Sharing God's Word at Word Art Wednesday

Hello my crafty and bloggy friends!  I hope that today finds you all doing well and praising God in everything.  I know that it's not always easy to remember to give God praise when things aren't going well, but...it's more important than ever to praise Him even when times are difficult.  He wants to hear us giving His name the glory and honor it deserves ALL the time.  So, I would suggest to just say "PRAISE the LORD" today, and say it OUT LOUD so that He hears it and gets the praise He deserves.  He loves to hear us praise Him, and Satan and all his demons can hear you PRAISE GOD too!  No, things aren't always going to be going perfectly, but God is always going to be able to get you through them perfectly.  His grace is ALWAYS sufficient, and He wants you to trust Him, and to call out to Him, to ask Him for His help, and of course.....to ALWAYS praise Him.

This week at Word Art Wednesday, we have another great challenge for everyone.  As always, it's an Anything Goes Challenge, and we have another gorgeous word art file for everyone.  Feel free to stop by Word Art Wednesday, save the free word art to your computer, and then stop by to share in our challenge this week.  We have TWO amazing sponsors; Digi Darla Designs is giving away 5 free digis to one winner, and Heart & Soul Rubber Stamps is giving another lucky winner a rubber stamp set of their choice.   It's another great week to be a winner at Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes Challenges.

 I'm going to share my card into the challenges where it fits the theme as follows:

Twist of Faith Cards Challenge Blog - Challenge #37 - The Ties That Bind - I've used jute and Baker's Twine on my card
 
Simon Says Stamp Vintage Challenge Blog - A Little Paper - As it turns out, this is the perfect card for this challenge.  I found this scrap of paper (green gingham check) and there was such a tiny bit left.  I measured to see if it was big enough for a card base, and it was literally the PERFECT length and I just had to trim the width slightly.  I got SO lucky to be able to squeeze out one more card from this lovely 6x6 paper pad from Simple Stories Baby Steps line.

I thank you SO MUCH for stopping by today to say hello and take a little peek at my card.  It's always such a blessing to me when you stop by, and I look forward to visiting each of you on your blogs this week to see what you've been creating.  Please do me two favors this week:  1) stop by Word Art Wednesday to play along in our challenge this week, and 2) PRAISE the Lord OUT LOUD.  God is SO good to us!   Let Him know.
 
Praising God for you,
Karen

    Just on another note, as far as I understand it, our Google Followers badge on our blogs wont disappear. Its only Google Reader thats being discontinued. Fortunately I have never used Google Reader and have used my Blogger Dashboard all the years to follow my friends and ascI understand our Dashboard will stay.

  7. Hi Karen! Such a gorgeous card! Love the design and those flowers are amazing! Love the scripture sentiment! I've been so busy lately running to practices, games, and concerts! It is taking all I've got to get my DT cards finished on time. School will be over the end of June for us. Totally can't wait! :)
