Happy Wednesday!! It's time for a new challenge at Word Art Wednesday. This week we're focusing on Psalm 13:6, "I will sing unto the Lord, because he hath dealt bountifully with me." This is the time of year when we are especially conscious to express our gratitude for the things the Lord has done for us. It's easy to be light-hearted and sing to the Lord when things are going well. But do you know, that if you concentrate on the many wonderful things the Lord has done for you, it makes it easier to deal with the curve-balls of life? I've experienced that my self this week. While rejoicing over a long-term problem being resolved, we had a serious car issue occur this evening. However, when I think of all the Lord has done for me, not just in resolving the long-term problem but in the circumstances surrounding the car break-down (it occurred as I was pulling into a parking lot just a little over a mile from home), I can't help but continue to have a song in my heart and on my lips. The Lord is good to us on a day-to-day basis and having a heart filled with gratitude just makes your day go so much better.
For my card this week, I used a sketch by Mojo Monday (#469) for the card inspiration. Other than rotating the sketch 90 degrees, I followed it pretty closely and just added some bling and sequins as accents. Some faux stitching and white gel pen accents are the final embellishments.
