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:

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:

Glory Art 2017 #1 - The Bible

Please visit Patter Cross's blog HERE  for her teaching on this her first Scripture Challenge for this year.

Patter chose to start the year with us looking at  "The Bible". What  a great subject to make us think about. God's word is so vital to our relationship with Him. It is the way we can grow closer to Him and grow in our faith.

Here is digital art for this Scripture Challenge. It is once again a small piece of art I will display in a CD case used as a frame.



Digital products I used were the book, watercolor background paper and lily are all by Designs by Helly ( who is now a retired designer and no longer selling her designs); patterned papers and flower from a kit called Home Cooking by Connie Prince; fonts - Lobster for title and Kokila for the Bible Verse.

Glory Art Challenge #12 - Good (hosted by Patter Cross)

If you have not visited Patters blog please do so HERE so you can read the devotional thoughts she shared for this last challenge of the year.

I have missed quite a few months this year but hopefully next year I will be diligent to take part.
My page is totally a digital page. I felt lead to share the verse that I have and I like the wording I have used which is from the International Childrens Bible.

I hope those who visit this blog have a very safe and happy Christmas.

November Bible Study at Let Me Be a Blessing

This month I have started to host a Bible Study at the forum - Let Me Be A Blessing which you can find HERE and anyone who visits my blog are welcome to join as it is a place to share your Christian faith. There are  some Digital Scrapbookers involved in the site but anyone is welcome as it is not a scrapbooking forum.

The Bible Study is based on the scriptures used for the We Believe Blog Train which is something I have been involved with for some years. It is a group of Christian designers who create kits for giving away. It is a form of ministry in that is provides those who visit the blogs the opportunity to have bible based digital items for their memory pages.   You can find my blog for this HERE

I have created a digital page using items from the digital kit I designed and based on the Bible Study of  1 Thessalonians 5:16-22

Glory Art Challenge with Patter Cross - #4 - Legacy

If you have not come from Patter's blog please visit her blog HERE  to read her teaching for this month.

When I went to create my digital parts to my artwork I remembered that one time the Christian Blog train I take part in each month had the theme "Leaving a Legacy" so I found the mini kit I has designed and used it for my artwork. The quote I have used was Word Art in my kit and I felt worked very well for this month.

It is so important to leave a legacy to our children and grandchildren. I am enjoying the opportunities to share Jesus with my Grandchildren. I feel more freedom in sharing the Good News with them than with their mother right now. My Daughter is still not saved. I am praying that it will be her children that will lead Ruth and their Dad, Michael to the Lord.


If you visit my blog and do digital scrapbooking, this is the kit I created some years ago that I used for my artwork and you are welcome to download the kit HERE
It is not a very good kit as it was in my early days of designing.
