LOC FAF Love One Another

Friday's come around so quickly - one of the things I LOVE about Friday, apart fro it meaning the week end is almost here is that it is Faith Art Friday at Layers of Color - one of my favourite posts!

I have had a lot of fun creating this card, I decided that I would just see where inspiration took me suing this fabulous template by Laura -it wasn't long before the theme became clear - LOVE!! What a HUGE Subject, especially when you bring the 'God factor' into the equation! 

A new commandment I give unto you,
That ye love one another; as I have loved you,
 that ye also love one another.
By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples,
 if ye have love one to another.
John 13:34-35

 Love is patient and kind;
 it is not jealous or conceited or proud;
love is not ill-mannered or selfish or irritable;
 love does not keep a record of wrongs;
love is not happy with evil, but is happy with the truth.
Love never gives up; and its faith, hope, and patience never fail.
Love is eternal.
1Co 13:4-8

. There is no fear in love; perfect love drives out all fear.
 So then, love has not been made perfect in anyone who is afraid,
because fear has to do with punishment.
 We love because God first loved us.
 1Jn 4:18-19

I pray that God's Love will flow to you and through you today!!
