LOC Faith Art Friday

Each Friday Laura from Layers of Color posts Faith Art Friday - I love these posts, they are not aimed at promoting any product but are purely to share our faith, through our creativity - to encourage and share from the heart!


Faith Art cards are a passion of mine, I love to be able to combine my passion for paper with my passion for HIM!  I am very grateful to my friend Sabrina (okimom2girlz) who sent me so many stamped scriptures, I do type them on the computer but LOVE the fonts used - this one is a Plain Jane from Verve


This beautiful bird is from the Layers of Color  Backyard Birds art stamp set, I have stamped it twice and cut out the bird from the second one, coloured it lightly with chalks and popped in back on with foam dots - I love the dimension it has added.


As I was working on this card I started thinking about the scripture here and I realised I need to take it on board more.  Being weary it seems, is not the same as being tired - when you are tired a good nights sleep can be a huge help - but when you are weary, you are worn down...not just in the physical but more often than not - the heart!!  A weary heart happens to us all throughout life's experiences - I am sure there are none exempt - so when it does, let's remember this verse and apply it.


For me it is one thing to give things to God - but totally another to leave them with Him.  Why do feel I need to take these things that weigh me down back - I have no idea, but I am going to try harder to leave them in His capable hands - they certainly aren't doing me any good!  LOL!  I could learn a lot from the 'Birds of the Air!

This card ios also for the Twisted Sister Challenge this week - monochromatic and featuring a bird - gee, I guess who set that challenge! LOL!

  2. Hi Linda - praying that you will soon heal - and that you will also be refreshed spirit, soul and body as you rest in HIM.

    Love this card - I am a fan of monochromatic colour schemes so this really appeals to me, and the way you have presented the scripture is beautiful.
    The music behind the bird also reminds me that we find strength in praising God - The joy of the Lord is our strength - how often I am guilty of forgetting that!! Thank you for blessing me with this card.
    Blessings
