All In God's Perfect Time

How many of you remember the song recorded by the Byrd's that was based on Bible verses found in the Book of Ecclesiastes?  It was very popular, and one that most of us can remember.  This is because it had not only a catchy tune, but a very powerful message.  God's Word is such a blessing to us.  Whether we enjoy it for reading and studying, meditating, using in our art, in music, or however we choose to use it - God's Word blesses and enriches our lives.  These verses tell us that all things happen in God's perfect time, and that all things have an appointed time.  Ecclesiastes 3:1 is our scripture for this week's free word art file at Word Art Wednesday.  I hope it is a blessing to you, and that you will stop by to play along with us in this week's challenge.  We have THREE prizes this week.

My card was made using some very old Scenic Route patterned papers from my stash, a Jolee's pumpkin (also from my stash), some inking, machine stitching, buttons, baker's twine and jute.   Pretty simple card.  I'm sharing it in the following challenges:
