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:

Scripture Lessons and Lyrics Challenge hosted by Patter Cross #19 - Something in the Water

Please visit Patter's blog HERE to read about the song she has chosen for this fortnight.

I am running late at  creating and sharing for page for this challenge. We had been anxiously awating the birth of my fourth grandchild. Last Saturday - 15th November, Andreas James was born. He arrived on his big sister, Imogen's 8th Birthday.
I am blessed to have four grandchildren now with this being the first grandson. Another little baby for me to rock in my arms and sing "Jesus Loves the Little Children" to.

Here is my page which I quickly put together:

Scripture Lessons in Lyrics Challenge with Patter Cross - #17 - He Knows

I am not up with the latest Christian songs so again Patter has shared a song I had not heard of.
You can read her thought and see the link to the song on her blog HERE

Once I read the words in the song which I have shared on my digital artwork, I knew which scripture I would use.  Our Lord and Saviour is so willing and ready to carry our burdens and yet how often do we keep a hold of them and do not hand them over to Him. We think we can do it on our own, in our own strength.  But, Oh!  how often do we fail when we do this. We struggle and struggle before letting go and giving it to Him. There is no need for us to struggle. He wants to carry our burdens. He loves us so much and does not like seeing us suffering under burdens we do not need to carry.
