Glory Art Challenge #8 - Put on Love

Please visit Patter's blog HERE so that you can read the words of wisdom she has shared and also to see her lovely artwork.

Maybe one day I will go back to doing paper art again for these challenges but life has got a little too busy for me at times these days. I do enjoy doing digital art as it is quick and easy... no messy paint where you do not want it or glue blobs where they are not supposed to be and you can alter colours to suit what you want to create.

Here is my CD case size artwork:

The digital kit I used for this is Love and Stuff by Kristmess Designs

Glory Art Challenge #7 - Story

Please visit Patter Cross's blog HERE to read her teaching based on her challenge for this month.

I found a great scripture to use from The Voice bible.  This verse tells me that I need to be more prepared to share the Good News with others. There are times I feel I do not live a life that shows the good news of Jesus.  I need to  be more saturated in His Word so I can be better prepared to share the best Story ever told.

All digital scrapbooking products I used are by Patty B Scraps.

This was last month's challenge hosted by Patter Cross and you can find her teaching and artwork on her blog HERE

I forgot to share this last month and did not realise until I came here today to share the July Challenge.
Here is my Encourage digital artwork:

Glory Art 2017 #5 - Attributes of God

Each month I take part in the Glory Art challenge hosted by Patter Cross on her blog which you can find the current one  HERE   and I do encourage you to visit Patter's blog so you can read the teaching she has shared.

I chose God's attribute of "mercy" for scripture and my chosen scripture comes from the International Children's Bible which lately I am finding has such great wording. I decided to order this version of the Bible which arrived last week and I am so pleased I did as I now know what I will buy for my 8 year old granddaughter for Christmas as it is a lovely Bible. It has some illustrated pages which is lovely artwork and as I already have discovered the wording is easy to understand.

Here is my digital artwork for this month:

Glory Art 2017 #4 - Perseverance - Hosted by Patter Cross

For this month the word Patter has used is "Perseverance". You can read her very encouraging teaching  HERE 

I went to Bible Gateway website to help me decide on what scripture to  use on my digital artwork. I typed in the word "persevere" and one verse that stood out to me was Revelation 2:3 and when I then checked to see what the verses surrounded that verse I felt the Lord was telling me something... even though I have been triumphant over the difficulties I have been facing I have to a degree lost my first love.
The difficulties I have been going through are that on 31st March my dear husband had a massive heart attack on the morning of the day our town became cut off by floods. The Ambulance being a 4wheel drive got through the water already coming over on the the ways into our town so Ken got to hospital where that afternoon he had a procedure performed to put a stent in his heart. With the flooding I was not able to get to visit Ken from the Friday morning until the following Tuesday. Thankfully no flood waters came into our yard at all.
Ken spent a week in hospital and while there contracted a chest infection which hampered his recovery so it has been slow but now the coughing has stopped he is getting better more each day. But life has changed some in that he now needs to take medications which neither of us had to date needed to take. The medications are ones that he will need to take for the rest of his life. We are also now looking at how we can improve our diet to help him keep his heart healthier.

I praise the Lord for the answered prayers as there were people all over the world praying for Ken.
Now I need to stop just going through the motions of living... I need to get back the real Joy that I know I should have because of all the Jesus has done for me.

Glory Art 2017 #3 - Daily

Each month Patter Cross shares a word and teaching based around that word. She shares very encouraging  teaching and lovely artwork based on the scriptures she shares.
For this month the word is  "Daily" and you can read Patters blog  HERE

When I searched for what scripture I wanted to use on my digital artwork, I found in the International Childrens Bible the verse I have used.
Day by Day our Saviour helps us.  Day by day He provides our daily needs. Day by day he asks us to take up our cross and follow Him.  We do not have to be concerned about tomorrow... only just this day.

Just now the song from the musical, Godspell came to mind and it is a song that I often in my mind sing the lines:

Oh Dear Lord
Three things I pray
To see thee more clearly
Love thee more dearly
Follow thee more nearly
Day by Day

In case you are not familiar with the song here is a Youtube of the song:


Now here is my page for this month:

Glory Art 2017 #2 - Jesus

For this month Patter chose for us to centre our thoughts on JESUS and who He is to us, personally. Once I started to read Patter's teaching ( which you can find HERE ) two scripture songs came to my mind. One of these songs - You are My All in All, I used on my digital page and the other is  a fairly new song to me that I really enjoy and used on a challenge page last month at The Lily Pad when we were to create a page about a favourite song.
I will share that page first and then my one for this month's Glory Art.
Patter each month shares prompts for journaling and this month's is something I might share  later in the month or early next month as she asks the question  " When did you accept Jesus as your Lord and Saviour? "

I have linked this image to my gallery over at The Lily Pad.
 Now,  I will share a link to the song in case anyone visiting my blog would like to listen to it:

Here is my little page for this month which I will display in a CD case in my home:
