Glory Art #5 - Not Alone - hosted by Patter Cross

Please visit Patter's blog  HERE so you can read the  teaching and story behind the words she chose for us to work with - Not Alone.  She has shared the song of which I shared two lines on my digital page.
It is always good to be reminded that we are never alone.  The scripture from Deuteronomy 31 is a really good verse to memorize for those times when we do forget that the Lord has promised to always be with us.
  I was thinking of using a verse from Psalm 23 as it is a Psalm that comes to my mind at times as it was the last scripture my sister and I read to my father the day he died so then it was the Psalm that was read at his funeral.

Glory Art Challenge with Patter Cross - #4 - Wisdom

Please visit Patter's blog HERE to read her devotional thoughts centred on the chosen word "Wisdom" for this fortnight's challenge.

The day I read the challenge details and devotion was the day my husband and I do a Bible Study with our neighbour across the road who is a quadriplegic man in a wheelchair living with his elderly mother. He has carers come to his home to get him out of bed in the morning and then into bed at night ( his mother is not capable of doing this - she is in her early 80s).  David is a Born Again Christian and delights in Ken and I doing these studies with him - God was definitely in control with our decision to move to this little town.  Back to the theme "Wisdom"  that afternoon in our study we just happened to come across the verse in James that I have shared on my artwork.   God's perfect timing.
When looking for a quote to include on my page, once I saw the one I have used... I just had to use it as my word for this year is "LISTEN".

Glory Art Scripture Challenge with Patter Cross - #3 - Truth

Please visit Patter's blog HERE so you can read her teaching based on the word "Truth".

When searching for what Bible verse to use for my digital artwork I came across the Good News Bible's version of Psalm 51:6 which I have used on my page.
I am claiming this verse as a prayer for myself because I know that I need the Lord's help to have my mind filled with His wisdom. I cannot do it in my own strength.

For my digital artwork I recently discovered Digital Scraper and have been watching and reading through the great tutorials they have and I wanted to try something I have learnt on this page - the stenciling of a word. It was fun to create and I can see me doing more of this.

Glory Art with Patter Cross - #2 - Representative

My husband and I returned from a wonderful holiday - cruised to New Zealand and stayed on with my brother and his wife for a week at Rotorua. The cruise was great - enjoyed everything about it. Then our time with my brother was good ( no real opportunities to verbally share our faith but we let them know we do live for Jesus by what we do with the money we raise through the crafts we sell).
With being away I was unable to create something for Patter's first challenge but I have done something for this second one.

Today in Church our Pastor commenced the theme for this year and it is "Sharing Life - Sharing Christ".  As I read Patter's teaching (  HERE )  it all fitted together so well. I just had to use the words from our Church theme on my page along with one of the verses that Patter suggested.
To truly share our lives we do need to be holy in what we say and do and in doing this we share Christ with the world.

Scripture Lessons and Lyrics Challenge by Patter Cross - #22 - A Hallelujah Christmas

This is the last challenge page for this year of 2014. Next year I hope to continue to take part in Patter's Challenges but also plan on taking part in challenges at His Kingdom Come.  So you may get to see more scripture art from me next year than what I usually do.

Please visit Patter's blog  HERE to read her thoughts surrounding her chosen song and also a link to the song - A Hallelujah Christmas.

I will be away for most of January so I will possibly return from an overseas holiday to catch up on challenges.  My husband and I are going on a Cruise to New Zealand. The cruise finishes in Auckland and instead of flying straight home to Australia, we are having a week with my brother and his wife who live at Rotorua.  My brother is taking a week off work to be our tour guide and he is so excited about us coming. I am looking forward to spending time with him also.  If you read this blog posting of mine, please join me in prayer for my brother and sister-in-law as they are both non-believers in Jesus Christ.  I am praying that Ken and I will be given opportunities by the leading of the Holy Spirit to share our faith with them while we are there in their home.

Here is my digital page for this last challenge:\


For my digital art I have used a kit called Leaving a Legacy which is a kit I designed for the Blog Train I take part in each month.  You can find this kit  HERE 

I pray that those who visit my blog will be truly blessed in 2015 as you all seek to know our Lord Jesus more and more each day.

Scripture Lessons and Lyrics Challenge with Patter Cross - #21 - Mary Did You Know

This time Patter has chosen to share a song I am very familiar with - Mary Did You Know.
Please visit Patter's blog HERE to read her teaching based on this song.

Whenever I hear this song it reminds me of years ago when I would each year take part in a Christmas display in our town organised by the combined Churches of our town. It was "Christmas the Full Story".  Starting with the Birth  and finishing with Christ's resurrection.  I helped paint scenery and props and acted in different roles over the different years.   One year I was Mary ( Jesus mother) at the cross and this song played in the background.  It really touched my heart as I could realise how Mary must have felt watching her son die on the cross and not fully understanding why until after He rose to life.

For my digital art I chose to use the scripture where Mary accepts what the Angel told her was to take place.  She accepted but possibly did not really comprehend what role she was playing in God's plan for His  redemption.

Scripture Challenge Lyrics and Lessons hosted by Patter Cross - #20 - He Knows My Name

Patter has introduced me to another song I had not heard before. Please visit her blog HERE

and also read about what you will be doing next year  HERE
I have been taking part each fortnight or week with the Scripture Challenges hosted by Patter since 2008. Hopefully next year I will find time to take part but I have discovered His Kingdom Come ( see the logo to the side of my blog ) and hope to take part in their challenges which may take more of my time as it will be physical art instead of the digital art I have been doing for Patter's challenges this year.

Here is my page for this fortnight:
