Ephesians 3:20 - SIWS 29

Happy New Year!! Have you adjusted to writing 2012 yet?  I still have to think about it and double-check myself. :)

For our first Say It With Scripture challenge at The Sweet 'n Sassy Connection, we're focusing on a verse that talks about how wonderful the Lord is.  What better way to start off a new year than to remind ourselves of how much the Lord has done for us? He does so much more than we could ask or think.  There have been so many times when I've seen the Lord work out situations that (humanly speaking) were pretty tough in a way that was much better than anything I could have thought of myself.  That alone should remind me that the Lord does NOT need my help in arranging the events of my life.  If only I would learn!!

Our Challenge Verse

Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us.  Ephesians 3:20

As we start this new year, let's meditate on this verse and remind ourselves to remember all the ways the Lord has worked in our life in the past and that He does not need our help in working things out for us.

For my card, I chose to keep it simple and used this weeks sketch from CPS (CPS249).  I love the elegance of black and white.  This design helps keep the focus where it needs to be...on the Scripture







Supplies:
Cardstock:  Georgia Pacific (white), Recollections (black)
Patterned Paper:  Bo Bunny (Enchanted)
Stamps: Sweet 'n Sassy (Encouragement Scripture Digis)
Embellishments/Tools:  Ribbon (JoAnn), Pearls (BG), Spellbinders (petite ovals large and small)

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
CPS 249 - sketch
Sentimental Sundays #83 - Anything Goes
Paper Sundaes #101 -Something old (the pearls on my card), Something new (the Bo Bunny paper)
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
