quality that is rare these days whether it be in business, friendship or marriage...that is what makes this attribute even more valuable! I love this scripture and knew straight away that this DP would be perfect.....His faithfulness reaches beyond the clouds. I have used the cross from Layers of Color set Gothic Crosses, as a focal point, as it is the work that was accomplished there that is the focal point of our faith....the wings are from the Beloved Wings set and the crown , from the Regal Wings set, represents our KING!!

I feel that it is best to keep this card simple, with the message speaking loud and clear. Although this is a simpler card, it is one of my favourites - due to the message that it shares! I cannot think about God's faithfulness without remembering the testimony of my son who is featured on my Scrapbook page here.....I am happy to share this story if you want to PM me!

Thank you for looking and for your encouraging comments, I love knowing your have stopped by. It has been a lovely day here, spring is in the air....this is one of my favourite times of the year. I hope things are good where you are and your day is a good one, we are 'chilling out' after dinner... God bless you!!

  2. Oh Linda... my jaw is on the floor, not only because of the simply stated beauty of this card but also your words which so blessed me today! Happy Spiritual Birthday my sister!!! How great is His Love and Faithfulness for us, even when we are unfaithful to Him! There is a song out now based on this glorious verse and now I will be singing it all day long... can't think of the singers name right now but I love it! Your card is wonderful and I'm sure God will bless many through it's presentation here! God bless!
