The word for last weeks scripture challenge on Patter's blog: 'Triple the Scraps' was 'Name'. As always, Patter gave a wonderful teaching on the Names of God and asked her readers "When you call on the Lord how do YOU use His name?" Patter went on further to say "Praising God and expressing His attributes or NAMES helps us to remember who He is and reminds us to give Him all the glory". I thought deeply about everything Patter wrote and what the Names of God mean to me. For me, praising God thru music and seeing His majesty in nature is how I use His name. When I sing worship songs in church, I praise His Name, when I hear the birds singing I believe they are singing praises to their creator, and when I see God's beautiful, natural creations: like a brillantly colored fall tree, or a perfect flower, I am reminded of His Glorious Majesty.
So when I created this card, I used the verse Patter quoted in her blog from Psalm 99:3 "Let them praise your great and awesome name". I stamped this verse with two different alphabet stamps: Hero Arts 'Bird Branch Alphabet' and the retired Stampin Up! Alphabet 'Brushstroke'. I wanted the word 'Name' to stand out, so I used the brushstroke alphabet for that one word. The bird and branch is from the same Hero Arts alphabet set. I colored it with my Stampin Up! markers. I adhered the words to scraps of pink, green, and yellow cardstock. The background cardstock is 'Tempting Turqoise' and 'Gable Green' from Stampin Up!. I added musical brads, silver adhesive crystals and ribbon for my embellishment.

Oh Amy, your words are too kind! God gives me all of the words to share each week. He is so good!!! And I too praise Him through His creation and music. One of my favorite things to do is to ride my bike at 6:30 a.m. when we are home in SC, and see the sun rise, hear the waves on the ocean, hear the cardinals singing and the woodpeckers knocking. His amazing creation surrounds us, and only He could give us such an amazing gift each and every day and allow us to see Him like that! He is the artist, the author, and the perfector!!!ReplyDelete
