Psalm 40:3 WORDart


This past weekend, we had our Annual Ladies Tea at our church. It was great fun and well worth all the effort that went into it. Our theme was “It’s time to sing, dance, laugh, heal and give”. I had different ladies speak on what these topics meant to them. I was really touched by what the speaker of the “to sing” topic said. I felt God was telling me that I need to take the time to notice the song He put in my heart. Sometimes I get so busy that I tend to stress and feel overwhelmed, but if I stop and listen long enough I can hear the song He has placed there. Our pastor spoke the very next day about the same thing…that we as Christians should always have a song in our hearts and a smile on our face and others will take notice and be blessed by it. Then later when I was reading my Bible, I read this scripture and it just summed up everything perfectly. I think God was really trying to get through to me. I am so glad He loves me enough to do that.

The card~

I printed the WORDart onto Papertrey Stamper’s Select White and stamped the bird from Inkadinkado and the music notes from Papertrey in Thatched Straw. The patterned paper is from a digital kit from Shabby Princess. I tied some black satin ribbon around the first layer and tied it in a bow and added some rhinestones to the other end. I then adhered the focal image with foam tape to add that extra dimension.

Your card is so nice. Thanks for also sharing your thoughts as they did speak to me.
I have been going through some tough times emotionally lately and the Lord is bringing through it. I must stop and listen for that song.
Bless You
