This week's focus verse at Word Art Wednesday is Psalm 18:32-33, "It is God that girdeth me with strength, and maketh my way perfect. He maketh my feet like hinds' feet, and setteth me upon my high places." What another great reminder! It is God that is the source of our strength and He is the one that lifts us above the troubles in life. I was able to visit our daughter and son-in-law this past weekend. I went to chapel with them yesterday and the speaker reminded us that no matter what trial we may be experiencing, the need for a Biblical perspective is the same. My favorite quote from his message was, "I do not want to waste what God wants to do in me thru this trial." Wow! This is from a man that lost his wife to cancer about 7 mos. ago and is now raising their 5 young children alone. It was obvious from his message that He has learned the truth of this week's focus verse.
I really like the rich fall colors in these papers. My card design is pretty simple and includes pearls, flowers, die cuts and faux stitching.
Some pop dots behind the sentiment panel pop it up over the pearl flourish.
A little interior decorating completes the card.
